Topic: Miss my best friend

I lost my Mom in Sept 2012 a few days before her birthday to this cancer. When she was diagnosed she lived only 3 weeks.
Not a day goes by where i dont think about her and miss her terribly.  She was my best friend.  I miss our daily chats and her advice.  This pain wont go away.  Some days I come home and listen to her voice mails just to hear her voice again.  I know she wouldn't want me to be so sad.  The one thing that gets me through this is knowing she is with my dad.  That is what she wanted more than anything.  When I visited their grave site I felt a big sense of relief knowing they were together again, holding hands. 
Sorry everyone for posting my grief on this forum.  I know it's been awhile since Ive been here but you all know what this pain is like and it helps to let it out once in awhile.
God Bless you all!  Everyone on this forum will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Becky,

Yes, I do know how you are feeling.  Lost my husband to this disease very quickly too and all I can tell you is that the pain is always there, it just softens with time.  I still miss him so much, but know that he is in a better place and no longer suffering and this gives me comfort.

No apologies necessary for your posting.  We all understand and are here to listen, help and support each other.   Getting it out, especially to those who have been there too and truely understand does help.  Come back when you feel the need and let us know how you are doing.  Take care.

Love & Hugs,

"One Day At A Time"

Dear Becky, there are no rules on how much time grieving takes as it is diffrent for everyone. You are so right that your Mom wants you to be happy, but she knows you better than anyone and she knows it is going to take a litle more time. Like we say, the deeper the love the deeper the grief. You come here anytime you want we are always glad to see you!


I’m at your side each night and day,
In your heart is where I’ll stay.
You can feel, see or hear, I am not gone, I’m always near.
I’m the colorful leaves when fall comes round,
The pure white snow that blankets ground.
I’m the first bright blossom you’ll see in Spring.
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
I'll whisper your name through the leaves on the trees,
And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
I'm the salty tears that flow when you weep,
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, I'm everyplace!
