Like Ged’s parents, Kemmerich’s mom coped with her son’s death by being told that they died bravely and did not suffer. Paul helps Kemmerich’s mom cope by telling her that “He died immediately.

The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
