So sorry LORD BURT. Please take care of yourself. Yes it is better than in a nursing home. I've worked in a nursing home so I know how bad they are. I'm here if you need to vent or cry hun. 🤗🤗

Thanks, I am doing okay. TBH I kind of let my dad go slowly before he passed. He was showing all the signs of dementia, but it was his time I think. I am not sad, maybe bittersweet.

You're handling it better than I was if it were my dad. I'd be bawling like a cry baby if I lost my dad! 😭

Well it took me years to get over my mother's death. But I since studied spirituality, and am much more comfortable with death. I told my dad to greet me when I die. I will see him, and my family again.

I guess I was also there to care for him. I did the best I could. I think bro may feel a little guilty he wasn't there. But he has been doing a lot in terms of organising things since he passed. We all have different talents, I prefer caring to doing the admin.

Hi Lord Burt My mom is dying and it is so hard-her doctor told her she needed to go into a nursing home. But I was reading in the Bible that it is our responsibility to take care of them. So we arranged in home care for now and since I do not work I will cover shifts that others can not. My father had dementia and no way could my mother take care of him at home. So it is a catch 2 situation. I am sure you struggled. Lots of love and hugs Jules
