    Hi all
    we buried Mum yesterday and after the long struggle before she left us, I feel lost and have a great big hole without her.
    I wish there was something more I could have done
    its so hard without her (Mum was 71 - lewy body dementia)
    I wish I could see her just for 10 more minutes
    thanks all
    Diane x

    Would that all of us be granted just 10 more minutes.

    That was always my wish when my lovely husband was taken from me some twelve years ago.................now I contemplate my 'future' with dear Lionel.

    Take care now, look after yourself, and continue to do what Mum would have wished. Love,

    I have some idea how you feel Diane. It's 7 weeks now since my dad died. I still feel quite lost, but things start to change. I'd love 10 minutes with him as he was before lewy body and before he became deaf. Take your time .... be kind to yourself ...... you're bound to feel sad and exhausted after all this.

    Hi,
    I know how you feel. Since Dad has gone I miss him dreadfully. I cant delete a message on my phone that I sent to him a few days after he died telling him how much I miss and love him!....

    So...huge hug to you. Just take each day as it comes.
