Thank you orthicon
I'm sorry for your loss.
The only think I can say, and you may already be doing this, is document your parent's lives. Use your journalistic skills write the stories of their lives. Their children, grandchildren, even great-grandchildren may truly treasure those stories. There is usually one geneologist per generation or so in a family. My Dad's Mother, who died before I was born, had the genealogy bug. My Mother's cousin had the geneaolgy bug. I have the bug. You don't have to have the genealogy bug, but you can add your parent's story, your and your siblings's story, your children's story to the history of your family. It's all valuable. Have it there for the decendents who want to pick up with it and run.
I am fortunate to have spent Mother's Day with my Mother. I am fortunate that I still have both of my parents. Not long ago, I spent nearly two weeks as my Mother's sole caretaker, to give my father a respite. I've always appreciated the work he does, but I now value his dedication even more. My Mother tried some different types of foods and was a really good sport about it. We watched some different tv programs, some of which she liked, some of which she didn't. We talked, we laughed, we had a great time.
I encourage everyone who has the opportunity to embrace the time they have with loved ones.

God Bless both of you and yours
I neglected to read this when it was first posted orthicon, I apologize.
I remember Tex and I shared our thoughts when our Dad(s) passed away. It, the hurt, never goes away. Thank God I still have my Mom, sort of, she's out of it in a nursing home, and it breaks my heart.
Stay strong guys. And remember, remember, remember.
