@Schrodingers-Car:  She died holding the hand of someone she loved. Many die alone and broken.

You all gave her dignity in death. 

May she rest in peace.

BIG HUGS to you.

I work in Hospice care- so I know what an honor and privilage it is to be with someone as they pass from this life.  I am sorry for your loss, but dementia is an awful disease and you can take some comfort in the fact that she no longer suffers.  Take care of yourself!

I am so sorry for your loss. You were with her when she needed somebody the most, and that’s a big thing. It’s a privilege, and something that you’ll be able to hold on to in the future.

@Schrodingers-Car:  My heart goes out to you and your family. I think in situations like this people to a certain extent choose when to go. Your MIL must have felt very comfortable with you there and made her decision. She may have also choosen to wait until her sons weren’t there because she thought it would be too difficult for them, so I don’t think you should feel sad that they weren’t able to be with her.

@Schrodingers-Car:  So sorry for your loss, I’m sure it’s hard for you to have it all sink in. What a wonderful family she had.
