My Mom!

by Marion Many

I just lost my mom on May 29,2012,she was 90 years old I took care of her for the past 11 years ,we lost dad 4 1/2 yers ago.I took care of my mom who had a stroke 11 years ago and she had dementia the last two years! I cannot explain the emptiness,the sadness I have I am so lost without her ,she was my best friend,I can tell anything to,she never judged always had a smile on her face! She truly was the sunshine in my life! She spent 11 days in ICU then I had to decide to take her home or nursing home and I chose home where I lost my Dad as well,she lasted two more days and we were all by her side ,grandkids n great grandkids she did not go alone. I am 54 the youngest of four,and nomatter what age its not easy losing a parent and also both parents,its hit me pretty hard and the stages of grief seem endless! I know shes out of pain now and in a better place with Dad,just this feeling of loneliness n emptyness is awful!missing her n dad so much RIP Mom N Dad !Marion
