    Please know you are in our prayers as you go through this last journey with your mom. I hope you take comfort and peace in knowing you were there and did everything you could to help take of your mom and dad both. I know how difficult these situations can be. May God bless and be with you and watch over your dad in this difficult time . I will be making a donation to the foundation for dementia in her name.

    and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
    The former things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4)
