O/T My Mom passed away last night.

I sit here heartbroken as I write this. I just want to let you all know that my very dearest Mother, my best friend passed away last night. She was at home with my Pop, my husband Tom and myself when she passed. This is how she wanted it to be. She did not want to die in a hospital with none of us around her. At least now she is at peace. I don't know if I ever will be again. My Momma and Pop just celebrated their 62nd anniversary on Sunday. I'm just numb and very, very sad. I know if I start crying, I'm never going to be able to stop. I think I'm going to end up in a padded room. I have no idea how I am going to get through this.
I feel so bad for my Pop. Don't know how he is going to make it through this. Momma, I love you and always will.

Kathie, I'm so very and sincerely sorry

I lost my mom ten years ago now, and I remember the incredible feeling of loss. She was a huge part of my life and I still shed a tear to this day when I remember certain things we used to do together.

My sister and I were totally panicked about our dad, who relied on her for so many things. He surprised us by assuming more independence - he did just fine. So don't worry about your dad, he's got you and he'll be OK.

You'll be OK too - eventually. Cry if you need to, it doesn't help to keep this bottled up. If you can talk to someone, maybe a grief counsellor, I encourage you to do so. I didn't and I think it would have made a huge difference if I had. They know how to help you work with and through your grief.

Hang in there, sweety. Hug your bullies because they want to help. Stella saved me during those crazy days right after her passing and supported me all through my grief.

ay sweetie...(((hugs))),condolences to you and to your family on your loss...,i can't fathom facing that but as i have grown older i have thought when the time come eventually what and how will i cope and it always ends w/uncontrollable sobbing(like right now),my mom is one of my best friends too so i can definiely relate...but please let it out cry,yell,scream,break things if you have to but don't bottle it up,eventually and maybe reluctantly and unwillingly things do get better,as far as your dad is concerned i'm sure he'll be fine after all he had 62 yrs...how many ppl can actually say that?
give your bullies hugs as i'm sure they are sensing your grief and sadness and they'll be near and around you...

So sorry, and sending many, MANY ((( HUGS ))))......And wow

on SIXTY-TWO years!!!  I am SO happy they got to celebrate, but I can't even imagine how sad your Pop is, and I'm sorry!!!

I honestly know what you mean about starting to cry and worrying you'll never stop-----I was the SAME WAY when I lost

my baby brother 4 years ago!!!!!!  I never knew I had SOOO many tears in me, and sometimes I cried SO HARD, I also

was afraid I'd never stop.  PLEASE, be easy on yourself, and let the tears flow!!! I truly believe crying is VERY healthy....

Also, PLEASE remember, there are wonderful grief counselors out there who can help you....don't be afraid to call them!!!!!
((( HUGS )))))

I am so sorry.

Like your mother, mine passed in her own home. As you said, it was the way she wanted it. I understand your sorrow and will have you and your family in my heart. Take care of yourself.

so very sorry - I know exactly how you feel...

my mom passed away 6 years ago and I still miss her so dearly. she was my best friend and biggest supporter. She died too young, too fast. She was like no other in this world - nobody can take the place of a mom. You have to hold those dear memories of your sweet mom close to you. It will help you through the rough times. so sorry......

Very sorry....

You have my sincere sympathy.  Take care and God bless.
