Awwwww I'm so sorry about your Mom, and other family members that passed...sounds like a rough 4 years. I have much respect for you for helping your
Mom, and being there for her. Your absolutely right, you would have never forgiven yourself had you not been.
My Grandma passed in Feb., peacefully in her sleep.....she had been living in CA after my Grandpa passed and she died on thier wedding anniversary one
year later exactly, it was bizzare. We flew her back to be buried in PA by her husband, lol, and even gave her the whole "creepy" open casket
viewing Catholic funeral she wanted, she was buried next to her husband, it was snowing, and it was surreal actually.
I'm in a similar boat right now with my Dad, he is actually very healthy still, in his 70's...but he is starting to show signs of dimensia, and
it's friggin so awful and scary...he just get's this "look" in his eyes, and you know he's not there at those moments, he has always been such a
proud ,strong man...and he doesn't believe us that it happens...or at least he doesn't think we should make a "big deal" of it. I could never
leave this all up to my sister, he's a "handful" to say the least!
Thank-You for sharing your story, it makes me feel alot better that I'm doing the right thing, but it's hard.
P.S. LOL, the last day I spent with my Grandma was doing her nails, she loved that, and attending a Jewish Sabot, hope I spelled that right, anyways
it's like this thing where they sing in a kind of "prayer" meeting, then they all drink a glass of wine, Grandma enjoyed that, but the guy singing
and the songs were cool, "fiddler on the roof" stuff, he was just some volunteer who came and sang at the old folks home with his guitar. They all
loved it, my Grandma was "rocking" out...lmao...then we went and decorated soap, and played bingo...it was a wonderful day...We all laughed so hard
that night at how much my Italian Catholic Grandma...loved that Sabot.
