    Mom Died

    After a long bout with dementia that was accelerated by a broken hip, mom passed away peacefully at a hospice center here in Asheville, NC. I have touched on her troubles in a few posts this year and received such warm and heart-felt replies from forum members. Thank you and God bless. John

    Very hard to hear that brother.... Heartfelt condolences and I've said a prayer for her soul and for your family.

    May you have very fond memories and that she'll live on in your hearts.

    God Bless You.

    My condolences, sorry for your loss
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    I'm truly sorry for your loss. My prayers are going out for you and your family.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    My mother is in the last stages of demetia and today she did not know me or where she was.

    I will be praying for you and your family.

    Please remember the situation in my family.

    I'm sorry and will pray for you and your family. Searcher 45 the same goes for you and your family.
    There are people who touch our lives that we will carry fond memories and life lessons with forever. May we never take these people or our time with them for granted.
    For a man interested only in passin' through, he suddenly found himself entangled in a deadly struggle….

    I'll pray for you both and for your Moms.

    I lost my dad a couple years ago, and my wife's mother has stage 4 breast cancer now.

    It is my belief that we will all meet again in Heaven, where the ills of this world will no longer be present. That is my wish for you and yours.

    Absolutely Searcher45. It's a tough thing to deal with. Very frustrating... Praying for your family as well.
