My Mom was so incredible. Unconditionally loving always.
Hi, Well I recently lost my mom. She was 71 years old. I knew when she got sick that her death would be something that would take me forever to get over. She was my mentor, my best friend, my confidant, my hero. I cannot remember a time in my life when I could not talk with her no matter what the topic and always feel blessed to have her. She always made me look at myself honestly.
I was very blessed to spend her last days by her bedside and talk, laugh and cry with her. My last night with her, I was sleeping on the couch next to her when I heard her call out my name. It woke me out of a dead sleep. I yelled out "Mom". But she was asleep. See, she had not been able to talk since the day before. The same night before this happened. I had all the grandchildren talk to her on the phone and tell her whatever they needed to. She could not respond, but I know she heard them.
After she called out my name I could not sleep. So I sat next to her on the bed and started telling her how much i loved her and that it was okay for her to go be with God. Shortly after that her breathing began to slow down. I called my sister I was afraid to have her die with just me alone and dad was asleep. Shortly after my sister arrived my dad got up. I said, Dad it is time. So me and my sister went outside and she died holding my dads hand. Beautiful way to go. I miss her so much it hurts me to even talk out loud about it. I do not feel like anyone truly can understand what it is like to lose someone so close unless they have experienced it themselves so i find difficulty in letting out my emotions. Thank you for this site.
