My Mum has Altzheimers diagnosed 6 years ago. My Dad passed away November 2014. They were married for 71years. We took her to funeral after breaking the news to her. She cried for a short while and then said "Oh well life has to go on". Then it was forgotten of course and she constantly asks where he is, why does he not come to see her etc. I usually say he's sleeping or she will ask if he is at work and I answer yes. How do others deal with this. She gets so terribly upset and it breaks my heart.
