The ROCK of the family is gone!

by Kelly
(Plano, TX. USA )



My Mom has had Emphysema for years and just pasted away Sept. 18th 2012.
I lost my dad 8 years back and even though we were not close it hurt but nothing like losing my mom.
I am 43 years old and am feeling all alone even though I have two kids, a brother, a nephew, and lots of friends I am still feeling all alone.
I have read the stages of grief and I am back and forth with stage 1 and 2. Today I am having a bad day and sitting here at work wishing I would have stayed home.
I found this site and thought posting this for strangers to read might help me deal with this today. Like I said I have a lot of friends but a lot of times your friends saw what they know you want to hear.
My heart hurts and I want to get through all of the personal things my brother and I are taking care of now with my mom's home etc. so we can work on getting on with our lives.
For all here that has lost their mom I send prayers for healing up for you today!
Thank you for listing to me.

The ROCK of the family is gone
by: Pat J.Green Bay,WI

Dear Kelly,
I am sorry for the loss of your mother. I was 29 when I lost my mom, 36 years ago. She was my mother, but also my best friend. Even as a teeneager, she and I had a close relationship.
She died at the age of 50, after dealing with breast cancer for 11 years. I was 29 and had 5 children, my baby was 3 months old. I remember it like it was yesterday. My husband was my ROCK for me at the time. He had lost his dad to cancer 3 years ealier, so he understood what I was going through.
You will get beyond the grief, but you will never forget and you will keep her tucked safely in your heart.
I lost my husband of 46 years to a massive heart attack 15 months ago. He died June 27, 2011. Our 46th wedding anniversary was June 26th. It was 36 years on June 25,2012 that my mom died. There has to be a reason for this, my mom died the day before my 11th anniversary and my husband died the day after our 46th anniversary.
Our life is never the same after losing someone so close, but we learn to go on without them. Both of my parents are gone, my dad died 6 years ago in April. I grieved for him, as I did my mom. I had him in my life until he was 83. My husband was 67 when he died. I still cry for the loss of my husband. I get tears yet for the loss of my parents. We always ask why us? We don't understand how some live long lives and others are taken way to soon. Of course for many of us, we are never prepared for the death of a loved one. We just learn to accept and go on.
Gos Bless You! Talk to your mom. I talk to my parents and my husband all the time. It helps me deal with their loss.

So sorry for your mom being gone...
by: Linda J.

I know the many feelings you are feeling and my heart goes out to you and your family.

We lost our Beautiful, Delicate, Talented little mom (see my posting below on this page) exactly one month ago to a sudden and tragic death.

I still can't believe she is really gone...

I send you wishes of peace and healing to get through this...

Linda Jade
