Yes Laurie it's me! I'm sorry my memory is horrible, aren't you Ricks wife? You can contact me at DaMom44@aol.com. Please get in touch. How did you find me here? Looking forward to hearing from you. I hope Aunt Ivadell is alright. Nancy
I so understand how it is to lose your mom, and the way she passed was so horrible. As the time goes by, it gets easier not to cry everyday. You have your moments, but somehow you get stronger. My mom died in March of 2006, so it has been awhile for me. I saw her (she lived in Seattle where I grew up, but I haven't lived close for over 25 years) for her 88th birthday that year in February. I took two of my four children to see her. My 13 year old son and 18 year old daughter. She was being cared by hospice, and we knew that something would happen we just didn't know when. The day of her birthday we had a big party for her with all of her life long friends and our small family. She rallied that day, talking, smiling and all the things she hadn't done in weeks. My daughter fixed her hair and she looked like the classy lady that she always was. We had to come back here to Chicage, and telling her goodbye was the worst thing I've ever done. I knew that I'd never ever see her again. I didn't want to walk out that door. The night she died, my brother called me from her room and told me she wasn't doing well at all. I told him to put the phone up to her ear. I told her that I loved her and that she could go now if she wanted. Then I told her to "say hi to Dad for me" That was the last thing I ever said to her.
I come here to this site for the same reason you do. I talk to her here. It makes me feel better. You can e-mail me anytime here. Have you checked to see if there is any support groups in your area? There are a lot of people just like you that are hurting just like you. That always seems to help just to talk about your mom to someone else. You will think of really funny stuff and actually can laugh about it. Take care and write here often. Just let it all out, none of us mind at all! Sincerely Nancy
I dont know who talk to. Nov. 24, 2008 my mom and her husband were killed in a house fire when their house burnt down. We are still waiting to hear from the coroners office if my mom died in her sleep from the carbon monoxide. Her husband was found and died in the ambulance.I miss talking to her, miss her voice, her comforting thoughts, her laughter and support. Although I am in my 50's I just cant get over losing my mom. I use Legacy guest book to talk to her.
