My Mom passed away at 6:30 this morning in a nursing home. She would have been 98 this month. I expected this but not less than 2 weeks since I lost my husband. I need my husband now, more than ever.
Angela, i am so very sorry for you added loss. I actually sat here and cried for you. I just cannot even imagine how you are feeling and overwhelming this must be for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers ... (((hugs))) .. Cheryl
Angela ... I am so sorry and my condolences go out to you. Whether a mother is 66 or 98 it is difficult to let them go and especially so quickly after losing your spouse. My mother was in a nursing home as well and she passed away just before her 84th b/d. She wanted to go and went so quietly with a sigh. Unfortunately, even though my brother, myself and our families were there and we sat there for hours the night before my mother hung on. The nurses told us to go home because she was resting comfortably. Then we got the phone call that she passed away at 7:45 AM and I too was expecting it, but it doesn't make it any easier.
I know so well how you would love to have your beloved with you to lean on right now and believe that he is there! He will give you strength and you're strong Angela and you will get through this. Lean on us! We'll be there for you and we know just how you feel.
Big hugs (because you need it.)
