I'm sorry for your loss and I'm sorry for the emotional turmoil in the family that you have to deal with. The death of a parent is awfully hard.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

Partduex, my sincere condolences. I lost my father today as well. 6:00 PM. My family is so fortunate that we had none of the drama that yours has been through. I wish I could offer more than my prayers.

Viking, sorry to hear about losing your father.

What made my situation so unbelievably bad were the three (four including mom), spinning themselves totally out of control.

Mom took my wife and I aside last Christmas (or thanksgiving, don't recall which) and she reiterated her end of life wishes, which are also written. Then took my wife aside separately and told her to make sure I stood strong and firm. Premonition?

The irony of the whole thing, the enablers that were the likely cause of her death, were the ones that were fighting the following of her end of life desires. You likely killed her and now you want to keep her alive on machines? That's just messed up. I've had to deal with my own emotions of not speaking to her in almost two months, finding out she been in the hospital for 12 days and not being told about it, having to legally FORCE her end of life decisions, all at the same time.

About a week before she finally passed, both my wife and I had extremely vivid dreams about mom. I don't normally remember dreams, but the detail of mine was phenomenal. I was working in the yard and a little girl got out of car that was driven by what looked like her mother. Little girl came up to me and asked why I wasn't helping my mom get better like I did before. I told her that I found out too late she was in trouble, and there was nothing else that could be done to help her. She thanked me, got in the car and left. What seemed so strange to me, was I knew I was making the right decisions, they were not easy, but they were right.

as a pastor i know there are no magic words to bring comfort. This is a time for mourning. Please do not dwell on the "others" and their negative impact on your Mom or what has happened.

Its done. Take time to mourn. Put up some boundaries. Dont let bitterness take hold of you..

That minister that called them evil could have been me. I am blunt when i i see stuff and tell it like it is..

Know that the Lord is also called the Comforter. Im praying for you..

Blessings and rest
Brother Frankie

So sorry to hear of your loss. Yes, this sounds like a mess but as others have said, try to keep a level head and get a good lawyer.

I just lost my mom too, on Aug. 10.. I wish I could offer some insight, but im going though the same (less the legal mess, Its hard enough just dealing with the loss)..
Im still in my 20's, both my parents have passed and it sucks....

The only comfort I have is, they would have suffered in life, so Im glad they passed painlessly...

Feel free to PM me if you wanna talk...
...... I suffer from a very rare genetic defect that causes me to be sympathetic toward the International cause. There is no cure.
