My Mom just passed away a couple days ago. She died in a car accident. She was found in a a river, at the bottom of the Feather River Canyon 30 minutes from Quincy, CA. She was going to visit her brother and his wife but she never made it, A part of me died when I found out 8 hours after it had happened. The police knocked on my door at 2:32am and told me the news. Ever since then I feel empty inside. I know I have support and my family loves me, but I still feel completely alone. My Dad died when I was five so my Mom had been a single parent for the majority of my life. I am only a sophomore in college, just barely turned 19 and I have already lost both parents. I want my Mom back more than anything. I would do anything to have one more moment with her. The day she died I had this nagging feeling to text her, so I did. That was the last time I spoke with her because she died about 30 minutes later. Even though we only talked about school and my car, I am so glad I got that nagging feeling. But I wish I had called her, I wish I had heard her voice one more time before she died. My Mom was my role model, my rock, and my best friend. There were no secrets between us, just honesty. I will never forget her and how inspirational she was. She was an immigration attorney who helped thousands immigrate to the United States. She was loved by everyone. I will miss her very much. I just hope when she died she knew how much I loved her and that she meant more to me than anything in this world.
