what

Just got home from Dad's house, I know everyone experiences death of a family member in their lives but this has been the worst day of my three year old life. We almost never got Dad to leave Mother where they could close the casket. He repeats over and over "I don't know how I can go on without her". I am looked to be the strong leader since I am the oldest but between the pain in my legs and the headache and dizziness I just can't fill the roll.
Next week if there is still interest in this and a coulple of other active threads I will get back to cars and not be dumping all my problems on my forum friends.

I'm so sorry Garrell, oh my God, I am so sorry. I feel for your dad, I can't imagine life without my wife. I will love her even more today.

My prayers go out to you guys.

what

When Dad was in the hospital for nine days s few weeks ago and we brought Mother here to our home for twelve days, that was the longest they had been apart or the only time they had been apart in over 65 years. Dad just keeps repeating over and over "What am I going to do without her".
With my total memory loss prior to mid 2009 this is the worst exeperience of my life, yesterday and last night was a nightmare.
It is great to hear from you Brian, thanks for the sentiments.

we deal with things like this using the info we have absorbed thru our lives. To only have a few years info, holy crap that must be hard. Hang in there, you will have a rough time but you will get thru it just like you did with your own illness. Hang in there,

Garrell,

My condolences on the loss of your Mother. May she rest in peace. I am very sorry for not having seen this earlier. You, your Father and the family are in my prayers. May God give you all the strength to pull through from this and may you find the support within each other to go on. People will leave us one day, and we will leave others. But we will all see each other again soon enough...

If you ever need to get your mind off things, well it seems you've made quite a few friends here who will be happy to help ya do just that ...

Again, please accept my deepest sympathies. Hang it there..

It is a strange feeling but I do feel each of you are truly friends and I look forward to hearing from you whenever I can come up with a thread or post worthy of your response. I will get by but please remember my Dad in your thoughts and prayers.

what

Sorry all my special friends for not getting back to you sooner, you don'i know how much your thoughts, prayers and words of sentiment have been to me. I feel so helpless to not know how to help my Dad cope but there is only one that can.
Don't let my problems damper any post you want to make, remember from my story about my miraculos survival and on going recovery.
My survival and ongoing recovery is through God, my Wife and my love of cars

Garrell

God Bless Garrell, hang in there and support your dad. You can re-direct your grief into your love of your mom and help him.
