    Very sorry to hear that, Gerard. The loss of a parent is devastating. My own mammy passed away earlier this year and I know how heartbreaking it is. For me, it was the final act of growing up (at 50+) but also the most difficult. Take comfort from the many great memories you must have and the love you shared.

    Look after yourself mentally and physically because there can be a physical side to grief which can take you by surprise. It will take time to feel better and it's important that you give yourself time to come to terms with your loss. Take care.

    If it’s any help, was once told that people don’t last forever but memories do......it’s about what we had, not what we have no more. My mum and dad were married 43 years but lost them in 7 short weeks....I feel your pain. Hail hail.

    It's a sad time in everyone's life, death is horrible and unforgiving.

    Made all the more the worse when it involves our parents, the people we looked up to and raised us, who, for some mad reason think it will never happen to them.

    It's hard to remember the good when they go and get lost in sorrow, but sounds like your mum raised a top lad who taught him well to do just that and be proud.

    RIP Mrs Gerard 1888.

    Sorry for your loss mate.

    Lost my mum in november last year and i've never been the same since. Travelling home every other weekend or random day off to help my sister and brother empty her house is brutal.

    All the best to you!

    I don't think we are ever really the same again following the loss of a parent. Daddy died a couple of years before mammy and that was really tough as we were very close. We lived near to my parents and called in most days. However, there is something particularly devastating about the loss of your second parent, truly awful. At random times the enormity of it just hits you and overwhelms you. I can't offer any advice, it'll be raw for a while. Just be grateful for all that they gave you and take courage from it each day, particularly the really tough ones. All the best.
