I Lost My Beloved Mother To A Car AccidentMy parents were coming home from a vacation in FL. It was May 24, 2004 at 2:32 in the afternoon when I received th dreaded phone call. The person on the other end of the line to me to get to the hospital immediately. He told me my parents were in a very serious car accident. They needed the jaws of life to pry them out of the car. So I took the first flight from NJ (which is where I was living). I fainted when I saw her. How could my beautiful mother look this way? She was so pretty she had won beauty contests. And she was to be a vibriabrant 64 yo woman. After 3 days in the trauma unit, I took her off life support. Sh e did have an advanced directive. But how could I do this to her. She was my confidant and best friend. How could God take her so tragically away from me.I feel to this day that I killed her. I often wonder, only if..... I still struggle with this daily. On a brighter note my Dad did survive and we are now closer than ever!
