Update On My Mom

Recommended Posts

Jackie   

My mother passed away this past Sunday. She had experienced too many issues and complications with breathing and the secretions from her cough. She did not want to be living on tubes and made sure we all knew her wishes....Although she could not speak due to the stroke--she definitely was aware of us-she would blink her eyes when I asked or would squeeze my hand--she even held the newspaper up at one point. It was a pretty rough last few days to see what she went thru. She is at peace now and with my father and her brother and sisters.She was the most amazing person I ever knew. I will really miss her. I want to thank all of you for your support and prayers--I really appreciate it. You are all a very nice group of people. Cherish your loved ones who are still around.

Dear Jackie

What you said about your mom now being with others in your family who had passed away before her brought back memories of when my Dad was dying and I was holding his hand. I feel that his Mom, who died when he was a child, was there anticipating his arrival into the spirit realm just as she had when he was being born into this mortal world. What a joyous reunion it must be for them even though we, on this side, suffer the pain of separation.

May you and yours find comfort in your faith in God and His love for your family.

Belle

Jackie, I am deeply sorry to read of your Mom's passing. It may not seem like it right now, but you were blessed to be able to be with her at the end. The courage and strength she showed is to be admired and respected. That she is with her siblings and parents now, may be of some comfort to you and your family. I will continue to pray for your Mother's soul and for angels to comfort you and your loved ones.

Jackie,

So sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in your memories of her and knowing that you have an Angel in heaven to watch over you as she did here on Earth.

Jackie- I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. At least she is at peace and you have your memories. Remember not how she died, but how she lived. I lost my mother last year so I can relate to everything you are going through (my mom's illness was pretty sudden, also.) Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

My sincere and deepest sympathy to you, Jackie. Losing parents is so difficult and you and your Mom shared a special bond of love, that's very apparent. She knew you loved her (and still does) and vice versa, and that makes all the difference. You will have the best possible Guardian Angel, and she will watch over you just the way she did when she was with you.

You have the peace of knowing that Mom's wishes were respected and that she didn't want to prolong her suffering and she's no longer in pain. But grieving is difficult. Grieve, but she would want you to take care of yourself because she loved you so much. She would want you to carry on and and take comfort in the love you shared, so she can continue to shine through you. Remember, you are part of her and always will be, so she will never be gone. And she will always be a part of you.

When my Mom passed away, I truly felt like I couldn't go on. At her funeral, I was so heartbroken, I asked my husband "How am I going to live without her?" which I realize now, was not the most sensitive comment to make to him, but he understood my pain. I realized that I have her blood in my veins and she was strong and intelligent, loving and wonderful, and the more I thought, the more I realized that her genes, her spirit live on through me and I can't tarnish them by feeling sorry for myself. Rather, I picked myself up and cultivated a feeling of pride in being her daughter and cultivating that part of me that came from her. It worked. I still miss her terribly, every day, and sometimes feel really sad, but I remember that my parents loved me as a reflection of themselves and it comforts me to know that they live on in me.

And your Mom will live on in you. In time, that knowledge and the happy memories you shared will give you peace and even joy. Both you and Mom are in my prayers.

Lots of love, Jackie.

:)--Darlene

I also want to say I am sorry for your loss. Hopefully knowing that some of us here have been through a similar experience when losing a parent (or other close loved one) provides you with some comfort.
