You are most certainly welcome! .  It is with discernment that one should take into account being prepared for the time most  do not want to face, the death of our love ones.   Tad, I do not know if you are a Bible reader - but, if you read Proverbs 3:13-18 - it shows you the practicality  in using discernment in ones' life and how it is more precious then corals.  I hope it may help you to see just how valuable our having discernment helps  If you have any additional concerns or the need to just discuss - please feel free to contact me.

Thank you for your comment Diamond. It is really important to have all arrangements in writing before anything happens. I lost my father 6 years ago, but my mom and stepfather are getting older. He recently had a health scare that had me thinking. If anything happens, I'm the one who would have to care for them. All my siblings have families of their own. I read this article about caring for aging parents years ago. Now it feels more relevant for me. Hopefully it can help some others as well.

For ALL caretakers - when being the sole caretaker it is so important to have in writing prior to your love one decease all arrangements.   It is just common that  death brings about all forms of characters - so having everything in placed and signed will help alleviate a lot of unnecessary  confusion and possibly legal implications.  I have observed from personal and friends and family situation that the one without proper forethought - usually have the most confusion.  If, the family choose to act up despite the solid arrangement or wish of the decease - then that is their problem.  However, to alleviate any unnecessary stress - get all papers and arrangements in ADVANCE prior to the death of your LOVE one.

This is for Jennifer Grossma,

Dear Jennifer please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your dear mother! Also, give my condolences to your father.

I just read your post about your mother passing and I feel that you have done the right thing. You are your mother's daughter and you took your father's feelings into consideration. It's not unusual for family to act up and behave in an unfavourable manner. As your mother's family has done. It's deplorable the way people want to take away the right and privilege and love that is shared within the immediate family of mother and her husband and daughter etc. I feel that you have done the right thing. My mother had told me to do whatever I wanted to do with whatever. And I did. You may end up having some consequences but it's your mother not their mother. It's your father's wife! I feel that you can do whatever you want to do and when you want to do it. You are not beholding to anyone. Regardless of what they may think. My advise to you is listen to your gut feelings and not your head. Listen to the little voice inside of you and just go with it. If they don't like it then too bad! They will lose out on having you in their lives. As my paternal grandmother said the only words I ever heard her say in English I want to say them to you. "I wish-a-you-luck!"

Cyber Hugs,

It's been awhile since I have been on here. I really do not know how to use this site. It's been 6 years since I lost my father and yes it has gotten easier but not. There are times like tonight when I struggle. I think maybe it's the change of seasons. Also, maybe hard times. I miss him so much.

Lean on the strength your Dad gave you all thru your life. Stay strong, he'll be there when it's your time to cross over.
