I am going to ask for prayers for a little girl (she is 9 or 10) in our community, her 40 year old mother passed away on Sunday afternoon probably from a stroke. She dances with my cousins and her mother was very involved with her as well as the rest of the little girls, she was also on our local police force. She will be laid to rest this morning.

I feel so sorry for this little girl, she and her mother were as close as my mother and I were. My cousin read me a note she had laid on her mother's chest at the visitation and I just cried, I knew them both but not as well.

I lost my mom on 12 Sept. 2011.
She had Alzheimers and heart disease, it was a stroke that took her.
I was informed of her " not going to make it thru the night", as I was trying to wake up from the 2 am call. I got out of bed to call my boss, I was called again to let me know she was with my dad. And uninvited to come to California for the services... I wasnt wanted there.
Arrangements were made the week before when she had the stroke and put into the hospital. I knew nothing of this. My brother and sisters were there to say good bye and make her arrangments. Im glad she didnt go alone.
Im sad that I wasnt included in her last week, just to hold her hand one last time. I figured the last time I did see her would be our last time together, so I really did get to say good bye.

I am so sorry for your loss Ann.

It must be very distressing for you to lose your mum and not be included in the arrangements for her funeral and I sorry that you have to endure this additional pain.

Perhaps you can find your own way to say 'goodbye' and honor your mum's life.

Please know that I am thinking of you

Quasar

I lost my Mom in 1993 when I was only 18.

She passed away from Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) after a 5 year battle.

She missed all my major milestones - graduations, wedding, grandchildren, etc.

I miss her more than anything, she was my best friend. Even now, 18 years later, I get teary eye'd just thinking of her.

The balloon release and dinner sound very special.
Good luck with the chilli, I hope it's not too hot.

A part of your mum will always be with you at those special milestones but it is not the same as being physically there and I can only imagine how difficult it has been for you.

great book

I happened upon a great book tonite at the library called Feathers Brush My Heart (true stories of mothers touching their daughters' lives after death), by Sinclair Browning. It has short stories in it about how mothers contact their daughters through dreams, objects, etc. and show that their love, care and concern for us never really dies.

I have been missing my mom a lot lately, more so than usual, and she has been gone for more than 8 years, so I was glad to see this book. I really relate to the stories, because I truly feel my mom has been there for me at times. It is a long story, but we relate seeing a red cardinal as a sign of my mom being there, and cardinals have shown up at times that are too odd to be coincidental. I know it was her, just showing me she is still there, and watching over me.

I have only read 2 stories in the book so far, but know it will be a comfort. So, thought I'd share it!
to all!

Just saw this thread.

Unfortunately I also can say that we lost my wife to breast cancer on April 28, 2010 after a 4 year battle. She was a wonderful mother to our 2 children daughter 11 and son 7. It is such a nasty disease, she never stopped fighting it right up to the end. Her strength is certainly in our children, they don't let anything stop them. We all miss our loved ones so much, but also we must keep moving forward thats what they all would want.

You are right that no matter what happens in life we must go on but sometimes it is a difficult journey.

Big to you and your precious children. It must be a blessing to see your wife's strength in your children.

I lost my mom in 2004. She used to go with us to Disneyland. I remember the first year we went without her (2001- after her cancer dx).

I lost my mom for the final time on Saturday, 10/22.

It was suppose to be a happy day as it was our 35th Wedding Anniversary. My husband and I had nothing really special planned, just time with each other and our oldest son. We happened to be in his town that weekend getting some winterizing done to my mother's Ohio home.

The call came early in the morning. She had passed away, alone, in a bed, in an institution in FL.

I remember my last words to her, "Mom, It will be okay." The words were so inadequate for the situation at hand.

It was seven months and 7 days before her death. She was being taken away from me and her home. She was placed by her sons into an institution in FL, where according to them she would get care. My father, her husband had died three days earlier. His wishes were for me to care for her. It was in his will and before his death the entire family had agreed to it.

I will never understand what went down. I will never get over the pain of seeing her ripped away. She was so upset and wanted me.

A new widow who is 92 years old should not be taken from everything they know and hold dear!

She had dementia but she had very lucid times. She knew what she wanted and she understood what they were doing to her. She begged me to hide her away and find a way to stop them from taking her from her home. I tried every legal thing I could think of to stop them.

I lost Mom to dementia, my Mama appeared. She was a very different person from my Mom, but still a pretty great person. I lost my Mama to my brothers and their greed. Losing her three times has been impossibly difficult.

I am so glad she is now at peace and in Heaven. She knows that I kept every promise made to her and to dad. I will live a good life to celebrate hers!

She was the most amazing mother, grandmother, great grandmother, wife and friend. We who loved her most, are happy that she is no longer suffering!

I am so sorry that you have lost your mum, it must have been a very difficult dealing with all these ongoing losses over the past few years.

Hold on to you happy memories and please know that I am thinking of you and your family during this sad time

My mom died at the age of 78 on 11/6/01, so it is her 10 year anniversary. We lost her to early onset alzheimers and she was in a nursing home since 1997. She was loving and trusting and the aids at the nursing home loved her and took good care of her. She did not speak for the last 3 years of her life, but my dad, sisters & I visited often. I still miss her. She loved Disney, and even when she was sick I took her to Universal and WDW.
