    My mom passed away last Friday

    after losing a protracted battle with adeno carcinoma. She was 72 and is survived by myself and my brother, as well as her ex husband, my father. The most sorrowful part of this is that she will not get to see her grandaughter grow up or attend her first birthday in July. Mom...

    Dear Mom, This is your son.

    I have never lived with you a day in my life, yet you've always been in my life. I you know how excited I felt when I got to see you every Sunday when you would come to visit me and my sister at my grandmas house. I realize I could not live with you due to your alcohol problems...

    At the holidays and birthdays (which she always

    remembered..even spouses) you could always depend on her to bring the chocolates and the home made pastries. You could also depend on the well thought of gifts lovingly wrapped with her own special touches. Which we all ever so slightly took for granted. I miss you Mom. Whenever...

    May 15 is the day. It will be two years

    since the accident. Two years since the phone call. Every single day has been a struggle. The day my mom died, my daughter Eva was 3 months and my son was 5 days from his 2nd birthday. My kids - they are my strength, yet they are also my weakness. When I look at them, I know I...

    I wish I could have bought you flowers

    and painted you a picture like I used to every Mother's Day. Nothing compares to the love that swelled in my heart to see you tear up with happiness. I always tried my hardest to show you just how much I appreciated all that you've done for me, but I wish I had done more. I wish...

    been thinking a lot about her today.

    she was the kind of person who took care of things and put others before herself. she reminded everyone of birthdays and made sure everyone felt appreciated and loved. she worked hard all her life, and was better than i deserved.

    It Doesn't Get Easier

    I know people say only time heals the pain of losing someone, but it doesn't. I think about my mom all the time. Sometimes I spend a whole class at school remembering things about her, and thinking about her makes me feel depressed. I guess I handled it having my brother to...

    "The only reason for time is

    so everything doesn't happen at once." Albert Einstein I was not ready to let my mom go. I needed her to stay near me, show me how to nurture my new baby boy, watch him grow together. The day she died, time stood still.I miss you Mom.

    for 23 years now, but I still miss her greatly. She taught me that I could do anything I wanted to in life. She taught me to work hard toward my goal and I could achieve it. She was right.

    I am really worried about my mother.

    I'm worried that she will never be happy. I'm really upset to because she's a good person and so many people just use her. I really love my mum and wish things were different. I miss her so much as well and I can't remember the last time she was truly happy.
