While we may anticipate a loss and think we are prepared – the reality can be quite different. I hope you found joy in remembering and honoring your mom today and know that many in the cc family send prayers of peace and strength your way.

Your mother’s last days were happy ones with family celebrating Christmas and her birthday. Your days ahead will not be easy, grief is a winding road, I hope you find your way. I believe in poetry, here is one for your mother who is at peace on the other shore.
I must launch out my boat.
The languid hours pass by on the
shore—Alas for me!
The spring has done its flowering and taken leave.
And now with the burden of faded futile flowers I wait and linger.
The waves have become clamorous, and upon the bank in the shady lane
the yellow leaves flutter and fall.
What emptiness do you gaze upon!
Do you not feel a thrill passing through the air
with the notes of the far-away song
floating from the other shore?

Dear codergirl – Such a loss is difficult to comprehend. Thankfully, you had some time with your mom before she passed. When your grief washes over you, as it will, think of it as your mom coming to visit you and just take time to allow the visit. May your memories bring you comfort in the coming days.

Dear codergirl, I am so sorry for your loss. You were such a loving and compassionate daughter. I know that you made your Moms last days wonderful. She had a wonderful Christmas, birthday and New Years. You were with her and let her know she was loved. Take care of yourself now. God Bless,

Dear codergirl, I am sorry to hear about your Mom. As you say, at least now she is at peace. Take care of yourself, and my thoughts are with you.

So, so sorry to hear this news. I was so happy that your mom reached her goal of seeing another birthday and New Year. I was hoping that she would see many more. Life isn’t always fair, and I certainly do not have all the answers, but I can only wish you strength and courage to get through this rough time. You mom seemed like a very strong woman, and hopefully you will carry on her legacy and remain strong yourself. There are no words that I can provide to ease the pain in your heart, however, please know that I, along with everyone on this site, are here for you. If you ever need to chat, cry, or yell, bring it on. I am a good listener and not afraid of anything. Please take me up on the offer if you ever feel the need. I know how empty you feel, and no one will ever be able to replace your mom, but you truly are not alone. I will provide my email if the need arises. I’m like the energizer bunny, so no matter what time it is, if you need to talk, just send me a note. Many hugs to you. I will continue to keep you in my prayers.

I’m so, so sorry, Codergirl. Be kind to yourself – there is no “better” way to deal with grief like this than the way you are able to.
My sincere condolences to you & your family.

I also would like to extend my condolences to you and the rest of your family on the loss of your mother. She is now in a better place, no longer suffering and in pain. Remember that she will be with you forever in your heart and memories. May that give you some comfort and peace in the days to come.
Love & Hugs,

I am so sorry for your loss, codergirl. Sincere condolences go out to you and your family.January 5, 2011 at 9:04 pm #46369katieloumattMember
I am so sorry to hear of your Mum’s passing. I truly understand how you are feeling, my Dad died in June 2009.
As the others have said, be gentle on yourself, it will take time to heal, there is no time frame for grief, we are all different.
Thinking of you and your family at this time,
KatieJanuary 5, 2011 at 8:50 pm #46368kimmieParticipant
I am so so sorry to read this news. Please don’t be hard on yourself or have expectations on how you should handle things. This is such a tough time, you have to take one hour at a time. Hang in there and just do the best you can.
I’m truly sorry for your loss. I love what Lainy always says when someone’s mother dies – mothers never really leave their children. I pray for you to find comfort in her memories and in time that you will see evidence that indeed she will never fully leave you.January 5, 2011 at 8:43 pm #46367gracefulmeadow86Member
