My mom

Well my mom died with my dad and I by her side Tuesday March 21st at 4:34 pm. She fought it until her last breath. A few minutes before her death she opened her eyes and we locked gazes and I know she saw and heard my dad and I say we love you for the last time. Thanks for all of the support and information throughout her treatment. She truly fought the beast and she will be the best guardian angel that my kids could ask for.

When I look to the sky and see a "rainbow" I think of my mum and dad and all my dear friends that have passed away. I have sent rainbows to my friends here because they are "the gift of love". Your mum has received that love and is in good hands. Look upon a rainbow with the memories of your dear mother.
We are so sad for you, may you find comfort in that she no longer suffers.
Sincerely, Ross and Jen

Im so sorry to hear about your mom. Its funny you said she opened her eyes at the end. I hear everyone does that. My grandmother did that and i was standing right over her. Till this day I believe she is my guardian angel. When ever I pray to her she listens and I beleive its because I was the last person she saw before she passed on. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your dad. Mindy

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. I know you stood by your mom through her fight.

I haven't posted this in a while, but now seems like an appropriate time:

I'm Not Here
Do not stand by my grave and weep
for I'm not there; I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond's glint on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn's rain
When you awaken, in morning's hush
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circle flight
I am the stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there; I did not die.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I can really feel your pain. My mom lost her battle last night (3/22) at 10:45 p.m. with all of her daughters by her side. I hope you find comfort in knowing she will never have to deal with the monster again. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I offer my sincerest condolences to both of you, themis01 and gabor. I remember when I lost my own mother to colon cancer, and I know how difficult a time this is for you. I wish you the best for the future.

I truly believe that your mom just changed positions...from in front of your eyes to inside your heart. She will live forever there. No longer in pain or having to fight the beast. Please take comfort in knowing that all of us have you and your family in our prayers.

Erika,

I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I know that there is nothing anyone can say right now that will make you feel any better, but know that you were a rock of support for her through the entire battle and you did everything you could. I know she felt that support and it was a great comfort to her. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Please call me if you feel like talking.

Sincerely,
Deneen

Heaven has 2 more beautiful angels. My sincere condolences to you, and your families, themis and Linda.

Peace. They know peace now. What a wonderful thing.

And Kanga, every time I see a rainbow, it makes me stop and take a moment to remember those we have lost, and the blessings we have in our lives. Thank you for that.

You will miss them dearly, but please take solace in knowing that they now know true peace.

All my love,

Barb

For Linda; Jen and I offer our sincere sympathy to you. And I meant what I said about the "rainbow". The colours come from the light that shines over us all. From the day we first saw those colours in the sky as children we stood in awe of its beauty.It is the one thing that we all will see throughout our lives.
Erika and Linda....please continue to share with us your thoughts. There is a family here for both of you when you feel the need for comforting.
huggs to you both, Ross and Jen

Oh Erika:
I was so very sad to see your post...

"and He will raise her up on eagles' wings
and bear her on the breath of dawn
make her shine like the sun
and hold her in the palm of His hand"

I pray you find some comfort knowing your Mom is at peace- God Bless you and your family honey.

Oh-OOh

You've posted to a thread that's from 2006. Many have passed on and simply can't reply, or have other things to do, like sweep off clouds, or in my case, shovel coal into the vast furnace of hell.

Please take care to look at the original date of the very first post? If it's more than a few months, start a new thread.

Thanks.

Best wishes

John
