my mother passed away in 1999, and not a day goes by that i still do not miss her. we were as close as a mother and daughter can be. i remember the night she passed the day before she told me have i ever told you that i love you more then life itself. i said yes mom i know. she was due to come home from the hospital the next morning but she passed away at 3am that night. the worst phone call i ever received. i think about her every day the pain never goes away losing your mother, but it will subside and make it a little easier to bear.

RE: Missing You Still Mom
by: Lynn McClure

Thank you for posting this... I'm so sorry for your loss.. Mine is much fresher, 3/5/13, but not any more intense for me than I'm sure yours was. It's good to know that in time the pain will subside... I know that grief is like an ocean, vast, deep, sometimes dark and with waves that come and go... I lost a husband of 28 years 13 years ago... I had finally gotten to a place of peace with that and now this.. Losing a spouse is difficult but losing my mom is SO much different... harder in some respects. She was my go to girl, my friend, my teacher, my nurterer and she championed all I tried to acheive. Just knowing I can't pick up the phone to hear her voice or send her an email to say I love you SO hard. It doesn't matter at what age you lose them... Mom was 82 and I am 62.. I still find myself waking in the middle of the night calling for mama... She chose me for her Power Of Attorney, she laid her life in my hands.. I know I and the doctors did everything we could to help her get better... God just had other plans.

So as I promised her I would take care of dad and that we would be okay she slipped away peacefully to go home. Now I am trying to take care of my 84 year dad who is not dealing with his loss very well, trying to grieve my mom and knowing that perhaps in a short time I will also be grieving my dad.

I guess I'm still angry that it turned out the way it did... I wasn't ready to say goodbye but I know I had no choice. I'm just missing her so and just wanting to hear her sweet voice for just a little while longer.. I still need her so much!!!!!
