Miss calling and visiting her

by Gary

My mom was 87 when she died 3 months ago. She had cancer for 4 years but lived a good life. She lived with my brother who was a good son and care giver. I would call every day and visit her often. The best part of our visits was that we were a family. It was like life stood still and I had the my mother and brother just like when I was a kid. It was a very comforting feeling that you only get from family. She loved rides in the car and eating out at chain restaurants. She declined and had to be hospitalized. She died after being in the hospital for just one week. She had a good life, she lived to 87 and I have no regrets just fond memories. The reason I'm on this web site is simple. I'm depressed and miss her very bad. Life has not been the same and I think of how life will be without her and it hurts. I wonder what Thanksgiving and Christmas will be like without her. She was our center focal point and nothing mattered as much as her. From what I've read I guess this is normal but I'm here to say it hurts and we are not alone. God bless everybody who has lost a loved one.

You will hear people say things like she lived a long life and such but that does not take the hurt that you feel away. Please come here often and write, it cleanses the soul and helps to share your feelings with those who really have been there. This is the one place that you can feel safe because we are fragile too. Read past post to know that you are never alone in your feelings.
