So my step dad has been battling cancer off and on for years now. Well today he went to walk with Jesus. My mom is now by herself in another state where she doesn't really have anyone. Not any friends outside of work and no family. Y'all have any suggestions on what I can do to help her through such a shit time? BTW my moms only in her 50s so Lord willing she'll be around a while.

where is the rest of your family? are they scattered about or centralized? would she consider moving?

I am currently looking at moving to be close to my 2 boys (same town) and about 45 minutes from my parents

I just lost my father in law who was actually common law to my mother in law for 17yrs. They lived together 6. As hard as it was for me I told my wife we can renovate a rather large extra part of our house that has a bathroom etc and she can live there. She just survived cancer, lost her husband and I can't bare to let her stay alone. It helps I get along with her well...I lived with her a little In first part of my marriage.

We (her kids) are here in Fort Worth area. I assume she will move back this way but I have no idea if she will or not.

Have the boys facetime her daily and just constantly let her know that you and the family love her and are there for her even if it's not in person.

That's some pretty solid advice.

I am looking at my mother moving back to Texas. She lost her significant other a couple years ago and his kids are making her life difficult. Long story. But she mentioned to me that she might want to move back especially since she is now a great grandmother. She is hella stubborn, so, who knows......

If your mother decides to move back, maybe we can coordinate a mom moving party. LOL

BTW, sorry for your loss.

Sorry to hear about your Step-Dad. May he rest in peace.

Mitch and Dustin have good ideas, or you could move her back and she can live with you until she gets on her feet again.
