    Dagwood.... I'm really sorry to hear about your mom. I'm also really, really sorry that you were the one to find her - that had to be so hard. Hopefully it's some comfort to know that she went peacefully in her sleep. Hugs and deepest sympathy....wishing you strength and peace.

    Dagwood, I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine how upsetting and unsettling it was for you to discover your mom had passed, especially if she had not been ill. Sending hugs and prayers and may your mother rest peacefully.

    Dagwood, please accept my condolences as well.

    The thing I remember most about your post was that you drove there because no one had heard from her. I've had to make a similar drive to check on the welfare of a family member, and it was the longest drive ever. My heart really goes out to you.

    We at FoRT are here for you - lots of thoughts and prayers for you going up.

    Dagwood...yes, you will need to continue to be the strong one until the process of caring for the dead is complete. Then, please find the tears and anger and hurt and grieve. I am so sorry you were the one to find her. I called the police department when I couldn't get a neighbor to answer and they found her. I felt guilt that I hadn't done anything earlier, but I didn't have a key.

    Everyone remember that the police departments can do welfare checks if you are unable to do so yourself.

    Hugs

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Thanks, everyone. It still doesn't seem real. I have a meeting with the mortuary tomorrow and then I am going to her house to get her financial/trust papers together to get this all started. I know I will get through this but I just wish there was someone else to do this and just tell me where to be and what to sign. Sometimes I hate being the adult.

    So very sorry, Dagwood. Of course you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I've lost my husband and son this year and the grief can be overwhelming. Perhaps it's a blessing that you will have to do 'what needs doing' to keep you busy until you have time to grieve. It does get better. (((Hugs)))
