Try to be comforted by the absolutely certain knowledge that you are held in your Mother's heart always.I do hope that you feel a little better soon.

and so is your Mum.

Luvs, I hope that you are feeling better now. I miss my mom everyday. I call her on the phone everyday, if she is only 5 miles away or 500 hundred miles. She is my best friend. So, it is OK to miss your mom.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

My mom died 29 years ago today. She died instantly, so I never had a chance to say goodbye. I have never gotten over that. I am sharing your feelings.

JoAnn, at least your mom did not suffer.

Twenty-seven years ago, almost to the day, my mom passed after lasting six weeks following a stroke that left only one finger moving, sometimes. We knew she could hear us, when I spoke with her she would cry.

I remember both of my parents very fondly and still miss them. But still rely upon them. When the world seems to have gotten me down, or it seems to have gotten down on me, when the poop is hitting the fan, when I want a place to turn, or to find my moral compass, I ask myself what my folks would tell me. For some reason it seems to work. In some strange way I seem to find a proper answer.

Luvs, be glad you have such a great mom. Parents raise their children and then watch them go. Kids leave, usually glad, and a bit hesitant, to begin their independent lives. But if the folks are kind and caring they will always be there, whether it is just in spirit.

Take care and be glad you have such a great mom.

(JoAnn, at least your mom did not suffer).

When they die instantly like that, you have all sort of emotions. Of course sorrow, helplessness, even anger. ( I know that doesn't sound right, but you just can't help it). When my dad got home from work, he found her dead on the floor. Then he had a heart attack and was in intensive care when I had to bury my mother. Thank God he survided, he lived another 17 years.

I understand. I would give about anything to pick up the phone and hear my Dad's or Mom's voice! Hugs to you.
