To my Mother, My best friend, the ultimate optimist. I miss you.

by Dena

My Mom passed away on Thanksgiving Day from Lung cancer. She never told me me of her diagnosis. The doctors did.I feel she did not want me to worry. She knew for one month before she died. I don't know how she kept it from me. We were so close. We talked on the phone maybe 2 or 3 times a day just whenever. We were together every weekend. I loved her so much. We never fought. We had a disagreement from time to time but we never let that come between us. She was my best friend. She was in the hospital for 2 weeks having test done and she wouldn't let me come and see her I knew it was serious when she didn't want me to visit or to believe the Doctors. I wish she could have talked to me about it because we were so close but she did what she felt she had to do. She was so strong. That was her way. She had so many struggles in her life up until the the day she died. She never felt sorry for herself and she was so forgiving I don't know how with what she went through but she was. I miss her so much before. We brought her home for two days before she passed. I'm do glad we did because she hated being in that hospital she was
angry and my mother was never a bitter or resentful person about anything. She wanted out of that hospital.
How do you begin to get over such a loss.
I know it has only been around three months but the pain is so bad,
. I have been told it will get easier.
Maybe one day I can remember my Mother with sheer joy but for now my heart is too sad.
