    Sue, I'm very sorry to read your sad news-but glad your Mum is now at peace.

    I hope you find strength for the times ahead.

    Love,

    Thank you all.

    It's early days of course but alongside the feelings of sadness there is a sense of relief and release. Both for mum and for us.

    Hopefully mum and dad are together somewhere - and no doubt falling out already! Today is a lovely sunny day and although I'm only doing washing, cleaning the house, walking the dog and so on, I am doing it without feeling I should be with mum or sorting something out for her.

Even when we got the call at 4 in the morning that mum's breathing indicated that the end was very near she battled on for another 11 hours. We have been supported throughout by the carers and nurses in mum's care home, for which we are so grateful.

    As many of you will understand it's a mixture of sadness and relief that mum has been released.
    Dear Sue,

    Your mum is free now but it is you and your family that I am thinking about. I hope you can find peace.

    She is free at last! I am dealing with this myself so I know how much you may be missing your Mum. Love and strength to you.

    Hello,
    My sincere condolences to you. I absolutely know how you are feeling as my own Mum died twelve weeks ago having had Alzheimer's Disease for over ten years and lived with us in our home for the majority of that time
    My feelings of grief, loss and loneliness have completely taken me by surprise despite having the most amazing husband and three wonderful grown up children.
    I think just take one day at a time and hopefully we can both come to terms with our loss. With my love to you x
