This June my would be dead for 4 years.. Now that am writing it I can't believe timed passed by so fast.. Well I was home alone and my whole family were traveling to attend a wedding And i was just cleaning the house when a stranger called me telling me my uncle and his wife died (my mother and sister were in the car) I remember asking him what happened and him saying it was an accident so I hung up and kept calling my mom and calling never thinking something may have happened to her
. And I remember freaking out I was only 18 and alone and no one to call so I called my best friend and I started crying and crying..then she told me I will come to you just wait.. So I kept waiting and waiting till I called my cousins asking them to come ... After half an hr I got a call saying it wasn't uncle who is dead.. It was my mum...

The Loss of our Beloved Moms
by: Laura

No matter what anyone tells us - No. The pain does not get better or go away with time.
Maybe the tears subside - ever so slightly - but no, when people tell you the pain of your loss gets better - it's bull.
The empty void remains - The tears continue to flow - If only..... one more day.

Leila I am so sorry for your loss of your Mom to a sudden death. Life is so very sad each day hearing of people still affected by GRIEF. The loss of a mother is one of the most painful. Being alone at a time like this is so hard. I remember getting a phone call to tell me my nephew of 30yrs. threw himself in front of an express train and just screaming down the phone. I had my husband here for support. Now I have lost my husband to cancer 2yrs. ago and feeling very unhappy and sad this past week. I don't feel like cooking, eating, or doing anything. Even though I do work on 1 major job a week and cleaning the house in rotation. But it is done with extreme loneliness, and emptiness. It is so hard to pick oneself up and go on in life. There is tragedy everywhere. It has been 4yrs. ago for you so telling you to take one day at a time would not be appropriate. I hope that you have a supportive family as this does help one get through the rough times of grief and loss. I had this support at the time I needed this. Time is all we have to Heal from our loss.
