My Mom Passed Away Unexpectedly

Friday, August 19, 2011

My Mother was my world.

The last few years have been so emotional for her and myself coming to terms with different health battles she has had to deal with. She firmly stood her ground to remain as independent as possible.

The last few days have been a whirl of activity that I was not really prepared for.
For a long time my routine has been consumed with thinking and anticipating her needs. I have not really accepted that she is not here to take care of.

I miss Mom.

    I lost my mom unexpectedly in 1996. She was in Florida and I was in TN. Found out over the phone from my poor dad. She was only 66. I never had to take care of my mom and never got to spend the time with her that I would have like to since we were military and moved around a lot. I am so very sorry for your loss, but in time there will be a light at the end of the tunnel. You are in my prayers.

    I lost my Mom in 1999 and I so sympathize with you now. Even though over 10 years have gone by I still miss her so much. For the first couple years I would pass by the phone and think to call her then realize she wasn't here anymore. How wonderful that you honour your Mother by missing her so much. I believe she is being cared for in a special place. Time does help and may your many happy memories sustain you. emoticon

    I am so sorry for your loss. My dad passed away unexpectedly and I always felt that I didn't have the time or opportunity to tell him how much I loved him and appreciated all he had done for me. I still "talk" to him almost daily and I'm sure you will do the same with your mom. They are always with us, living on in our hearts and memories.

Take care.

I have this poem with my late Mother's picture in my office. It comforts me and my hope is it will comfort you. Forever...there is a special connection to our mothers.

Once upon a memory
Someone wiped away a tear
Held me close and loved me
Thank you, Mother dear. emoticon emoticon

    I am so sorry about your mom's passing. I was in my 70's when my mom passed away at 99 1/2. We are never ready to give mom up but I would not call her back as she is in a much better place.
