I've Lost My Best Friend

by Barbara
(Akron, OH)

My mother was the sweetest, kindest, funniest person I have ever known. She died on January 7, and I find myself having trouble breathing as I type this. The tears are very near. How do I go on without the person who made everything ok? How do I ever enjoy a drive in the country or planting a flower without her? I took care of her for the past 10 years as her health grew worse. It was a privilege, and she told me that the past 10 years were the best of her life, even with her illnesses. Now she's gone. The house is so quiet. Her little dog walks from room to room looking for her. I know this heaviness in my soul will ease one day, but today all I know is that I miss my mama.

I can relate
by: Mike R.

I feel the same way about losing my Mom, she was my best friend, confidant, and biggest champion. I cry every day since she passed the evening before her 72nd birthday in August 2011...I was coming to see her and take her to a bingo game to celebrate her birthday that weekend, but we found her dead on her birthday. But she is no longer suffering, she died how and where she wanted (at home), and she went very quickly and peacefully. But I just don't know how to go on without her. I muddle through my daily life, and as soon as I have a second to think, I am almost inconsolable. I am just so sad and depressed I doesn't feel like it will ever end.
