First Anniversary of Mom's Death

Posted on May 14, 2011 at 1:22pm 0 Comments

The first anniversary of my mother's death was on May 2. 


I took the day off of work and let a balloon go off of the pier.  However, it ended up under the dock.  I don't know if it made it to its destination, which I was hoping out to sea.  I don't know what happened.  I had nothing but good intentions, but it didn't turn out that way. 


How does one mark a death anniversary?  I didn't feel much like working because I knew that I could break down any second. …

Hi Ilana--yes I am hanging in there! Seems like one has no choice in the matter! That is what life gives you.

I have kind of a duality (dichotomy) going on with my Mom who passed just 3 and half weeks ago now! One part of me knows what happened but the other part is still "waiting"----probably for my Mom to come home! I have lived with both parents for years but did move to vacation house this past summer.

I still feel like the whole thing is a dream or something unreal! I hope some time will help. It does not seem as horrible now! Maybe a touch better. All I can say to you is hang in there. I do dread the holidays coming- my mom loved Christmas so I cannot imagine how I will feel. I will take it day by day and so will you I guess.

Regards Frank.--Please reply if you want!
