Lots of hugs for Dove. I'm glad he was peaceful at the end. I don't envy you the task of telling your mum. With my MIL, we didn't tell her things at all like that during the last three years, she just didn't understand. When her sister in law died, and the family house was sold, and her husbands share finally came to the family, she wouldnt have understood, so we didnt tell her. Her world had contracted to her house, her children, two of which she didnt recognise, and a dedicated team of carers.
Alzheimer's is such a cruel disease.
