Rindy, I'm so sorry to see this topic. And I'm sorry that my laziness kept from from being here for you sooner. I'm fortunate to still have both of my parents, but a friend of mine recently lost her father to a sudden heart-attack (he was only a year older than me!). An only child, she was left with wrapping up his business in two fields (accountant and nurse), clean up his condo for sale, deal with relatives, etc. Seems to me that the tragedy isn't always just (!) the death, but the grief and difficult work that follows that death. I hope that you are getting a lot of support from your local friends and family, and that you've been able to take some comfort in the sincere good wishes sent to you by the members here.
Love and hugs to you and your family!
