Default The passing of my Mom...

....I just wanted to post a notice that my Mom passed away on Friday, February 4, one day after her 74th birthday.

The reason I am posting here is just to thank everyone, unknown friends that I have come to know, for the nice posts & emails of support during the difficult time when she was ill. Support means a lot from people you know, but also means a lot from people I have never met.

Thank you again, and be glad to know that she also enjoyed a wonderful cruise a few years ago that my sister & I took her on!

You can also be sure we wil be raising a special remembrance toast to my Mom on our next cruise!

Our condolences Jean. It's tough to let go but we have to so just remember all the great memories that you have. The sense of loss will never go away, but it does get a bit easier to deal with it over time.

Jean, your mom passed away the day before my mom, and it was one week after her 75th birthday. I too received lots of kind words, prayers and support from my CruiseMates friends over the months my mom was ill, and I will be forever grateful for their caring and love. I wish to extend the same to you, and hope you have many happy memories of your dear mom.

Jean,

My prayers are with you.
My wonderful Mom left this earth five years ago this April. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her and miss her.

In most instances, no one loves us like our Mom, whether we are good or bad, happy or sad.

Cherish your memories, for they are a prescious gift that gives us strength.

As Donna said last week, your mom is just gone from your sight for now. You will meet her again and in the meantime, you have a special guardian angel.

Jean,
I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. It took awhile for me to get past the memories of mom sick in the hospital but once I did it was comforting to think of all the good times we had together.
Hugs and hearts and prayers to you and your family.

Very sorry to hear about your loss....for me also, early this morning, my mom passed away too. You are just never ready for this to happen, I'm still in shock and have a million things to do in the next day or two...

Jean, I am so sorry. Your mom passed on my late sister's birthday. It's still a new sensation to refer to her that way, a fresh gash in the world. Just know that you have company and comfort.

Donna, you also have my condolences. Few things are as shocking as the death of parents and siblings, regardless how long you have to prepare yourself.

Thank you all, my unseen friends, once again for your nice notes of sympathy. My condolences also to everyone here who has lost a loved one. You still miss the person terribly even if you know their time has come...

So sorry for you Rollerdonna (loved seeing the pictures of your Mom!) and you too Brenda, and also Angela, and Seahunks on the passing of your sister.

And Donna, sorry for your loss and what you have to deal with in the upcoming days. Be sure to take advantage of any support that you have, and perhaps consider a group if you need to. I hope you rmemories sustain you through this difficult time.

Thanks again to my unseen "family".
