I’m so sorry to hear Amy passed away. She went through a tough battle. You always hear that time heals the heart. Today is the 5th anniversary of my mother’s death and yes it does get better but I still can’t get through this day without some tears. After my father passed away when all the family was gone I was worried about how my Mom would cope so I offered to go visit but my Mom said no. She said she needed time by herself to really grieve and cry. Give yourself that time when you don’t have to be the brave and strong one. I think the caregivers have the toughest job in this journey.
