My mother died on Saturday, 13 Jan 2018. She was 89 and had suffered from Alzheimer's disease for four years. I was with her when she breathed her last but wasn't prepared for the passing.

RIP Thyra E. Weekes, Mom.

Randy

Hi Randy,

I don't think anyone is ever prepared. Being with her was everything you could do.

My condolences Randy.

Deepest sympathy Randy. Did your mother have a favourite song or artist? Was music a part of her life? I am glad you were able to be with her; for her sake and for yours. stay strong.

My condolences Randy. My thoughts are with you. In Belgium sometimes we say that we are sharing your feelings. In 2015 i lost my three remaining elders (i had four because of divorce when i was a kid.) All of them live on in my memories so i know for a fact that your Mom will remain in your hearth.

Thank you all for your condolences. I'm not a social media user; this forum is about the only online "community" I consider myself a member of, and I must admit that it's a fairly casual membership for me. But it seemed a natural thing for me to post here about this loss and I appreciate your responses.

Randy

My sincerest of condolences to you and your family. My mother is also 89 years of age now and afflicted with this disease.

60's Guy,

It's a cruel condition. If I am granted longevity, I hope that I will still have enough focus to read a book, play the guitar, paint in oils, etc. I accept the current physical decline of my body (I'm a geezer) but I dread the prospect of losing cognitive function.

My best wishes to your Mom and to you.

Randy
