Last August 3rd we lost our Mother to cancer. Now, this past week, November 18, we have lost our Father to dementia. The funeral is over and we are home now. After a week of family all around me and preparations to make it is just TOO quiet and I think I'm going to lose my mind. After my Mom died we went to our campsite where we have lots of friends and had lots of people around us. Now we are just home and I feel lost. I know next week we will start working on the will and all that the estate entails and that will keep me busy but until then I have to go through many hours of pain and loneliness. How do people handle this? I don't think my father's passing has really hit me yet. As he was dying I laid my head on his chest to give him a hug. His breathing was very slow at this point. My siblings said to check again and listen for a heartbeat this time and I did and there was none. I truely believe that I heard my Father's final heartbeat. What an honour. He was a generous, kind-hearted humerous man who was loved by all who knew him and he will be dearly missed by all. Any suggestions on how to get through this lonely time would be greatly appreciated. I have already received so much from becoming a member of DS. Thank you all so much. Cath

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
