My sympathies, mate. Don't feel ashamed if you catch yourself thinking it's a relief, because, really, it is in many ways. You can mourn properly now, and life can find some sort of balance again. You are lucky to have family around you, and you all need to look after each other now.

Thanks all. I feel good that I have done everything I could to keep her safe since she started getting poorly in 2002. Twenty years I have had the worry about both my parents. My father passed in 2012 after a terrible 10 years. I could concentrate on my Mum after that. I moved heaven and earth to keep her in the familiar surroundings of the home she had lived in since 1969.

She died peacefuĺy at home with family around her. That is all I wished for her final time in this life.it's still raw and I have cried so much I am surprised I have any tears left. This leaves a big hole in my life. I have three sisters but they left 90% of it to me. I don't regret having put all that time, effort and mental anguish in. Maybe I can move on now and rid myself of the mental problems I have had for the last 20 years of my life. I hope so and I'm sure mum would want me to.
