Mom's gone

My mom passed away this afternoon. A friend found her on the floor, called the ambulance, and she died in the hospital.

It hasn't really hit me yet, I'm still in shock. Lots of phone calls, texts, and emails going on...

I miss her.

She who dies with the most toys, wins.

Oh, DL, I'm so sorry to hear this. Was she ill? {{{{{hugs to DL}}}}}

((((DL))))) I'm just so sorry to hear this terrible news. Yes you are in shock right now with much to do. Above all, be good and gentle with yourself and we are here for you whenever you want to talk about it. I remember thinking when my mom died many years ago, that I lost the first person who ever loved me. Gentle hugs to you my friend.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

My mom passed away nearly 10 years ago. It still hurts. I can vividly recall getting the phone call from Dad. My heart goes out to you DL. Prayers for you and your family.

So sorry to hear this. It's never easy, even when it's expected. Let alone your situation.
My thoughts are with you, Dawg.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I am so sorry to hear this. I will be praying for you and your family. When my mom died 12 years ago, it was much the same. I'm sure you feel very numb today, and you will for awhile. Hold on to your good memories. It may not seem like it now, but things will get better.

I'm so sorry, dawg. Take care of yourself and try to get some rest. Sending positive, calming thoughts your way.

I'm so sorry, DL. My own mom passed away under much the same circumstances so I can relate somewhat. I think the hardest part for me was missing out on saying goodbye.

You have my deepest sympathy on your loss.

Dawg, I am so sorry, my good thoughts for you and your family!
