My mother passed away December 4th.

Last edited Sun Dec 7, 2014, 12:38 AM - Edit history (1)

she had been ill for a while and we about lost her last year

Her funeral will be on Monday

The last good conversation with my mother, I asked her if she was scared. She said "NO are you? I told her no, I knew I was going to heaven. She said that's good. I then asked her what the first thing she was going to do when she got to heaven. She said "I'm going to kiss our Lord Jesus Christ, find your daddy and eat an orange" Then she reached up and stroked my hair. Told me she loved me.

It was 11/5/2013 for Mom. And I agree, it sucks big time.

So many people do not get to have those moments.

lose someone you've had with you and loved for your entire life.

I hope you have family and friends nearby to help you through these difficult days ahead. My deepest sympathies.

27. I am so sorry to hear this...

I just brought my 93 year old Mom home from 2 weeks in the hospital (for a heart "event" yesterday.

It's so hard (when my Dad passed suddenly in 1998) and words don't heal all...but know we are all here and like Omaha Steve says, take that time to grieve and for yourself. Nothing heals a loss but I found time helps.

Again, my sincere thoughts are with you.

I'm still getting used to it. Like you, my mom had been sick for about a year and it wasn't unexpected, but you are never ready. I was just glad that she didn't suffer at the end, and I thank Hospice for that.

were scared. You were lucky to have each other other.

Please be comforted that she was not frightened and that you had time to express your love to each other.

65. I lost my Mother on Sept 23, 2001.

It left a hole in my heart that nothing can fill. I think of her virtually every day and remember how she taught me the essence of why being a liberal was the only moral choice. In that sense, she lives on thru me.

May your mother live on in your heart thru your love of all she did and meant to you. She has merely stepped through a portal we all will someday into a realm we are yet to know.
