My Mom

This is the hardest thing I have ever had to write.

Saturday evening at 6PM my Mom passed away. She had been ill for quite some time and now she is at peace. My Mom, my best friend. I am so lost.

I have cried for you all day. Don't be lost, sweet friend. You know how much pain she was in and now, no pain, no problems, only happiness and peace. I wish you peace, for you were the best daughter any mother could ask for, the best friend you could ever want.
I love you, dear friend and pray for your loss.

Kathy, what can I say? My heart goes out to you. You know you did the best for her and she knows that too and now she is in a better place with no pain and suffering. It was much better that she was able to pass at home where she could feel your love than be in a nursing home where many other daughters would have put her months ago! Time will heal your heart.....but know that we are all here to help you get through it. If you don't know about it, ILCS has lit candles for you. Those are the ones that only last for 48 hours.......

Kathy -- My heart goes out to you. Condolences on the loss of your Mom, your best friend. You can know that you did as much for her as you could, and did the very best. ((hugs))

Dear Friend you were God's best gift for her. Your Mom maybe physically gone but she lives in you. She is as much a part of you as you are of her. I am sure she will forever be your guardian angel. The pain of your loss is deep and devastating but all is not lost. You are strong, bright, and will get through this. It will not be easy but you have not had it easy. If there is anything I can do please let me know.

Hugs

Kathy, your mom is now an angel in Heaven, I'm sure she's watching over you from above now. This is a sad time but eventually you'll see only the good memories will come back to you.

Hugs and prayers on your way.

I'm so sorry for your loss - my friend and I have both lost our moms - his more recently than mine and we still think about them everyday - you're only truly gone when no one remembers you, and your mom will be remembered for a loooooong time.
