I lost my mom on August 19th. It was three months yesterday. I miss her so much. We were very close, all of my life. I am 46. She lived with my wife and I and our two children for the past 2 years. I have no regrets, except that things happened so fast, I never really got to say good bye. She had a heart attack August 16th, early in the morning. We did not relize what was happening or how serious things were. Within minutes of the ambulance arriving at the hospital, they had to sedate her and put her in a breathing tube. She died three days later, still in an induced coma. Her and I talked at length about this day and what she wanted as far as life support ect. That did not make things easier. I find that if I talk about her and. or what happened it seems to help me through. I have one sister, older than me, but I was mom's support and I was in charge of everything. Today is my sisters birthday, the first birthday shes had in 51 years without a phone call or card from Mom. Holidays coming up, we are preparing ourselves the best we can to make it thru. I hope my story helps you. Lets you know that you are not alone. If you would loke you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org or keep in touch here. I check my email more than I am in here. But I do like to share my story and hear about and from others who are also going thru this pain. Keep the faith!
I am very sorry for the loss of your Mom. I understand how you feel. I lost my Mom on August 28th of this year... Just know, that even tho the pain is raw rite now. You are never alone. This community (Legacy. com) and everybody else will get you thru this terrible time..
I am sure that it understandable that people from out of town, can sometimes not make it to their parents funeral. It is just going to be a grave site ceremony, nothing afterwards, that is the way my mom wanted it. I am so confused, I just need sometime to work it all out. Thanks.
I lost my mother today. She was 92 years old. She got a virus two months ago, she fought the virus, but she had a stroke. I took my son and daughter in law to visit her in the hospital two weeks ago. She could not open her eyes, eat or speak. I live in ottawa, ontario and my mom lived in Toronto. It was difficult to visit her and now I have the funeral. I really need advise on this. Her funeral is on Wednesday, she paid and had it all taken care of. I suffer from anxiety disorders and feel that I just can't go there. There is also her relatives, they are wealthy and not nice people. When I went down two weeks ago, they did not offer to pick us up, offer a place to stay etc. I feel that I can visit my mother anytime and pay respects to her. What do you think?
