This is difficult to write as my mom just passed about an hour ago. I am 4000 miles away and couldn't get there in time even if I had tried. She had
lung problems, developed pneumonia, went into a coma and died. All before I could even breathe.
My sister kept me updated throughout the few hours we had.
I lost my dad a couple of years ago and now her, my most favorite person in this World. Many will ask why I am writing this and it's quite simple.
My wife is in shock and lighting candles as I write this. We are alone and I feel I have to write this at this moment to share her with so many
friends I have made on this site and to mark this moment if only for me.
I have written many times that my mom was my hero. She was in so many ways. I can't type too much right now but I would just ask for a minute of
anyone's life to share at this time.
Bye Mom. I'll miss you. You were my guiding light and hero. You were an incredible Mom and Grandma to all of us,,,
She was that little old lady sitting in the back pew of her Church, playing her tambourine, singing terribly and loving everyone.
This is for her.
All my Love...

Personally my deepest thoughts go out to you and your loved ones in this time of great sadness and loss of your mother.
I am many many miles away from those in my family that i love and care for and have also lost family members and not been able to be there, so i can
deeply sympathise with you and understand exactly how you feel...
I just remember all the good times we had together.
i lost mine a few months after 9/11 and wasn't with her, 6000 miles away, so i understand your loss all too clearly. all i can tell you is that the
pain does subside eventually *hug* now, 12 odd years later, i can smile and giggle over some of the memories we made, and appreciate the fact that
she's hugely responsible for the person i am today.. .she'd be proud.. as i'm sure your mum would be too.
deepest sympathies for your loss today, i'll be thinking of you and sending you good vibes x
I'm so sorry you have to endure this. You might not see it right away but she lives in you. When you ask "What would Mom do?" You'll mysteriously
have the answer ALWAYS. Even on ideas and concepts that didn't exist in her time. It's not possible without her presence within.
Lots of love to you and others who'll miss her. I miss her, too, in your heartbreak. My deepest condolences to you and yours.
Very sorry to hear and sending my regards. Don't feel alone there's a lot of us out there who know this pain and who can offer help. Reflecting on
memories is most of what we can do to keep loved ones who passed with us. Depending on your beliefs they are with us always, while not in an earthly
form, guiding us. Know that you should give yourself as much time to grieve as needed and in balance occupy your mind in positive energy and the
memories you shared.
I'm so sorry for your loss!
What a wonderful Mother she must have been,
to have raised a kind, loving, thoughtful son like you!
What a perfect tribute to a Mother, to have a son that speaks so highly of her!
I can only hope that one of my kids will say something half as nice about me someday!
What is it about May? I know so many people who died in May.
It used to be my favorite month. Until my Mom & Dad picked it!
They died two & a half days apart. Both unexpectedly.
Everyone that knew them was dumbfounded! It's not supposed to happen that way!
Then four years later my brother was killed in a car accident. (His real name was Jude!)
I don't know what people without strong faith do to get through the rough patches?
It's the only thing that kept our family going!
That, & wonderful, subtle & not so subtle signs. Watch for them!
Did she have a favorite bird, flower or song? You may see/hear them a lot.
We were amazed at the things that happened after.
And still sometimes, around the anniversary of their death or their birthdays.
Even now, 17 years later! Though not as often as before.
It's like they give us little signs of their love to keep us strong!
I hope she sends you a lot of them!
You are very lucky to have shared such a wonderful, special love!!!
Always here if you need to talk!
I feel for ya mate. All I can say is the pain and sadness will dull over time. You'll find also that as time goes on, you'll now and then remember
the nice things that you did in the past with your mum. Let yourself enjoy her memories
Very sorry to hear of this Jude. I lost my dad last September and like your mother was someone I truly looked up to and respected. No words can be
of help right now I know. I'm sure she was a very special person who left a truly fine son to carry on. My heartfelt sympathies to you and your family
at this time.
