Hi @gl-friend That is the same experience that I am having with majority of my friends. I am doing a somewhat of a detox of social media (Mainly just staying off Facebook – deactivated my account) and the amount of people that haven’t contacted me, is incredible. A few I am in daily contact throughout the day but majority of them, have heard from them once. My “best friend” called me the other day when I was at work, I didn’t answer the call and I didn’t reply straight away, only today, well yesterday as it’s after midnight now. Apologised for not getting back. SHe was like, all good, just wanted to say hope your ok. When I said I was getting there, she was like, thats great and then that was it.

My Dad was my best friend, we did everything together. 17 years since he has been gone. I just look at people with their parents and think they are so lucky. Once they are gone, that’s it. People may disown people for whatever reason, and I get that, but once the other person can’t respond back, it’s too late. There is always a chance. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. You are so true, some days are harder than others. For me, at the moment, the pain is so hard. I am sure that the moments you had with your Mum until she passed were some memorable ones.
