And not a day go's by that I don't think of her or miss her.I was there holding her hand as she took her last breath and I thank God for letting me be there. To hold her hand when she left us and closed her eyes to be with the Lord.

Lost my mother to cancer
by: Doreen England U.K.

Dear Shandona
I am sorry for your loss of your mother to breast cancer. Your mother fought hard to fight this disease but often one can only fight so much and then the battle is over.
I lost my husband to cancer 5 weeks ago. He died on 5th May 2012 and was buried on 25th May 2012. Steve had lung cancer MESOTHELIOMA Lung cancer caused by working with asbestos. Steve fought this for 3 years 39days. I was with him when he drew his last breath and it was heartbreaking to see that lifeless body and the one I loved for 47 years was gone. Cancer is a curse of a disease and ruins more lives each day. It is hard to recover from the loss of a loved one as the grief is great and is a long battle to cope with. Each day loses its meaning as we struggle to overcome our loss and move on. You will see your mother again and this time it will be in a world where there will be no more sorrow, no more pain, no more cancer, no more suffering because these will all be consumed. We are only passing through this world with the promise of a new world to come where we will be reunited with our loved ones. Hold onto this.

My Mom My best friend and mentor
by: D Truesdale

Sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. I too just lost my Mom who was my best friend and mentor. I loved her dearly. She suffered from alzehemiers diease and died from complications in the severe stages of the diease on May 30, 2012. I didn't make it the nursing home in time to see her pass, however the evening before I did visit with her and sat beside her bed to comfort her. We were told in early May that she didn't have six months to live if she didn't perk up. I miss her so much I was her primary caregiver before she went in the nh and responsible person when she resided there. She taught me everything I know. She was a loving, kind, and hard working woman. So full of life before the disease struck her. It just seems so unreal that she is not here for me to see again, however she is in a better place no more suffering from that dreadful disease. Praying for all who are going through such a sad and difficult time as this.
