Time to say goodbye

Mom is gone. She's at the hospital, connected to a respirator with no chance of coming back. She is not there anymore; 3 days before her 88th birthday, roughly 10 days before my 50th birthday, I still don't know how to cope or if I'm doing fine. I've been holding up my tears, keeping a sense of humor, showing my brave face to my dad. He is 83 and he can barely understand how his partner, friend and lover for over 52 years is slowly disappearing.
My sister and I have been taking care of our parents for a long time and things are going to be so different from now on. We have to look after our father and hope that he can go. I'm not a religious person; I don't believe in God. However, I appreciate your prayers and thoughts of strengths for my sister and me so we can help dad in these times of grieving
