  1. Hey, Katie! I was surprised to get a post notice, but thanks for including me. I hope on this 5th anniversary that you have many sweet memories of your dad to carry you through. In two weeks, I will cross to the second anniversary of my dear Lucie passing. Although I continue to moving on, I will never forget her. Her spirit comforts eme each day. A great weekend to all.

    The Struggle

    So long, my valued friends. It was an honor and a blessing to know you. I will keep you all in my heart. Take care, I wish you the best and Godspeed. Don
  3. Blue moon -- I saw you standing alone, without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own. Etc.
  4. I'm almost 73 and proud of it. So I tell my age, sometimes even if not asked. LOL Don
  5. There is really no way to prepare for the "inevitable" -- it will still be a great loss. But you can take one day at a time with whatever time there is, and give support to your loved one and family. If you can, talk about what is on your heart and on theirs. Best to you. Don
  6. Sometimes we can do more than we give ourselves credit for. My wife died in September in the hospital. I didn't think I could ever go back there. About two months ago, my ex-DIL was in the same hospital for tests and my granddaughter asked me to go see her mother. I felt I could not refuse, and made myself go. Well, it was very hard going in the same parking lot, walking to the same building, going through the same doors and taking the same elevator. But with deep breaths, I made it. And I am more relaxed now about hospitals. It was like I moved passed this bugaboo. I know your circumstances are different and you may not be ready to do that. I wish you the best. Don
  7. I am so sorry, Tanner, that you are having such a bum experience with Hospice. They can be so supportive. Reminds me of a lady I met a few years ago who said she was "a graduate of Hospice"! She actually got better and recovered! Take care, my friend. Don
  8. For me, it depends on the time, the place, the circumstances. If I offer advice, I would do it privately and not publicly. Don

    The Force

    Your mom is very much a part of you, and she will live on in your life, your memories, your dreams. The best gift, I believe, we can give our parents is to live the best "our life" we can, with love and service for all we meet. Don

    Do you ever ?

    My parents died almost 50 years ago and I still miss them. You are very "normal", Katie. Hang in there. Don
