@arreyprotus, What an absolutely beautiful woman your mother was in this announcement and even through her last weeks of her illness. She was far too young to leave your family but as in this photograph, her beautifully kind and peaceful countenance shined through. I am especially touched by the phrases, "sunrise" and "sunset". Had not known until now that you and your brothers had lost both parents within two years.

I would hope to comfort you by telling you that my son-in-law experienced the deaths of both his parents at age 18 years. He was an only child and I asked him once how he managed to get through the grief and go on to work his way through college despite the grief and hardship. His response to me was, "It is not so much the tragedies that happen to you but how you decide to handle them that determines what your future can hold". I was so touched by his belief.

Arreyprotus, you have demonstrated to your many friends at Mayo Connect, as well as your family, throughout this very sad and trying time how strong you are and how your faith will carry you forward into a future filled with goals met. Like my son in law, your bravery and determination will continue to help and influence others as you grow past these initial stages of grief. Will you and your brothers continue living where you are? Hoping you will continue to stay in touch here and letting us know how you are doing. Sincerely

@arreyprotus, Had been thinking of you and meaning to inquire. Alas, instead of writing, I get easily sidetracked. Glad you posted an update so we could continue our cyber friendship. When you "had to move on the people that give you triff to work", are you writing that you and your brothers had to move where you were living? or that the people that gave you trips to work, are no longer showing you friendship or no longer living? I suffered a slight stroke a few years ago and am doing incredibly well now however, I some times have more trouble understanding what is written. A hearing loss, not caused by the stroke but instead by aging and also playing music far too loudly as a teenager and young adult also makes it harder for me to hear on the phone and sometimes I don't hear everything the other person is saying.

I think it only understandable that you are feeling lonely now. And something I imagine others who have lost a loved one also have experienced is that after all of the concentration and hard work and constant care for the loved one, when that person dies, we also feel an additional loneliness from having our routines again abruptly change. The sudden lack of taking care of the other person is no longer needed and all the energy and effort we were using around the clock to help them is suddenly stopped and we are left with that void as well. Hope you'll keep posting how things are going for you and sending you cyber hugs during this time of grief.
