My name is Lynda, and I lost mom a little over a months ago. I know that is to soon to even think about it getting easier to cope with but, the loss of mom has really taken a hard hit on me.
Mom would have been 81 on the 25th of this month, and she was my best friend in life. Losing mom was like losing the biggest part of my heart.
Mom passed due to Dementia. ( a ugly disease ) I pray that no one would ever suffer from this.
Mom only had Dementia for about 6 years and she declined quickly from day one.
I feel so lost without mom, and even though I know she is whole and healthy again in heaven I wish she could come back to me.
Mom was cremated at the cremation soc. of Il and it hurts that I cant even afford to bring to bring her home where she belongs. I know in time I will be able to but right now I feel as if I have let her down. This sure makes the grieving process harder.
Well I know I have talked to much, but I need all the support I can get right now. My heart and prayers goes out to everyone that has lost there Mothers.
God Bless,

Hi sweetie, first let me say that I made a typing mistake and the sight wouldnt let me fix it. Mom passed 4 months ago and not 1 month ago.
Never the less it hurts like it was yesterday, and I also am having a really rough time dealing with it. I want mom back so bad, yet I know she is with God and she isnt sick anymore.
Mom passed from Dementia, and I was her care provider the whole time. I refused to put her in a home although honestly there were a couple times that I doubted my ability to deal with the disease, and considered finding her a home.
Mom was my best friend in life, and always loved me and my sister unconditionally and gave us her all.
This year the holidays seem so bleek and I wish I could just sleep through them. Im sure you understand the feeling.
Im 60 years old and people tell me all the time that I should be able to deal better and that mom is so much better off and not suffering anymore.
Mom was going to be 81 in sept of this year but passed in july. You are so right when you said that life goes to the pitts, because I believe that our mothers are our whole life. I wish that a lot of other people would realize just how much there mothers are precious while they are alive, so that they would understand how people like us feel when we lose them.
I would love to keep in touch, as maybe we can help each other get through the holidays, and if you wouldnt mind, my sister Sheree would love to join us. She lives in Nevada and it was just as hard on her as it was me.
If you want to write to me in my regular email, please feel free to.
Take care my friend, and we will get through this somehow because our mommas would want us to.
