Sigh, it was a year today that Mum passed away, not something you can forget and less so at this time of year. You can't help remember that last Christmas Day you were rushing to and from hospital.
Of course its MUCH harder for dad. You "know" you will outlive your parents, whereas he always expected to go first (high blood pressure and diabetes) and they were married 55 years and known each other for 61. And of course he finds the house empty.
Someone asked me last night how I coped, well I just think of how she was at the end and I know she never wanted that.
I'm going to have dinner with Dad tonight and of course I'm thinking about Mum.
