Sorry for your loss. No matter the age it’s like your a kid again, the feeling of loss makes you feel like a child again. It makes no difference or less painful that others have had the same loss. Having only weeks ago been though the same loss I can tell you the hurt gets easier. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself with stress illness as well. Chest pain and neck pain, head ache’s wouldn’t be uncommon. Focus on work and family it helps.
Dr. Laura is going back to the phones now!
good luck and god bless.

Sorry to hear this Rob. Hope your family is doing well despite the circumstances. Didn't know u had 8 siblings, wow.

I have just 1, and its amazing how much they require. My dad was 1 of 7. I don't know how they did it back in the day when large families were much more common.

Very very sorry for your precious loss, Rob.

Unfortunately, I have come to realize long ago that none of us are going to get out of here alive. And, hopefully the "other side" will be our true reward.

The universe is such a strange and awe inspiring place. Makes you wonder what exactly there is.

I regret not taking more time with her while she was alive. I wish I would have bought her healthy food and provided better for her. Take time with your aging parents and those you love. I think we all underestimate the brevity of life.

Rob hang in there this sounds really tough I am lost for words.

I also feel like a jerk for posting threads about rugs past couple days completely oblivious to this.

Thank you for your influence, Rob. I appreciate it.

Thinking of you Rob,

Please take care of yourself. I know it’s tuff but try be the strongest person at her funeral. I know she would have appreciated everything you have done the same way you appreciate what she has done.

And your your younger sister is an angle.

Thinking of you.

Most of us think that we will not die, never think of death and not realizing this where we don't visit our loved ones and suddenly they are gone.

I pray that the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will comfort you and your family.
Its times like this when having the surity of hope and joy we find in Christ is the most real to us.

She looks like a lovely woman, and a strong one. My sympathies to you and yours, and you're right - there's never a time when we're ready to lose a parent.
