My dad passed away in Oct-5weeks ago. It is very difficult and I live out of state. My mom is now afraid to be alone and I did not think for a minute this woud ever happen. Mom is very strong but now she tells me she is not as strong as I believe her to be. My Mom and Brother are saying awful things to me, very hurtful and cruel things that my husband and I don't deserve. It is soo unbelievable that we seem to be falling apart as a family unit instead of drawing together. I am sorry for all your losses too and we will be strong and work thru this.
