My mother has past on..............

I knew this day was close but I'm not prepared. Yesterday my mother passed away
at 3:30. It has been a long night and I really need all your prayers. She had
six children, all of them living and 10 grand children and 16 great grandchildren.

What a wonderful mother she was; always quite and never raised her voice. I will miss her forever and carry her memories with me and remember all the talks we had.

I will need to take this time to be with my brothers and sisters to grieve.

thank you,
Anita

It so wonderful that you have so many syblings and children to help you through this difficult time.

Take care of yourself and surround yourself with love and feel the sadness and hurt and loss... each stage... then move on to the next... It really helps not to hold onto it.

We are always our mother's daughters. They live inside us in our memories that can never be erased. My mom has been gone for 9 years now and I still feel her love. This does not take away the sadness at your loss, but it makes you smile to remember that your mom loved you always. Peggy from PA

I lost my Daddy last April 24th to diabetes. Not unexpected, but not prepared- like you. I have decided you can't BE prepared for someone you love leaving you. It's awful. Truly. Even though I know where he is and who he is with, I miss him. And my mind tortures me occasionally with the memories of his suffering those last weeks in the hospital. I know he is now free from pain, but it shot all of us deep into it! I am so grateful I was there. All of us- a big family like yours'- 7 children, 28 grandchildren and 35+greatgrands. We miss him.
Grieve all you need. Keep busy. Write your memories. We started a family blog in Daddy's name and all could write their stories- we have laughed so much and cried. That has been a wonderful thing. No one takes the place of your mother and father. My sympathies are with you and hope you find comfort in all the wonderful memories and blessings.

I am so sorry that you have lost your mom. I know how hard it is even though we think that we are prepared,we never can fully understand the feeling of loss until it happens. My heart goes out to you with a hug.

Miss Laura Lu/RMS4291960 said...

Dear Blossom, I am so sorry for your loss. I have lost a younger sister and my father. It is so hard! I think they should start the tradition of wearing an armband when you're in mourning. One of the hardest things for me was just going out to the grocery store...to see life just going on as normal and you are hurting so deep inside and you don't feel normal at all! Wearing an armband would let people know to handle you with a little TLC! and let others remember that you never know what the people around you are going thru! God Bless you and your family!

Darla said...

Oh Dear Blossom, I know this feeling all too well. You are never prepared for the finality of it all even though it's expected. My heart swells with love and prayers for you and your family. Take your time love!!!

Heartfelt condolences on the passing of your mother. Tootsie told us of your loss. I said a prayer for you and your family for strength and peace in this trying time. Love and sympathy, Karen

momstheword said...

I am so sorry for the loss of your precious mom. I don't think we ever really get over the loss of a parent. I lost my dad last year and I still miss him. How can you not miss a parent?

At first you are numb and in shock. I remember thinking "I can't believe this is happening."

Give yourself the time you need to grieve and let people help you if they ask. People brought us meals and honestly, it was so nice not to have to worry about it.

Picket said...

Dear friend...I know there are no words that can ease the pain and loss you are feeling at this moment...I couldn't begin to image the loss of my mama....My heart and my prayers are with you and your family dear one.

Coloradolady said...

Blossom...I am so very sorry for your loss. It is never easy losing a loved one, but someone so very close is even harder. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sassy said...

I came over from Tootsie's blog and wanted to offer my condolences...I am very sad for you...obviously she was a great example for you from what I have noticed on your blog...you are very talented and look like an awesome homemaker...which she probably instilled great qualities in you...you will be in my thoughts and prayers....Love, Kayola {Sassy}
