My sister lives near mum and has been her main support and I live 45 mins away and do my best to support her. Our other sister lives in London and it took her 6 hours to join us today, half an hour too late to say her goodbyes, which was a pity for her. We will spend the next few days together, sorting out arrangements. We have ten children between us and six grandchildren, so there is a big family now. I guess she definitely lives on.

Tia - we already had to do the clear out when dad died and mum went into care with dementia. We had to sell their home to pay for the care home fees. I now want to remember them both from happier times. Dementia is a cruel illness and it has definitely been the long goodbye.

Marmo. Im so sorry to hear about your Mum. At least you were with her to the end and she is now at peace. As you say, dementia is a cruel illness.
Youve got a busy time ahead unfortunately but sometimes its being busy that will get you through those first few days when you cant really get to grips with the fact that she's gone.
You will always have your memories and they are priceless and at least you have your sisters to share them with.
Take care lovey.
