Terry, I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I'll be thinking of you. I hope the transition goes well for all of you.

It was my mom's biggest fear to find him after he had already passed but sadly, that's what happened. She's completely devastated. My kids and I are her only relatives left aside from her brother. She'll be coming to live with us sometime in the next months - as soon as we can get her packed up. She's lived in her home for over 40 years so it won't be easy for her, especially since she's just lost my brother. If ya'll could add my mom to your thoughts, I'd be really grateful.
God bless you FishersMom, I am so very very sorry for your family. Praying for you and your mom, please try to take care of yourself and her.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. A mother should never have to bury her child, no matter the age.

Your family is in my prayers, and I pray that your mother adjusts quickly to the move. As someone said on the first page, the children in the home will bring her a renewed joy and you will see the transformation.

I fear something of the same sort will happen to my father - he is 44 and has had a major heart attack a few years ago and a smaller one shortly after. He stopped smoking for about a year afterwards but started up again just as heavy as always. Eats junk food.. mostly drinks just coke and water. I think its a timebomb, and my Mother and I try and get him to stop smoking every time he lights up. One day I hope it annoys him so much that he quits.

If you need to talk to your friends here at DC, we will all be here for you Terry.

It is hard to lose your children before you go. My grandparents had 5 children and lost 4 of them before they died - in fact my grandfather just gave up and didn't see any point to staying alive.

Oh Terry, I am so sorry. I can't imagine how hard it must be for your mom, and now you are all looking at some major changes in your lives. Knowing that your mom will be cared for will be some comfort, but it sounds like you already have a full and busy household. This will take some adjustment, and I pray that it goes well.

Saludos, Karen
