I lost my Mom - Wed, 11/13/13 1:08 PM
I haven' been posting much lately because I've been with my Mom.
 
I lost her last night.  My beautiful Mommy is gone.
 
I'll be back in awhile, I just don't know when.  I'm a basket case.
 
My Mommy, Bernice Steinberg
 
She was the best and i don't know how I can live without her.

My heart goes out to you Mar.  I'm very fortunate that both my folks are still alive and in relative good health.  But I know they're both getting "up there" and frequently think about how empty my life would be without them.
 
So sorry for your loss.  Stay strong.

Remember that a mother's greatest legacy is the wonderful children she raised.  I'm sure she was very proud of you.  Sorry for your loss.

Mar, I share your loss as I lost my father27 years ago and now Mamaw Smith is 92.  She is still sharp and gets around with assistance, works a bit in the garden and I have coffee with her each morning at 5:00AM.  I always call her before I go next door and I always an anxious when she does not answer the phone.  I know that one morning when I call, she will not answer..  I have thought a thousand times how I would respond.  I am sure that I will be the first to find her,   Call my brother?  Call my daughter?  Have a few drinks?  hell I do not know.
 
Mar, I share your grief in advance and I am so sorry.

Mar, I lost my Mother 15 years ago, I see her frequently in dreams. She is alive, funny, loving, all she was when alive, the dreams are reality when I'm asleep. I hope you have many wonderful times with your Mommy, from now on. It's not much help, but it does help me, a lot! A Hail Mary from me for you.

Mar,
I am so sorry for your loss  and,  having lived through this, I know how deep your pain is.  I will always remember how wonderful your Mother's Days meals were that you prepared for her.  It will take a long time and you will be in my prayers.

Mar, sorry for your loss, stay strong.
I recently moved next door to my elderly parents and dread the day that no one responds to my "Yoo-Hoo" when I open the back door to check on them.

Marlene, my condolences on your loss. I lost my mother a decade ago and my father several years before that, and I can tell you that , while it may not seem like it now, it does get better with time. Stay strong and always cherish the good memories.

My condolences Mar.

I'm certain your Mom was really proud to have you as a daughter...and it's easy to see that she was a fantastic & fun Mom. She'll be with you always.


You're in my prayers.

Thank you, everyone.

The funeral was Friday and friends and relatives have kept me busy.  I'm ready for some peace and quiet.

Mom and I were very close and emptiness in my heart hurts.  Although Mom was 86 and not well, I never dreamed I would lose her.  I wasn't ready.  Guess I'd never be ready.

Knowing I have friends all over the world makes me smile.  Smiles help.
 
Thank you, all of my friends.
