I'm so sorry, Metina. Both my mom and dad had cancer but died before the suffering became too great. I don't know if I could've handled it if they had lingered for a long time. Alzheimer's is such an unfair disease. It robs you of your loved one long before they are actually gone.

My prayers are with you... My grandma has something that seems like dementia but her and her husband don't want to do tests for fear that it really is dementia... It's an awful disease...

Add me to the list of those sincerely sorry for your loss. It runs in my family too, and my MIL just died at Thanksgiving from it.
Forgive me, but I can't help but tell you how blessed you were to have such a fine mother that you loved so dearly...not all of us have parents for whom we grieve.

Deepest sympathy to you and all your family.
My mum passed away in 2000 and to this day she is still 'around', every time I cook from her reciepe book, do something 'just like your mother did' or my children do something "Gran" would have approved of. Your mother is with you forever just keep the good memories alive.

My thoughts are with you and your family, Metina. I'm so sorry. I watched my mom lose her grandmother to Alzheimer's many years ago, and I have a feeling the first tendrils of it may be creeping towards my own mother.

Take care of yourself and thank you so much for your generosity in offering your help and experience to others.

So sorry to hear of your loss Metina. Loosing a parents cuts deeply and the pain is so strong. I hope you have lots of love and support surrounding you and you can find some comfort from your online family here.

I watched my Mum suffer with cancer before loosing her and lost my Dad suddenly and unexpactantly. I can't imagine the heartbreak of Alzheimers. ((hugs from across the seas))

So sorry Metina. My grandfather on my mother's side died from that just after my 16th birthday. Now my grandfather on my dad's side is having the same problems. He can't remember things he did 3 minutes ago, and then he gets angry about it. My parents don't really think he'll make it to next Christmas, so I know a lot about what you're going through. Wishing you strength in the tought times ahead.

Thanks so much guys! The service was yesterday and I must say it is a big relief. I have decided the best way to honor my mother is to emulate her. She was the kindest person I ever knew. Again, if anyone is dealing with this, I am more than happy to be a sounding board.

My condolences to you Metina. Alzheimers has touched my family, with both paternal grandparents succumbing to the disease.

I think it is lovely to honor your mom by emulating her kindness.

My condolences as well Metina...

Alzeihmer's robbed me of my grandmother last year, though she had been "gone" for about five years before that. That was the hardest part, seeing her but knowing that it wasn't really "her". It's like an ongoing greiving process that didn't really start to heal untill she passed on... (I know that sounds awful but it's the only way I know how to describe it)

So sorry for your great loss, Metina. You are very blessed to be have had such a lovely, kind mother. And you are such a blessing to others... offering to be a support system to others going through similar situation while you yourself are grieving. Proverbs 11:25 says, "A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed"

May you prosper and be refreshed, dear lady.

Doing really well actually. Working like mad to get the new shop up. It really is kind of a relief. I'm not constantly feeling bad that she is in a facility IYKWIM.
