Topic: one year ago today Mom passed

My Mom passed one year ago today.  I miss her terribly.  She was such a friend and companion.  I did not want to let her go.  I searched for anwers on this site for help, I sent scans and her medical history to other hospitals for help, but the cancer won.  It was too much for her.  She didn't want to live only for stents, getting chemo, having tests, not being able to eat, going to doctors.  She was so healty prior to the illness it was to accept for her and me.  I had wonderful times with her before the illness.  I thank God for this.  I continue to read all the posts every few days.  I try to send my condolences, but some days I read, and cannot reply because of sadness.   To FormyDad and Marco and to all who have recently posted my heart goes out to you.  I am sorry.   To all dealing with the illness may you stay strong and continue to fight.  You inspire me.

Dear SharonLee, I cannot believe a whole year has passed. Some of us Moms really
have the best daughters and your Mom did too. I am so very peased that you stay in touch with us as we love hearing from you as well.

•    I wish heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again.     
•    I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
•    I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
•    I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
•    All I have are memories and pictures in a frame.
•    Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part.
•    God has you in his arms...I have you in my heart

So sorry for your loss and I can't believe it's been a year already.   I don't think we ever get over losing a parent.  In April it will be four years since I lost my Mom to CC.

Your love for your Mom shines through and the fact you were still consoling  others tells me her "apple" didn't fall far from the tree!

Hugs to you as you continue on this next part of the journey....


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

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Re: one year ago today Mom passed

Dear Shaonlee,

I feel for you and I'm so sorry for such a great loss.  Yesterday was the 3 month anniversary of my mother passing away.  I cry so much and my life has been so hard as it was the biggest loss of my life.  It's hard to live without my mother.  She was disgnosed with CC and passed away 8 weeks later on Novrmbrt 29, 2012.  She got a little better, was realeased from the hospital and we both thought she was going to recover, only for her to go back into the hospital a week later.  She couldn't stay out of the hospital.  My cousins were looking after her until I flew overseas to be with her, and it was the worst sight of my life watching her suffer.  However, I was greatful that I was able to spend a short-lived time before she passed away.  Then I buired her and thought I was going to die. 

I know her Spirit is with me and that I carry her in my heart at all times.  I also pray that when I die, that I'll join her and be right next to her forever in the afterlife.  She's waiting for me.

Anway, loosing a mother for me is the worst thing that has ever happened in my entire life.  I wish I was never born to feel this pain and I understand your pain.

Hugs to you~~~
