I just lost my mom almost a week ago.She was a wonderful 73 year old lady. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't be what I am today. She help me raise my kids after my divorce. she left behind 4 grand children 2 which are mine. everyone tells me to be strong and have faith but I just feel like I can't go on. I try to be strong but I miss her so much.I'm in so much pain and I miss her so much.

I am very sorry for your loss. I can't imagine your pain. I too am very close to my mom and she is a very important part of my life so losing her would be devastating. I hope that with time you find some peace and that you find comfort in all your wonderful memories.
Thinking of you.

You have my most sincere condolences, Veronica. Your grief honors your mother, and the old cliche that 'time heals all wounds' is true, at least in lessening the sharp pain you feel today. Her love for you lives on in all that she taught you about loving your own children, and so she will always be with you and with them in that way.

Did she have uterine cancer? (You don't have to talk about that if it is too painful. But we are here for you.) BIG HUGS!

I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I can't even imagine the pain you must be feeling. I think Linda is right that "time heals all wounds." You will never forget her, but the aching for her will dull as time goes on. You will soon be able to smile at all of the wonderful memories of her. Draw your family close to you now as you all need each other to get through this loss. May God be with you and wrap you in his loving arms during this difficult time.
Prayers and hugs to you.

I am so sorry to hear of your Mother's death. She obviously was a wonderful woman and a truly terrific Mom. You are very fortunate that you had such a great relationship with her and learned so much from her. I well remember when my dear Mother died. She was loved by everyone who knew her and it was just hard to believe she was gone....that I would never hug her again, never chat with her. Some days I would just burst out crying. My thoughts were about her constantly. But, time does heal the pain and now although I will always her miss her, I am not so sad. Think about the special times you had together, the many ways she influenced you, and all the things she taught you. I often have "chats" with my Mom and can always feel her presence. I planted some flowers just for her as I know how much she loved flowers. I laugh frequently at the fun times we had. When I go back "home" tovist her gravesite, I take a picnic lunch and a glass of wine and we "chat". The fond memories will get you through this, but it takes time to heal the incredible sadness!

My prayers are with you!

I lost my Mother one year ago. I can understand your feeling of loss and your pain at this time. Remember the good times, and all your favorite things about your Mom. There is a saying I like "When someone you love becomes a memory, those memories become treasures. May you have many moments to treasure.

I too want to share my condolences. When I lost my mother many years ago at age 79 - the priest said "All mother's die too young". Wow, how true that is!!

Take time to grieve and talk about your mother and share how wonderful she was/is. I believe that my deceased loved ones are still here and watching over me. I talk to them alot (usually silently :))and thank them for their help.

Losing such an important person in your life leaves a big void. Take the time you need to cry.

God Bless you, Mary Ann
