    My mom died after a stroke back in June 2020 at the age of 88. I got to spend her last roughly 54 hours in a room with her at the nursing home. I spoke to her, sang to her, and tried to make sure she was as comfortable as possible. After she died I got busy letting family and others know, planning the funeral, etc. I've gone over the last day, wondering if I could have done something more for her. At first I got very focused on my work. Now I just want to sleep all the time. It seems like my mom has been gone for ages, although I was in touch with her almost every day until 4 months ago. There is no one who talks about her. We couldn't do a memorial service due to COVID. The funeral was just graveside with 6 of us total, and was over very quickly. I guess it just feels like her life should mean more than that.
