Missing my mother

by Alysa
(Milwaukee, WI)

It's been a little over a month now since my moms passing. She died shortly before 8pm on Thursday, June 5th. She was on her way home from my house when she suddenly veered off the side of the road. She struck a utility pole and then a tree flipping her car. She died at the scene of the accident. I had no idea of the news until I was awoken at 2am the next day. When I saw the accident reported on the news, it then really became clear to me. She was gone. Just like that. This has been an experience that has forever changed me. I have never endured such pain in my life. The stages of grieving have been extremely hard on me. All I can do is go on though. When you lose your mother, you lose a part of yourself. I am fortunate to have spent the last few hours of her life with her. My 1 year old daughter was the last one to kiss her before she walked out of my house that night. We believe the accident was caused from a medical emergency. Possibly a stroke. We will never know exactly why or how....At only 61 years old, she was taken too soon. She will be forever missed.

Missing my mother
by: Doreen UK

Alysa I am sorry for your loss of your Mother to a sudden death. She was still so young to die. One just doesn't know when their time will be up. Life is so fragile. Even getting into a plane will leave many people feeling nervous. So many deaths occurring every day and so many fractured lives. Grief is something that is going to be with us forever on such a grand scale like we have never known. I worry about my family all the time. I couldn't bear to lose anyone else. I lost my husband of 44yrs. 2yrs. ago to cancer and I worry when my daughter goes on vacation. I can't rest till I know she is safe. I worry when she drives. One just doesn't know what can happen. I lost my mother to a heart attack 11yrs. ago and it took me 9yrs. to recover from grief. To lose a close person as a mother is such unbearable pain. The best way forward is TAKING ONE DAY AT A TIME. I still can't look ahead of today. Don't try to be so brave and act as if you are coping. If you find yourself struggling, you can see a grief counsellor for support.
