Topic: my mom
I posted 10 days ago when my mother passed. I just wanted to share more information.
I still can't believe she is gone. It seems so surreal. I keep waiting for her to yell out that she is not sleeping, she is just resting her eyes.
Thank you for all your notes that you have sent out over the last week and a half. Your messages have been very helpful.
Her funeral was perfect. When we were discussing funeral plans with our social worker, she was expecting about 75 people. Over 300 people showed up. The funeral director has been a friend of 25+ years and said this was one of the most difficult services he has had to do. It was a perfect day. Luckily, I had a couple more sick days that I was able to use, so right now I am going to spend a couple days in jammies and just feel yucky before having to go back to work.
I thank you for all the support on this website...I really don't know how I would have made it through the last year with out you.
