thank you Peggy. I am not sure of anything right now . all i know is when my sister gained control i wasnt going to put a sick man through her screaming.no one was happy when i put my disabled daughter in a very good group home she was 20 then. some comfort i do have is that my sister and nephew were in the waiting room sleeping and i stayed by my fathers bedside. i have fibro so i dont sleep half the time anyway,but who could sleep then. he went very peacefully just stopped snoring and he was gone. i was the only one in the room. thats the memorie i carry as i touched his shoulder at 3:30am told him i loved him then he was gone.

Dear Peggy...you said it sister...I very much miss the phone calls...even thou my Mom- was right next door-we still phoned and texted messaged...right before bed and as soon as we got up...I'm sure 5pm will always hold that memory for you...and now I too will be thinking of you and wishing you a happy thought of conversations past...and a prayer and a hug:)


walking thru her home is both sad and comforting- as I can still smell traces of her on things and I take care of her cats (3) who wonder where she is...my Mom and Dad have both come to me in dreams- in both times it was as if to let us just exchange those beautiful words again "I love you"...with my Mom I asked her if she was visiting me from Heaven and she shook her head"yes" and I told her I know she couldn't stay long and again she shook her head "yes"...(I was told by a friend of mine whose grabdmother canme to visit in a dream and the grandmother said that they are not supposed to talk to much- wether or not one believes is up to them, but I am a believer, for it was such a comfort)...and then a kiss and the "love you"...thank you for sharing that story with me...I would imagine it would be difficult to watch videos of your parents- I wish I had some of mine...

Please let me know how your blood work comes back- I shall be praying for good results...I'm sure the unknown is eating you up- as it does me at times...but try to remain calm as at present there is no real worry- perhaps it is something that is correctable...my Mom would have to get blood work every 4 weeks...and there were times where it is easily fixed with medicine or she was taking to high of a dose and it needed adjusting...regardless prayers are being sent your way and for it to be ok...

so glad to learn about how wonderful your son Craig is in your life...and what great attributes and charcter he must have gained by having your parents as part of his upbringing...my Dad never did get to see me marry or have a child (perhaps from Heaven

Greetings Peggy...and you are so right I can not imagine my life now without my son...have always cared for children (teacher- of special needs and have been a Director of a preschool for years upon years) but now this thing called motherhood/mommy wouldnl't trade it for the world- of' course I still have the teenage years to go- lol....feeling a bit sad today, funny how it just sneaks up on you like that...it's been a little over a month now and I just still find it odd that she isn;t around...was it like that for you?   I took care of her so I miss that part of my daily rountine and I also lived next door to her which was such a blessing in so many ways as you can probably guess...thank you for sharing with me about your family and listening to me- it sincerely helps:)

Hello Peggy,

I was just reading your message today - and just feel for you as we all try to find a way to deal with our lost.  My Dad will always be in my heart and our parents are so dear to us and that is why we honor them as we are instructed to do by God. 

I know, your parents meant so much to you - just think of the many good times you had with them.  I do not know your spiritual belief and will not impose mines on you - all I know is that we are all promised a better life then what we have here.   (Psalms 37:11)  I kept what God promised at the forefront of my mind and know that God can not lie and one day I am looking forward to seeing my Dad again.  I love him Dearly and miss his words of wisdom he spoke on so many ocassions. 

The one part of my father's departure I found hard to deal with was the decline in his ability to be independent and in basically sound health.  As time went on and he suffered a severe stroke - it hurt me to my heart to see him fight with the need to maintain a sense of independent and rapidly loose it.  I tried so hard to comfort him but he kept fighting the horrible odds and I cried so often for his lost-as his health deteriorated I took advantage in being with him as often as I could and at the same time tending to my mother who also suffered a stroke.  It was such a very hard point in my life - and no I do not regret taking on such a challenge.  I prayed so often and I know that is what got me through it all...when he did pass - I knew, he was not suffering any more.  He was not hurting any more ...he was at his death resting as we are told in the Bible at Ecclesiastes 9:5

Peggy - just hold onto the most beautiful memories that you have of your parents and pray.   You know what...I just had a thought - we will never get over our parents ..they are our parents..we will never forget them,the pain may be different as time goes on --but they will never be buried to the back of our minds.

Peggy, I understand what u are going threw.  But I've found out the hard way you CANNOT put a time frame on when the grieving should end.  You've lost both parents now so your double impacted with grief.  I lost my mom Dec. 13, 2008 and I'm still not over her not being here, because your mom is your bestfriend no matter how many disagreements we might have with them you always find your way back as thow anything had ever happened.  Like I've said before if u saw someone with a broken arm would u just tell them oh it will get better.  Well we know if u don't fix the arm it will never be the same, right.  Well that goes for your heart, its broken and its not just gonna fix itself it takes time and just like the arm the heart has to be tended to as well.  Regardless what other people might tell u I know.  Everyday is  "Well is today gonna be a good day" or amd I gonna cry all day.  I tired holding all my grief in and in just about made my take my life, I realized i cant be the way someone else might be with dealing with a loss.  My husband lost his mom exactley a year before I lost my mom.  He never cried or anything while I'm crying my eyes out over his mom.  I just couldn't believe that he didn't cry.  I couldn't understand it, but that's how he wanted to deal with it and thought that I should deal with the loss of my mom just as he had done.  DIDN'T HAPPEN, that's when I realized not everyone is the same in their own heart and we all must deal with everything in our best way for us.  I hope that maybe I helped u a little.

Sorry for the delay Peggy - but I have been helping some close associates up in age and it hurt me because I wonder where are their children.  I feel for them. 

Anyway, I hope I am able to help.   I will try to keep a closer eye on my page, Thanks,

Hi Peggy,

It is hard dealing with any lost.  I lost my Dad in 2007 - and I miss him so much!  Sometimes, I just wish, I had just one more day - just to talk, laugh, and be happy with him.  I treasure the memories of my Dad.  I love to hear of  those who adhere to the scripture admonition in "honoring our parents" - it is such a pleasant and good feeling, (Exodus 20:12) 

Our parents deserves our love and protection as they reach the latter years of their life.  I feel, we can all treasure the loving memories of our parents by holding onto the beautiful feelings we have of them.  My spiritual belief is an added source of comfort, (Romans 15:4).  The Bible gives us so much hope and comfort in knowing that our love ones are not suffering. (Ecclesiastes 9:5). 

So, enjoy the memories of your love one and treasure the good thoughts and remember - God loves all of us and our parents are in his memory. (1 John 4:8; John 5:28)

Enjoy your day!!
