My mother was an angel

by colleen donaldson

My mother was the most beautiful person I could have ever known. In spite of all the hardships she went through in her life,she never failed to laugh and sing. She loved to sing and she also loved to dance.
When we were children, my brother and myself, along with my mom would dance to Lawrence Welk every sunday.

The months prior to her death, she would always tell me how much she loved us. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her pride and joy and she felt so blessed to have them.

The whole family including grandchildren and great grandchildren were there a couple of days before she died.

I will never forget; it was about a day before she died,she put her arms around me and told me how much she loved me and then she started to cry.I tried so hard to be brave for her, my heart was breaking. We lost the most beautiful angel,the one who loved to sing, laugh, and dance.

My mother was an angel
by: Doreen U.K.

Coleen I am sorry for your loss of your mom. What a lovely experience you had with your mom and how happy you all seemed to be. You mom seemed to nurture you all so well that her loss will have created a huge VOID in all your lives. It is so good to grow up in a happy environment. It is so very hard when this type of life stops and is no more because you have lost a very important person from your life that made living fun and enjoyable. This will affect your grief more. It will be more painful. You will realise how much you have lost when you lost your mom.
Your mother will have left you a good legacy to emulate her life and you will always feels as if she is near. I Pray for God to Comfort you all as a family and give you His Peace.

I am sorry for your loss. I understand how you feel. I am the Youngest of ten and we lost our Beautiful Mom on January 25 2013. I will never forget the way my Mom held my face looked into my eyes and said "you know i Love you very very much". although she told me she loved me every day this time she knew the end was near, this was only 2 days before she passed. Your Mom lives on and Is stil singing and dancing. She wanted you to know that she loved you and that she will always love you and be with you. Your story hits home as my Mother also went through a very rough life and was still and Angel. I pray for your strength and remember our Angels are now in Heaven where they will greet us one day as we join them for Eternity.

An angel gained
by: Kristin

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear mother. She sounds like a wonderful person who lived life to the fullest. the most important thing about life is our relationships, and your mother appears to have succeeded in life through her loving relationships. Know that you have not lost an angel... you have gained one. Even though she was your earthly angel when you spent time with her here, she is now your heavenly angel that is with you wherever you go... forever! You can always talk to her know, and if you are still and concentrate she will communicate back with you, just keep your eyes and mind open. Take it one day at a time and let her memories bring happiness back into your life. My prayers are with you.
