Thank you so much for your thoughtful and loving replies, it makes me feel better to tell and talk to people. Thank you for your comfort.
Thank you so much for this loving response, I appreciate that.So very sorry to hear this about your mom, cbeeindisney. My condolences to you, your dad, family and your and your mom's friends. So sudden and unexpected.
Take comfort that your mom and dad had just recently returned from a wonderful winter trip at their winter home and were able to spend time at one of their favorite places together, Disney World, just the two of them, enjoying each other.
It sounds like you have a lifetime of wonderful memories of your mom. Cherish those, hold them dear. They will be with you for your lifetime ahead. Your mom will be with you for your lifetime ahead, and beyond.
God bless you, cbeeindisney, God speed for mom.
I'm so very sorry for your loss, what a fantastic picture to find. Love that you have that picture and memory.I'm very sorry for your and your family's loss. She sounds like she loved life and would be very happy to hear you will return to Disney again.
I lost my dad at the end of March and one of the things that cheered me up was coming across a picture I took of him and my mom walking with arms linked toward the train station into the Magic Kingdom. He's waiving a little a "Bye bye" behind his back to me as I'm not keeping up. I can hear his voice saying clear as day in my mind as I look at it.
Those memories are priceless.
I love this and love that you do that- what a sweet way to carry her with you and keep her memory alive.Sending virtual hugs your way. So Sorry for your loss.
Our family vacations were multi yearly visits when I was growing up. .. , which I continued with my own family.
I made a “ thing” out of taking a Fav pix of my mom with me on our trips. The pix I chose was from many years back, my mom standing on Main Street in MK in front of a particular store. I hold that pix and stand in the same spot. Some of her grandchildren have done the same thing on some Of their Special trips... like a sweet Sixteen. I’ve shared some of those pix with my siblings.
My sister bought me a Disney pin that has a locket to place My moms portrait in. She thought It was better than bring the little pix frame with me. It’s just another way to keep my mom close.
The hurt never leaves, but with time it becomes bearable. Condolences.
