The Parent Lottery

My mother, Agnes M. Peace, died Wednesday night. Her much loved children John, Kathy and Mary carried the burden of caring for her at the end of her life. I freely tell people that my siblings and I hit the parent lottery. Had it not been for my mother and father I would not have survived my childhood. They were pillars of strength when I was going through the medical mill as a child.  They supported me in a way that forever changed my life. The world has lost two great people. I am just heartbroken. Mourning the death of a parent is terrible.

So very sorry for your loss. I have dreaded the thought of losing my parents ever since I have been able to think... I hope you have friends and family to soothe and comfort you, and we are sending positive vibes from our side of the world.

Genuinely sorry for your loss, William. I, too, had parents from Heaven and without them would not have survived - thy both died in the 1980s and I still miss them.

Stay strong - the pain will dull, if not go away.

Cheers from Downunder

I hear how much she meant to you, and it gives me some notion of the loss you are feeling now. May her memory be for a blessing, and may your grief be gentle, deep, and complete.
