Just lost my Mom...

by Kimberly

Heaven gained a most beautiful angel on Feb. 20, 2012. I miss her so very much. She was so full of life, laughter and love. As mother's go, she was always fiercely protective of me and my sister and brother, but yet she always encouraged us to stand up for what we believed in and never settle for less than what we deserved. She loved my father, her husband of 47 years who stayed by her side right till the end. Mom was diagnosed with lung cancer 9 months ago. She said from day one she would fight, but we also knew it was going to be a tough fight. She went through multiple rounds of chemo and radiation and her body weakened as the cancer spread. She had a can-do attitude, but as the disease progressed, the light in her eyes started to fade and it became apparent we would lose her soon, but we weren't prepared to let her go. I am thankful the last words I told her were, "I love you" and she said she loved me. It doesn't seem real, like it's a dream. I know she's gone, but I feel she isn't. My sister feels the same, it's like she's just at the hospital and will come home, but we know she's not coming back. Wishful thinking I suppose..I lost my best friend and my biggest cheerleader that day. I just feel lost...

Lost my mom too soon
by: Bruce

I lost my mum Friday March 9. She went peacefully after three weeks of radical whole -wash brain radiation,and 4.5 years of breast cancer. She was a comlpete spitfire until the day before. The day she passed, she (Faye) waited for all of us to say I love you. She responded in-kind. After she said her last "I love you" to me,she pretty much shut down. No more talking - just sharp shallow breaths until my sister said that she needed to know that we'd all be right. She took her last breath right then. It was so sad and so relieving at the same time. Now I am trying to take care of my dad who doesn't know how to run a toaster! Thanks for reading this. I am so sad - Visitation is tomorrow and the Funeral is Thursday.

loss of a parent
by: Anonymous

I lost my mother Oct 2000 from Breast cancer, my brother in oct 2009 lung cancer, my father feb 20, 2012 from cardiac arrest. I have lost my only family I know,I was with all of them when they took their last breath, heavan is a brighter place with your mom and my family. Now we are left to live with the loss but also at the same time left with a lot of wonderful memories and people to tell them to. My father touched alot of lives and helped them grow to become mature adults,help people to accept who they are and not to let others bully them.I have a harder time accepting my dads loss then my bro,mothers because i am his biologicle daughter.I read about grief,and im sure it will hit me someday but im so busy in my life it hasnt had its open door yet. god bless you and your family, im here if you would like to talk.
