    Re: Aging parents

    Consolidate your verb tenses a bit. Since you're giving advice about what to do before parents die, it sounds strange using the past and past perfect.

    "You should provide each and every convenience and comfort to your aging parents. If you didn't don't do this, you would will regret it after they had die d".

    It looks like maybe you were trying to use the present unreal conditional, but that's used to talk about what you generally do in imaginary situations. In this situation, you're attempting to give advice in the present.

    Re: Aging parents

    I am talking about hypothetical situation, that's why I used past in my last sentence. So please tell, that was correct or not?.
