Default The most difficult

In reference to the thread about Mark's mom - was this was such a touchy time of year for me - I lost my mother @ the age of 62 on July 20th 2 yrs ago so this was pretty difficult for me. But now we are looking at all the things we have been blessed with & are starting to relax a little.

I lost my precious Mother August 28 last year at the age of 66. It is just awful for me right now. I try to do the same though , and look at what I have been blessed with. I have 2 beautiful healthy kids, my health is good and I have a decent job. And, I have many wonderful memories of my Mom.

I lost my mom 13 years ago, she was 69. I still miss her so much, it was a sudden death, and I never got to say good bye....it still haunts me.

My mother is 87 and suffers from dementia. Since I live in California, I am fortunate enough that she is provided with an excellent conservator. She has always been a difficult woman, and he gets along with her so well.

My mom (74) was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. She is presently undergoing aggressive chemotherapy, in fact, I am taking her for round 2 tomorrow morning. She has done so much for me and my family, I dread to think of what life would be like without her. My sympathies to you Deb.

I lost my beloved mother in 1997 to colon cancer that had spread to her lungs. I miss her.

Whether you all realize it or not this post brightened my day. Not because of the grief which each of you feel in your losses, and my condolences for those, but by reminding me as I start this day that I am so very lucky to have my mother with me...and to be able to say she is truly, without a doubt, my very best friend. Thank you for the reminder not to take her for granted.

This is so true. My mom used to call me a million times a day (especially when we sat down to dinner!) how I miss those interruptions now. Sometimes when I look across the table @ Mark - I REALLY miss those interruptions (just kidding!)
