A very sad time for me!!

Friday, December 10, 2010

My mom passed away quietly in her sleep Wednesday (around 5 am cst) She had been suffering for altzheimers and that is probably the cause. I haven't been sleeping. I haven't been eatting and as of this writting no tears.
I along with my siblings made arrangements and the funeral is set for Monday.
I also have not worked since Monday,,,,,,,I am going to go to work on Sunday and I will see how that goes!

    How strange that I came across this blog on what would have been my dear mother's birthday- her 84th- she died at the young age of 80 and I still miss her.
    Sorry about your mother.

    It sounds so feeble to say sorry for your loss at such a tragic time for you and yours. But that's all they teach us to say. I pray you will have a comforting grief for your loss, and that your personal pain will pass quickly. Love and hugs, B

    My mother also had altzheimers and we had to put her in a home in the state my brother lives in because NY has a waiting list forever long. I was going to go visit and she died that week. It was all very sad. It is such an awful disease and also hard on us. Take care.

    Hi - I am sorry for your loss. My mom died on 12/8/99 - This time of year is still sad for me. Getting through Christmas that year was awful and I always feel a little lonely every Christmas now. What helps me most is good friends and knowing that I had a great mom. I teach high school and daily I see that not all moms are great and loving but mine was and I can give daily thanks for that and also that I had her til I was 43. Hugs Susan

    I'm very sorry for your loss! My mother passed away on 10/2 the same way - Alzheimers probably the cause. I understand your sorrow not only for your loss this Wednesday but for the much earlier loss of your mother as you knew her.

    I'll you keep you and your family in my prayers. Some say time heals all. I think time doesn't so much heal as it makes our loss easier to bear. I hope the good memories sustain you and cheer you, and, as a poet said:

    "When you look up into the heavens tonight
    Think of them not as stars
    But as porch lights
    Welcoming your loved one home"

    I am so sorry to hear this news! May the good Lord give you strength... I lost my Mom 10 years ago and I still feel the loss. You may never completely get over it but you will feel her with you. The best thing you can do for your Mom's memory is to take care of yourself and be as healthy as you can. God bless you and your family.

    I am so sorry about your loss. Grieve for as long as you need to. This is part of a poem that I wrote for my best firends' Mom sunset. I hope that it brings you comfort.

    Though I cannot feel the touch of your hand,
    Or walk with you upon this land,
    Yet I know you are here
    And I will always feel you near
    Have the sweetest of dreams,
    my sweetest of heart,
    and know that even when away,
    we are never apart.
    So I whisper your name, tonight Momma
    As our journey was extraordinaire.
    To wish you sweet dreams and good night in the air
