    Have you ever spent the last months or weeks with a loved one whose death was imminent?

    One thing is for certain. We will all leave this planet. The last months spent with someone who is close to death can be a time of healing...perhaps healing a shattered relationship. It can also be a time to give back to that loved one and a time to find peace. You will not regret time spent in this way.

    Absolutely!  Mom and Dad.  Heartwrenching but at least I got to tell them I loved them and thank you for everything they did for all of us.  I miss them terribly.

    Yes. My lovely and very much loved husband died 8 years ago. It was the most devastating thing I could ever imagine. I felt I was dying with him. Before he died I thought I had grieved as much as I was capable of, but I was so very wrong on that one.

    Yes!  Both of my parents are passed away!  Mother had alzheimer's and several strokes and she was bedridden for the last two years of her life!  It was very hard to see her suffer this way!  She and I were always very close but she was like a different person when she started getting alzheimer's. She passed away in 1997.  Daddy, on the other hand, passed away of a heart attack in 1985.  I missed them both terribly and there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about them!

    Both of mine are too...four years apart and I am so thankful that I was there so I would never have to ''shoulda' , woulda' , coudla' all of the things I wished i could have done. It has been 20 years and I still miss them every day. There is so much I would like to share. But, I still do share, I know they hear me.

    Yes. My dad had cancer for many years and when I was 13 he finally passed away. He chose to stay at home instead of being in the hospital lonely. The tumor was in his neck wrapped around arteries so it was inoperable and it got to a point where he wasn't able to eat for at least a month. It was probably the hardest thing I've ever had to witness.
