    Mom

    It's been a rough weekend. After 4 weeks of struggle with her illness, my mother slipped away last night. My dad and one sister were with her. In one way it is a relief--she is no longer struggling and is free of pain, and in another way the grief has started all over again. We will be heading to San Diego on the 22nd for the funeral and for Christmas (plans were made long ago for us to be there for Christmas, knowing Mom's health was failing). It feels so far off in the future, but my brother who lives in Florida also needs to be there and had trouble finding flights that would work. Christmas will not be easy this year, that's for sure.

    Mom had a good life--she was 86 and was much loved. We will miss her tremendously. We can reflect back on good memories and give thanks for the life she had.

    I want to thank you all for your prayers, encouragement and support during these past 4 weeks. It has meant so much to me. For those of you who sent PMs, thank you as well. I love you all!

    Martha

    My heart cries for you Martha. I lost my mother 7 years ago to emphysema. I would give anything to have her back but would never want to see her suffer as she did before she passed. Rest knowing she is no longer in pain. God bless you and your family.

        Sending special prayers, Martha. Losing a loved one is never easy. Watching them suffer is more difficult. Rest assured your dear Mother is in God's care now.

          I lost my mom the day after Thanksgiving in 2000. It may not seem like it now, but it does get easier as time passes.

                My heart goes out to you Martha as well as to your family. She's next to God now without pain, in Heaven with other loved ones. Like many others, my Mom passed on 12 years ago on the 21st of December. This will be the hardest, mixed Christmas for your family. Know that all of us will be praying for you and yours.

                Much love, Ruby and Don

                  Martha you will be in my thoughts and prayers. I lost my mom a year ago and miss her every single day, and my 19 year old grandson this past July. Holidays are still the hardest, this is the first Christmas without my grandson. I lost my dad in 1972..my heart aches for you. And yes, time does heal..but it's still hard.

                    My heart weeps for you and your family. Although it is very difficult for you all, know that things are no longer difficult for her. She is free of all pain and discomfort and rests in the Lords loving arms.

                    I always feel that you can know a parent if you know their children. Knowing you through this forum, I know she was a wonderful woman. Eighty-six years - what a legacy. Many memories for you and your family to share forever. In that way she will never be gone. If you have a digital one, how about sharing a photo of your sweet mom so we might know her better too.

                    Praying that your grief will pass quickly into loving memories.

                    Hugs,
                    ;)Nancy

                              Martha, I'm so sorry for your loss, but relieved that your Mom is out of pain and suffering. Take comfort in the good life she had and the knowledge that she's in God's loving arms. My prayers are with you and your family and although Christmas will be difficult, it can be the beginning of healing for the family. Hugs, Barb
