20. Ah, that's so sad.
A lot of doctors won't speak the truth about Death because it is seen as the ultimate failure of the medical community...instead of something natural and inevitable for all of us.

I am glad your Dad is out of his pain and suffering. Again, I wish you Peace.

Your mom will go through her own journey with the grieving process, as will you. There's no "right" or "wrong" way to do it. I encourage you to explore the bereavement support available to you through your local hospice organization. :hug:

Hang in there.
