I lost my mother last tuesday september 14, 2010. she was 86 years old. My father died 11 years ago. I miss my mother so much. Its like a big part of me left with her. I know my loss is very recent but how long will it hurt me. I think about her everyday and i visit her grave everyday. I want her to be here with us. My siblings and i took care of her from day one when she got sick. we kept her at home as she requested. I know time does heal but how long.
