    Mum died suddenly on Sunday. She collapsed in her nursing home & was
    taken by ambulance to Glan Clwyd hospital near Rhyl, with one of her carers.
    After I had waited in accident & emergency for half an hour or so I was
    taken to a private room to be told that she had died.
    The coroner rang today to say she'd had a heart attack....coroner involved as
    it was a sudden death & she had last been seen by her GP over two weeks
    ago. He had wanted to stop mum's Aricept but my sister had persuaded him not
    to. He did however stop her daily injections for a clot she had on her abdomen...
    she had been having these for six months.
    Mum was diagnosed with AD in 2001, although we knew she hadn't been quite
    'right' for a couple of years before that.
    Reading the sympathy cards from family & friends brings me to tears.
    Mum was 84.

    Hello asaltydog

    So sorry to hear that your Mum has died. I can understand your distress that it was so sudden, but it may be a blessing in disguise. The heart attack means that she (and you) will be spared the distress of the final stages of AD.

    You probably won't be able to see it like that at the moment, but it may help you later.

    You may also treasure the sympathy cards later, they show that your Mum was loved.

    Love,

    Dear Wendy and Asaltydog,
    My heart goes out to both of you, I lost Mum and Dad last year so I do know what you are going through. I still read the card I was sent and it still brings me to tears.
    Love to you both

    Cards

    My Dad died just before Christmas, so the Christmas cards were replaced with condolence cards. My Mum was over-whelmed with them, and has now got a special box to store them all in. So many people penned kind words of sympathy and support, and they weren't necessarily close friends, some we didn't really know that well. I have always thought that if I didn't know someone very well then it would not be 'my place' (sorry I didn't word that particulary well!) to offer sympathy. But knowing what I know now, I will start sending cards, and if possible go out of my way to offer verbal condolences-because it does make a big difference at such a sad time.

    So may I offer my sincere condolences to you and your family

    Take care of each other at this time

    Sweet Pea x

    My thoughts are with you and your family. The cards are hard to read but contain some wonderful words. We still have an exert from one with a photo of Dad.

    The loss of Aunty quite suddely before Christmas co-incided with listening to a new CD I had been given by Angelis. There is one particular track which I had played at her funeral which contains these words:

    Words, Words are not enough
    For me to say how much I miss you
    You, flew away too soon
    I feel so alone not with you

    (Chorus)
    But when I close my eyes
    Every night
    I hear your voice like an angel
    And you're here again by my side
    I swear I hear your words
    They sing through me
    And I'm back where I belong
    You are here even though you are gone

    (Verse 2)
    You're here, everywhere I go
    Deep inside my heart forever
    And one, one sweet day I know
    We will be back together

    It still brings tears but also some comfort.

    Kriss
