lost my mom to illness

by Bianca Walker

im 17 i loss my mom to an illness she had since i was a baby. im the only child.she became was paralyzed my 8th grade year. we was forced to move in with my grandparents. in november she had her 8th brain surgery and she also suffered from silent seizures. she had a tube put in her spine and she had a bone disease. one night i was at my best friend house and i decided to come home because i got tired of sitting at my friends. so i came home were me and my cousin found my mom slumpt over in her hospital bed. at first we thought she was just playing and ignoring us like she always do. but as i got close and seen the look on her face. i knew she was not playing i ran outside and i had this feeling hit me. i dont really remember anything after that but i was hard because my mom was my best friend and she was all i had.i now live with my grandparents and i sit and watch my grandmother cry every day. its very hard to try to stay strong for everybody while you feel alone and invisible all the time. im now in my senior year and i am having a hard time without my bestfriend being here to help my celebrate this great year.

So sorry for your loss


I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. I too miss my mother and it was years ago. You are not alone in your grief, your grandmother is trying to get through the death of her daughter as you are trying to get through the unimaginable death of your mother. Grief is ever so personal, But know that we are here listening to you knowing the heartache as we grieve here too.

Your mom will be here in spirit and though it is not the same, just watch for the little signs that she is there all along. Watching over you, proud of you as you blossom into a beautiful young lady.

Your grandmother may cry from time to time even as time passes seeing you, so much of your mother in you. I wish you peace as you find your way through grief. It is a roller coaster of emotions that I would not wish on my worst enemy.

Please come here often even if it is only to read of others grief and know that you are not alone. We are here always, to listen to understand because we are going through our grief in our own ways as well...

Dear Lenora
by: geoffrey campbell

I am weeping after having read your letter. Dear Lenora! My Mother is my best friend too, but you do have another very best Friend, I think you know Who that is. If we could pull aside that curtain that hides from our finite minds and see what the future has, and why we suffer the loss of our best friend (Mama) we could then realize the saying,"All things work together for good to them that love the Lord." Your Mama loves God, and God loves your Mama with an infinite love, He saw the suffering, and He sees your deep sorrow. He will help you dear, dear Lenora. I am still weeping, but child, you are not an orphan, your heavenly Father loves you and feels your loss, as it is written, "In all of our afflictions, He is afflicted." I am praying for you, dear Lenora! Your caring friend in Scranton Pennsylvania
