My mom died February 19th at home...she was already packed and ready to live in a senior community in her home town of Hemet California...but she did not make it and she was so excited to go and meet new people. My brother in law found her cold and non responsive on her bedroom floor with her beloved Beagle, Casey...Casey would not leave her side until the mortuary came and had to pry her off of mom...I guess Casey was protecting her because it's always unconditional love with all animals..We buried mom on February 26th which would have been her 91st birthday...Now, mom was not only the best mom ever but she was also my best friend and I would call and talk sometimes 2-3 times a day and I guess right now after a month after her burial I still want to pick up the phone and tell her what recipe I just tried or ask her something about if she had experienced something that I had not and what to do? I just can't believe that I will never hear her voice ever again..Mom I miss and love you very much..And, I will remember all the wonderful things you said and taught me...thank you for being my mom!

    I'm sorry to read of your loss. I still (15 yrs. after his death) pick up the phone to call my Father. Those moments decrease with time, and yet... the loss is still so great.

Praying for you & yours.

    Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break. ~William Shakespeare

Keep talking about your mom. Keep telling her stories. Keep talking to your mom. Keep telling her stories.

    May God Bless you now. I still have my mom. She is going through chemo right now. So, I do appreciate the time I spend with her. I am with her during her chemo treatments and I wouldn't take that time away for anything. But, reading your blog made me appreciate her and the time spent with her even more. I am so sorry for your loss.

    So sad to lose a loved one, but how lucky for your mom to have passed in her own home without a lingering illness. She will always be a part of your life in cherished memories

    My mom was my best friend as well as mom so I know somewhat you are feeling. It has been 8 yrs since Mom passed away. It has gotten easier as time passes but there are still days when I reach for the phone to call her. My prayers are with you and your family. It does get easier over time. emoticon emoticon

  When my mom went someone said to me "We are never old enough to lose our mothers". So true. My sympathies. emoticon
