Mom is doing really well. Of course she's upset, but she's taking care of herself the best she can. I don't think I need to worry about her much, so that's a plus. Thank you all for dropping the positive vibes, I knew I could count on you. :)

Condolences to you and your mom. My half-sister passed away on Wednesday. Sadly the funeral is in NJ and I’m in Toronto. In the Jewish faith funerals occur very quickly so I wasn’t able to make it. So I personally share grief with you at this time.

Sad to hear. Had an Aunt that went through something similar. Her husband died and a few months later a neighbour expressed his interest in her. They got dating. Were just good company for each other. Then he was told he had cancer. He lived a few more months. It was my Aunt I felt more sorry for. It can take a lot to want to move on after a loved one passes way. But she did. Then number two passes away. Age does come into this one. I wouldn't exactly class the second person as young. That stage were anything could happen to a person. I think, with your mother, you can only be there for her, if she needs somebody. Is just life come the end of the day. If she was to meet another person the same thing wouldn't have to happen again. But trying to get them to see it this way is hard. My Aunt stayed single after that. One loss is hard enough. Two can be enough. All about listening to how she is thinking and agreeing with her if she doesn't want to meet anybody else. Can depend on the age as well. Older person might not want to meet a third person. That was the case with my Aunt.

Oh my goodness, just came across the entire feed this morning and wasn’t expecting that at all! I’m so so sorry for your loss, I can’t imagine how unbelievably difficult it must be for you at the moment. Take strength in the fact that his suffering wasn’t prolonged and he’s now in a pain free place. Your mum sounds like an absolute warrior. I’m keeping both you and her in my thoughts and prayers, and sending all my love and condolences x
