Intensely closeMy mom in particular was very quiet, while my dad was equally silent - but this is normal for him now.
The silent moments were more strained, and I feel so guilty for not knowing how much they are going through.
After they left, I remembered how much they love each other. They've been together for 31 years - I've been with Shaun for four - I imagine that their love for each other is at least seven times more intense than my love for Shaun, and I love him pretty intensely.
I can't imagine how my mom feels knowing how close she is to losing him.
