She's at peace now.

Take time to grieve and look after yourself. Then you must learn to live again - hopefully you and your brother will also help each other through .

Sam I have quietly followed your post the last few weeks, but I had to write to offer my condolences. You have been a wonderful daughter and your mum could not have asked for more, you and your brother and doggy have provided your mum with all that love and support through the worst of times. I hope I have the same strength when the time comes with my OH. Much love to you and all the family at this sad time, your mum is finally at peace, I hope you manage to find some peace now too. Xxx

I know we are all impressed by your dedication and faithful care of your mum. You are definitely someone I would want on my team. Please be kind to yourself as much as possible.

Oh Sam, I'm so sorry. I sat down to eat lunch and catch up with everything on TP. I literally stopped chewing as I read your last post. I know you will be strong through this next path you are on. Your strength has gotten you this far, it can carry you further. Then as everyone says, it's time to take care of yourself. Sympathy hugs are channeling over!

A fabulous daughter, who I've had the pleasure to meet :)

A person who fought ' tooth and nail ' for her lovely mum.

I'm glad your mum is finally at peace and away from this cruel disease x

Take time to heal, slowly slowly, heart felt thoughts from me xx

I’m walking around trying to work out what I should be doing. I’m still talking quietly @love.dad.but..

I wanted her pain to stop. Now it has. We will manage, it’s just paperwork & things. It’s funny how some people grab at money, I don’t think I really care for it these days.

I did what I set out to do, it drove me crazy at times, but I’ve grown as a person & met some amazing people along the way, thank you

Oh Sam, on the one hand I am so sorry to read your news, on the other I am glad that your mum's suffering is over. You have been amazing throughout and I for one have learned so much from you and your mum's journey. I hope now that you rest and know that we are all still here for you in the coming hours, days, weeks and beyond. Sending you all huge hugs, and should you ever get to Cornwall, I don't have a driveway but I will find one xxx

Oh Sam, I have only got back home and thought I would just check your thread ...

Your Mum is out of pain now, and has joined your Dad - seems as though he has been waiting for her to be with him.

My love to you, your brother and the rest of your family
