Please accept my deepest condolences.
Your lovely story resonates with me on so many levels. Thank you for posting your words. They have inspired me to embrace this time in our lives more willingly.
I wonder how much longer my mom will be with us. She is 92 and in the early stages of dementia. She recently sold her house and moved into a seniors residence; I had been living with her since dad passed away four years ago. I am bracing myself for what comes next and what that may be like for her and all of us.
