please let it be just one long nightmare
by: Anonymous

momma... tonight, while frantically searching for my wallet, i stumbled across a letter you wrote me about 5 years ago. it was postmarked on my 21st birthday. this year's birthday was miserable. no letter, no phone call. i deeply missed wishing you a "happy birthing day." i can't believe it's been six months - that the world could keep going without you. i am so regretful for working so much such that i rarely saw you in the last year, and for starting to think you were getting better... i miss you and daddy so much.

You were the greatest.

She passed without warning on June 12 1996. I was working halfway across the state, got a call from my soon to be ex-wife informing me. I packed up my tools and headed back making phone calls as I drove. My Dad was making lunch for them as he did every day and turned to speak to Mom. He said an odd look passed over her face and she pitched forward. Brain aneurysm. Gone like a gust of wind had blown out a candle.

Now, November 2014 and not a day goes by I don't think of her. Sometimes something big will happen and the thought occurs to call her. Kind of like getting punched in the gut but the grief isn't as sharp. I have wonderful memories of my childhood. The passing years seem to have sharpened my memories of Mom. I'm just grateful to have been her son and to have had the time with her that I had.

I miss her every day.

my dearest mum
by: Anne

My mum died on 23rd August 2013, 5 days after my 60th birthday. She died 3 months to the day I was found to have rectal cancer. We lost my bother from pancreatic cancer when he was 46 in 2001, he was married with 3 children. She was my rock, my best friend and the most wonderful and giving person I have ever met. We had so much fun and laugher together and I miss her so very much. I feel her near me so much, have seen and touched her in dreams and so many things have happened that I could not write them all on here, where, through God she has made her presence known to me. I cry every day for her and it has been hard dealing with treatments, operation for the cancer and mourning for her. She has helped me get through it all, and I know she is praying for me in Heaven with my dear brother. I am looking after dad, and I love you mummy, eternally. your Anne forever.xxx

Mum, I love you
by: Anonymous

Dear Mum,

I miss you so much, you were taken too soon, too young, too suddenly.
Every cell in my body aches for you, your voice, your hugs, your comfort.
I wanted the best for you, and it hurts me so much that we were never able to achieve it. You deserved better in life. I wanted your smile to be true. I know
Mum I love you. I will always love you. I know you loved me too.
You know how you meant to me. I'll be with you forever.
I'm the luckiest person on Earth to have had you as a mother.
It hurts to let go.
Mum I love you. xxxxxxx.

No ordinary love.

I've Lost My Rock
by: Anonymous

I cry as I read each comment below. This is so hard to deal with. My mom was my encouragement, my cheerleader, my confidant, and although I'm married, probably the only woman I've truly, truly loved. She passed so suddenly and was not exactly old. She had a peace about her that made you feel that everything that was wrong in your world was going to be OK. I would often call her just to get grounded again after a horrible day either in my personal or professional life. She had many friends and I envied her ability to love everyone no matter what their faults. She was a servant. She helped everyone she could, often when she wasn't feeling well herself. She loved to shop and buy trinket gifts for friends because she knew what that special person's interests or likings were and that it would make them feel good. She was my role model on how to treat people; some that didn't deserve the time of day in my opinion. But she never stopped loving and giving. Oh, mom. How I wish I could just get one more moment, one more hug, or just one more joke in on you. We will meet again. That's what I keep telling myself. Until that day, I'll never fear death. I love and miss you with all my broken heart.

I understand your pain!
by: Anonymous

I lost my mother November 19th, 2012 while I was away in college. i didnt get to see her before she left this world, i didnt get to tell her how much I loved her and missed her. She was sick since i was in 6th grade and now Im in my senior year of college. She fought for her life for a very long time. I try to comfort myself with the thought that she is no longer suffering but this pain is worse than I could have ever imagined, and youre right, not everyone is going to understand this pain until they lose their mother. I pray for your strength and the pain that I know you are feeling!

I'm so sorry for your lose
by: M

I too lost my mom a little over a year ago. Wish there was some kind of magic potion to take away the pain. Not sure if it'll ever truly go away. We just have to keep moving forward and be thankful for the time that we had with our Moms. There's nothing I can say that would make you feel better just know its okay to be sad and miss her immensely. Also always remember she'd want you to be happy. My deepest sympathy

I lost my dad on DEC 5 2011 to a and my mom
January 26,2012 @ 3:00 am. Both there deaths
Hont me everyday. I tryed to carry out both
For there wishes. Mom had ovarian cancer but
Her doc told use she was cancer free. After dad
Died in dec mom just went down and I took
Her to many docs and there all said the same
Thing .no cancer that she was just grieving
Herself to death over dad. I just couldn't beleave
That my mom would give up that easy because
She was a fighting and she loved her kids. So I desided to take leave from work and try to save my MOMA .
I tryed to make sure she eat and drank . But there was still
Something I felt was wrong. But I didnt wont to beleave it. My mom called me late Monday night and say " I wont to go fishing" my mom never like to fish.but I got up early Tuesday morning and my oldest sister HELPED me take her and mom was the Frist one to catch a fish. She was so happy and so was I . I have it on video and I watch it a lot and I have not shared it with many people . The fishing day was on a Tuesday and my MOMA passed away the next Tuesday .she had got sick on the wedsday after we went fishing. I got scared thet thurday night because something bad had changed with mom. So I took her to the ER and the doc told me less then 5 hours my mommy had intestine, bladder, lung, cancer.I'm the 7th child out of 9 children and I also Lived no more then 3 miles from my dad & Mom. They were my life. That's all I ever
Knew is taking care of them and I would do It all over again.. But know I'm just feel lost with out them. I have a great husband and a 14 year old son and 25 year old daughter . But everyday I ask myself did I give up on my mom and dad? I've went back to work but some days I have to leave because I'm crying do bad I can't work. But I'm trying everyday harder to get better. But the pain in my heart is about to kill me.

I know how you fee too!
by: Ilana

I lost my mother to Ovarian Cancer a year a half ago. She died five months after her diagnosis. Not a day goes by when I don't think about her. You feel like a part of you is gone that you can't get back. I'm here for you if you would like to talk. My email is mom2jared@netzero.com.

I Know How You Feel
by: Anonymous


My Dad died on October 2, 2011, just 14 days ago, so I can definitely relate to how you feel about losing your Mom in August.
My Dad had a bad back and at this point, they think he might have been given too many pain medicines or a bad combination of medicines that led to his death. At least he went in his sleep.

Just like you, I don't feel that anyone else understands how I feel. I am also trying to keep myself busy because when I slow down, the pain is just awful.

All day today I just kept thinking that I will never see my Dad again, sitting in his favorite chair, watching football. It is so hard to comprehend.

I lost my mother 11 years ago........I feel her loss everyday....it never goes away but it does get easier to think about her and the wonderful relationship we had. Now I can laugh at the the good times we had together instead of cry when I look at her picture. I'm so sorry for your loss...I know how deep it hurts...
Take care
