My mother lost her younger sister a few years ago (at age 76) and now her older brother died last week at age 84. There were just the 3 of them.
Coincidently, their mother was one of three siblings and they all died in birth order at the age of 86.
Mom is now 81 and I worry about how this affects her mentally and emotionally. She survived brest, brain & lung cancer several years ago. I'm afraid she's going to have the age of 86 in her mind like some sort of expiration date.
Am I being silly? She had me later in life and my kids are still young....she's still needed around here.
