    My lovely mum passed away today. She was the most wonderful mother and I love her so much. Three and a half years of being on this dementia path with her has ended and she is free and at peace.

    It has been such an emotional journey seeing her change from an independent happy go lucky lady. I've been so lucky that she always remained the gentlest person with the sweetest nature, dementia didn't alter that.

    At 92 she'shad a lovely life and family and I'm glad she's free of illness now.

    I can't thank everone enough on TP for posting all your experiences. It has been an amazing help for me for all the challenges dementia posed when I felt frightened and overwhelmed by it.

    Thank you and best wishes to all of you

    Sweet, my thoughts will be with you and your family as you come to terms with the loss of your lovely Mum. So pleased she is now at peace, and will suffer no more

    Your post has really touched me. Your Mum could be my Mum. She is also 92, and although she is approaching the end of her life, she is still the sweetest, kindest person you could wish for. When I visit this afternoon I will give her a hug as I think of you and your Mum.

    Thank you for posting.

    So sorry to hear your sad news. My mum is 94 just come to live with us and she has always been such a sweet natured, agreeable lady. I've only heard stories of how dementia turns people into aggressive and disagreeable individuals. This was my dread, but so nice to hear that this isn't always the case. Thank you for the hope your message has given me. Peegee
