Keep your head up, losing a parent that you love and respect is one of the most difficult things to go through. Remember that they would want you to be happy and enjoy your life. My wife and I both struggle with this very issue. There is peace to be found, have faith and patience my friend. 65'

They sound like two wonderful ladies. The pain will dissipate, but the love and memories will live on.

Losing a close family member is always the worst thing in life. A car fell on my dad when I was 30. Pulled him from under it and did CPR until the Paramedics arrived. He was 50, Now I am 67 and I remember holding him and crying my eyes out like it was yesterday.

I wish you well. It is certainly always rough. My Dad and I were never that close but it still hurt.

God bless. Stay strong. I lost my oldest son 1 year ago today. It's been hard but much harder for my wife who lost her Dad 6 months prior. My Mom fell 3 weeks ago and my Dad the very next day. Both were hospitalized and then sent to Rehab. She's coming home this afternoon. My Dad next week. Both are not so well. I feel your loss. They sound like really great people.

I lost my father a few months ago. It was hard, but it was harder watching him suffer with dementia and everything before he passed. At least now he’s not suffering.

Remember the happy memories and the love and light they brought to your life. We are truly lucky to have had people like that in our lives.

I will keep all of you in my prayers.

From personal experience.

The pain never goes away, but it gets easier to deal with, with time.


I don't know where I heard this but...

"Death of a loved one is like having a brick in your pocket. At first it is imposable to do anything. Then as time goes on you find ways to work around the brick. In time you know the brick is there but it no longer stops you from enjoying life"

Very sorry for your loss. You're doing the best thing possible by just being there for each other. Sometimes a hug and tears are the best remedy. As men, we think we need to fix everything...but sometimes we can't.

A Mother's love is strong. If we could bottle it and spread it around, the world would be a much better place.

We started raising our grandson 5 years ago and as hard as it is for me, my wife gives her 1000%. A Mother's love is strong for sure.

Sorry for your family's losses, and thanks for sharing the stories.
I'll be watching for her work next time I watch MD.
Strength and positive thoughts

We all go through it, but it does not make it easier. I lost my mother 1 year ago May. It was hard holding her hand watching her pass, and not a thing that I could do to help her, after her helping me all of my life. The hugs you give are the ones you get. Hang on to your memories, and your loved ones will always be with you.

You did the most amazing thing anyone can do for a dying loved one (or anyone for that matter)

Just hold their hand!
