So soon

by Siobhan
(New York)

My mom passed away yesterday May 12. She had been in the hospital for over 50 days, eventually going to ICU and then the hospice floor. She lasted longer than the doctors or nurses thought she would. At 88years old she was a fighter and held on to the end. It doesn't seem real to me that she;s gone and I will never see her again. I am praying for strength to get through the nest few days of her wake, mass and burial. I loved her dearly and can't imagine never being able to speak with her or ever see her again. I will for ever be mourning her death, although I may be mailing on the out side, i will be crying on the inside.

My momma

Dear So Soon,

I lost my 69 year old momma on the same day you lost yours. The weight of my grief is sometimes overwhelming. I often don't know how to put one foot in front of the other. You manage to, but it's not easy. Although her wake and internment were one of the hardest things I've ever experienced, the days that now follow are harder. I feel like I will feel this way forever and the hole in my heart won't ever be filled. From what I've read, we need to allow the grief in. To feel it and express it before we can begin to heal. I'm not sure how long this will take but I need to hope that one day it will be easier and I'll be able to speak of her without breaking down. May God Bless us both as we mourn the loss of our mothers.

Be assured, whether you believe in God or not, there is an afterlife and you will see your beloved Mother again.

Be a little patient with yourself. We are only passing through this realm. We come naked and poor and we ALL leave the self same way.

This is only a short journey. God will see to it that your Mom somehow connects with you. It may be a dream...or a certain noise may happen...whatever it is, you'll know when it happens...and it will.

In the meantime, be STRONG,{ that doesn't mean don't cry }. Be strong means KEEP THE FAITH...and if you don't have faith, well then, GO GET IT !!! It's the ONLY weapon that works. Pray and believe.
