Thank you, Tobi. It's been a while since I've been on SF. I am grateful to say that I am moving through this. Time does help heal. It is a common experience for an adult to witness the passing of an elderly parent. Yet it still hurts. But I am grateful that I am healing and integrating and moving into this new world without a Mom (or Dad) in physical form. I will work on continuing to lift the sorrow so I can be open and connect with them spiritually.
