View Full Version : My Mother Passed Away
02-06-2007, 06:19 PM
I sort of poped in at the opening here than got lost, not my intentions. I had to fly out the other week to see my mother on her death bed. I'm sure some of you may remember my Lo's featuring her. Its been strange getting used to the idea.. but I am ok
I blogged the story of her passing for any interested in reading.. tissues required.

I am so sorry my friend! I do remember the wonderful, courageous and uplifting layouts that your created as you shared her battle against cancer. I pray that you will be greatly comforted as you think about the life you shared with her and know of the love and care you have from your cyber friends here.
Blessings and great sympathy are yours!

I'm so sorry. Your story brought tears to my eyes. We lost my Dad a few years ago. He was in incredible pain and is heart was stopping but he was still fighting to stay with us. We also encouraged him to just let go that we would be alright. Sometimes I think it is just as difficult for those who are leaving us to let go of us as it is for us to let go of them.
We'll be here for you and thinking about you.

Oh no!! Ann!! What horrible news! And, yet, I'm am SO glad her suffering is gone. What a brave woman she was. And SO, SO lucky to have you for a daughter.
My heart is with you, Dear Friend. I pray for peace and comfort for you and your family. But, I'm sure you know that God is rejoicing that she has returned to be with Him. And, no doubt, she is happy, too. And, pain-free. And, she is with you, too, in your sorrow, with her arms around you.
MANY, MANY healing hugs to you, Nzingha.

First of all a great many healing hugs to you ! And thank you so very much for sharing your mother's and your story/journey with us - it was a very touching and couragous account of her last few days (I'm still crying). I am so sorry for your loss and grateful that nothing was left unsaid and that your mom's suffering is finally over.
And pretty soon it will be time for you to let go too and for somebody to tell you that it is ok to "surrender" and to grieve. When you can and do, be assured that your mother is with you and that we will walk along the way with you if and when you need us !

I'm so so sorry. I've lost my dad and sister to cancer and my mother fought it last year. I know it's tough to let go, for both sides. My sister didn't want to because of her daughter.
Hugs to you.

I just read your story and I am so sorry for your loss but I am very glads that you got those last beautiful moments with your mother. I will be saying prayers for you and your family, but I know that God is already there giving you the comfort and peace that you need.
Your story brought up alot of memories of when I lost my mother at 7, She wasn't sick or anything, and I have spent years remembering seeing her lying there in the hospital with all the machines keeping her alive. But none of that mattered to me all I saw was my mother and just wanted to take her home. They tried to explaine to me that she would never live without the machines because she could no longer eat by herself or do anything for herself anymore. I still didn't care I told them I would do it all for her if they would just let her come home. I didn't understant what brain dead ment all I knew is I wanted my mother. that is the last time I saw her and I have spent the last 26 years wishing I had just gotten one more chance to tell her how much I loved her and was so very glad she was my mother.
I am sorry I didn't mean to ramble on it just kinda came out. I guess what I am saying is I am so very glad that you had the time with your mother at the end. I would have loved to be able to say goodbye I think that makes it a tiny bit easier. I pray for you peace and compfort in this very hard time. and thank you so very much for sharing your story.
