Topic: Missing my Mom....

Today, October 8th would have been my Mom's 78th birthday.  I miss her so much.....sigh

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

Oh Cherbourg,

I feel for you so much. My Dad's birthday fell just 5 weeks after he passed away. It is so hard.

Thinking of you today, your memories and love for your Mum live on deep in your heart.

Re: Missing my Mom....

Thanks to you all!  One of the nurses I work with in the hospital met me at lunch carrying a slice of carrot cake.  She handed me a fork and said we had to eat cake to celebrate my mom's birthday.  She said we were celebrating a life well lived and the legacy she left of a loving daughter.

She made me cry but I thought it was one of the dearest things anyone has ever done for me.....

Pam, thinking of you and your mom.  You were so loving and considerate to her, I know that she is watching over you with pride. 

A very happy birthday to your mom,

Re: Missing my Mom....

Pam, what a very kind & sensitive gesture.  I remember when my dad died, my mum still wanted to celebrate their wedding anniversary; she said his death didn't stop them being married & she was celebrating the event which had occurred on that date.

Your mum was - & still is - very, very precious; I'd like to join in the celebration of her birth with you.

Happy Birthday!!
