Oh I'm so sorry, Dawg. I lost my mother 5 years ago. It's so hard.

Thinking of you.

Nonna (Mamma's Mother) was a wonderful lady, and I miss her. I'm sorry, also, Dawg.

With love,
~Cat

Yup, this ^. Just remember, no matter how long she's gone she is in your heart every day. I am sure our lost loved ones hear us when we talk to them in our hearts. Keep in touch with her, it does help.

It will be 14 years next month since my Mom died, it was 22 for my Dad last month. All these years later I can hear my Dad call me by my nickname, and Mom telling me "Love ya" every night when we talked. And I can still "hear" their voices, as if they were right here.

I can still hear Nonna's sweet voice in my head too. She was such a wonderful lady and I do still talk to her, always. She was taken away from us too soon in a car accident.

Nonna would sit with me and put her fingers through my hair and I remember the feeling of her fingers going through my hair and how relaxing and sweet that was. We would talk of everything; she was just like Mamma. When she laughed, she was contagious.

Nonna made me feel so very special.

With love,
~Cat

I miss my dad every day. Seems like the "firsts" are the hardest.

Hopefully the feelings of sadness, will eventually be overshadowed by the happy memories, they are for me now.

Hugs!

So sorry, Dawg. I don't have any soft fuzzies of my mother so I can't relate, but I wish I could. On the other hand, it was 40 years ago November that my father died and, some days, I miss him as much now as the day he died.

As others have said, the sadness lessens and is cushioned by all the good memories. Hang on to those.

So sorry for your loss. My mother has been gone 38 years, but I still think if things I want to tell her.

I do understand, Dawg. All those "firsts" seem to be the hardest, though as others have said it really doesn't get easier. It will be 2 years for Dad and 19 for Mom in March and I miss them equally.

Sending love and big hugs to you {{{{{{{{{{{{{Dawg}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Awww (((Dawg))), I'm so sorry. I lost my beloved Mom many years ago, on my husband's birthday. Now he's gone too, and on each Nov. 17th I think of the profound impact they both had on my life. After all these years, I've learned the grieving finally stops, but the missing never does.

We love you, Dawg, and we feel very much sorrow for your loss.
