Well here I am in the final forum and it seems very unreal. Mum passed away peacefully yesterday. Every time I pass her bedroom I start to go in and check on her then realise she isn’t there. I’ve been ringing friends and relations today to give them the news so at least that has given me something to do. Next week I will go to register the death, contact the solicitor and start on the funeral arrangements. It seems my main purpose in life has suddenly been taken away but I suppose that’s only natural when looking after Mum has taken up nearly all my time for the last few years.
