Pam Posted February 29, 2004 Share Posted February 29, 2004 Ever since my dad's passing, I'm never quite sure of how to help my mom. I think about how awful I feel, how much I miss him, how depressed I am, and then I can't even fathom how terrible it must be for her. Mom and I talk every day about him and cry when we need to but her whole life has changed - they used to look forward to his retirement in a few years, to travel a little, to all the nice things they could do...now there is nothing. Nothing for her to look forward to, she feels empty and lost and alone, even though she has me and her grandkids with her every day. Each night she goes home to that empty house, and I can't even imagine how lonely that must be....I know I can never fill his place, but does anyone have advice on how I can help her with her depression and feeling so lost and alone? They were married for 42 years, he was her love of a lifetime, and she was his, I just want to somehow help ease her burden, but is there any way? Thanks for your time....
