Lost my Mom just two days ago

My Dad died in 2008 and my Mom's heart was broken. They would have been married 60 years that following June. We found out that she had Alzhimers but my Dad never accepted it. She ended up falling and breaking her hip, followed by pneumonia and small heart attacks. At this point she was in the last stages of Alzhiemers. The part that broke my heart was when I would call her and she didn't want to talk. She was in Hospice for about one week. Luckily I got to talk to her that day because my sister happened to be with her. We live in NY but my Mom was in Florida with my sister. I had just made flight reservations that day to go see her tomorrow(Fri 2/21).Four days too late.

I am sorry for your loss of your precious Mom. These will be the most difficult days ahead to deal with RAW GRIEF. It hurts so bad you just want that pain to go away. Just take one day at a time and you will soon find that time does ease the grief.
It is not easy when we lose our parents who nurtured us. We somehow feel an emptiness and a difficulty to go on living for a long time. We feel somehow that the atmosphere we are in will never change. But Thank God it does. Life is never the same again. But you will find in time new ways of living. Putting new things in place in one's life does help us somehow get through each day.
One day at a time is the only way to cope. May God draw close to you at this difficult time and give you His Comfort and Peace.
