I take my hat off to you for providing them with love and care in the twilight of their lives. That is a very special thing to do. I hope you can now enjoy special time together - just you two.


I too looked after my parents until they died. The aftermath is strange. I think this is because you can let go of the tension and yet you don't quite know what to replace it with. Take care of yourselves and remember that grief has no time limit you are allowed to grieve for as long as it takes.
We'll be here when you are ready to come back


Oh Alexa, such sad news, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You looked after him so well for so long and it is going to seem very strange for quite some time. Sending a big blog hug to you x


Alexa, my deepest sympathies. You and your parents have been blessed with such a special relationship thanks to your loving care over these many years. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers in the days ahead as you celebrate your dad's life, and adjust to the new rhythms of just the two of you.


Oh Alexa, you have my sincerest sympathy on the loss of your Dad. I will keep you and your husband in my prayers. Consider yourself hugged.


So sorry to read your sad news Alexa. My thoughts are with you at this poignant time. Take care. xx

Oh Alexa, my heart is so very sad for you and yours. I'm sending you love and hugs and please know that I have you all in my thoughts and prayers.


Alexa, I didn't see your 2011 your beautifuly, heartfelt post, so I'm glad you shared it again. I'm sad for you because I know you are grieving, but I do hope you and Himself take comfort in the support you provided to both your parents during their senior years. Peace to you...


So sorry to hear of your loss, but good that you were able to be there for your parents when they needed you and be able to have those times together. I pray for peace and comfort in your grief and hope that your thanksgiving service is a rich time of remembrance. Take care and best wishes for the season.


Keeping you in my thoughts & prayers. Sending my condolences & sympathies to you & the family.


I am so sorry for your loss Alexa, and so sorry that I'm late getting here to read about it. As always you put things so eloquently and I can feel the grief, loneliness, and confusion in your words. My sincerest sympathies and best wishes as you begin to navigate your new normal.
