The Greatest Mom In the World

September 2, 2009, I held her hand and told her that she could go to God and I was going to keep holding her hand.  She died an hour later, I was still holding her hand.  She stopped eating a month ago from complications of breast cancer.  I was her only daughter.   I called her three times a day and saw her twice a week.  I loved her more than anything.  She was my hero.  She will always be my hero.  She was the most incredible human being.  She was 83.  The word impossible was not in her vocabulary.  She was amazing.

I don't know what to do now.  Every night I get this overwhelming need to talk to her and call her like I did every night and now I can't and I don't know what to do.  The fact that I can't and never will is too much for me.

I don't know how to comfort you..sending my hugs.i feel all the same about my mom.she was the gem of a lady.Time cannot heal all wounds dear Tugten.

I called my mom everyday after the kids went to school. Most of the time I'd just go hang out watch TV with her. She died was gone in a bl<x>ink of an eye. My father sold the house and dis-connected the phone. I still call the number just to hear it ring. We had that number for 45 years.

I know your pain and don't know what to do about it either
