My Mom
« on: November 02, 2017, 07:36:01 AM »
Today marks 13 years since my mother passed away in 2004. She passed away suddenly although, she hadn't been feeling well for some time, and we realized in the end that she had received an incorrect medical diagnosis from her doctor. I loved my mother dearly. We didn't always have a perfect relationship, but in the years preceding her death, I was incredibly close to her and as always knew that she was my closest ally. I miss her every day, but especially today when I realize how difficult the first years were when she had first passed away. To all of you, who are new to this journey and have recently(or not) lost a loved one, my message is that it does get easier with time. You will never forget your loved one. The memories will eventually make you smile, and the tears will dry, but the love does not end. I love you Mom and I always will.

Thank you for the hugs Terry. I am sorry to hear of the passing of your husband. This list was a godsend for me for several years, and although I seldom come here now, I am always aware of how helpful the people on here have been. Hugs back to you Terry.

Thank you Irene, I understand. This August will mark 17 years since my father passed and there isn't a day go by I don't think of him or a memory he and I shared doing stuff together. Much like you and your mom. I came here with the passing of my wife last year and have gotten support not only with her passing but also trying to offer help to those in dealing with the passing of their parent. In doing so I have found sometimes when giving advice I receive benefit as well. You mentioned it has been a while since you were here so thank you for stopping in and sharing.It helps you remember your mom and me remembering my dad.
