I don't think there's anything you can do or not do that makes this time any easier. The fact is that they're out mothers and fathers and nature has hardwired us for certain feelings toward them, certain expectations that lead to pain and confusion when they aren't met.

When my dad strongly suspected he was dying, he started apologizing when he saw that he was hurting me. But it was a here and now sort of thing. I kept my conversations with him as positive as they could possibly be, and I'm really glad I did.
