Only the good

Die young. On Tuesday I had the police do a welfare check on my brother. He died of a heart attack alone. On top of my dad having cancer and my mother's dementia, this has knocked me.

Oh my.... that is a LOT to deal with.

My heart goes out to you and I do hope you have a good supportive network. (My mother has dementia, is 96 and very close to the end.... so I know a little bit of what you must be going through).

I hope you can draw strength to weather this particularly hard time.

I'm so sorry all of this is being dumped on you at once. It's hard enough losing a parent to dementia (my dad) but to have the other things at the same time is just so unfair. My mom died of cancer but they weren't both at the same time. My heart goes out to you and I'm sending thoughts to help you get through this time.

Sorry to read this, CWS. So much for one person to deal with... Thoughts and prayers for you and the rest of your family.
