Jessica, I am so sorry, you found a great group of people here.

To find out through a post is upsetting.

Was you mom ill?

Brett- thank you .

Jessica, that is beyond horrible. I am so sorry.

Jennifer, I think that my story (our story) is probably all too common.

My prayers are with both of you.

Hi, My name is Jessica. This is my first time here. I lost my mom unexpectedly on January 16th 2018. She was only 52 years old. I found out the worst way that she passed which still haunts me to this day. I was helping my fiancé with shooting his masters film and during a break I looked at my phone. On Facebook there was a picture of my mom and my uncle post my youngest sister passed away unexpectedly. I was in disbelieve because no one told me. In the end, it was true. I am hoping this grief site will help me through this ruff journey. I feel like I have no control over my life.

We donated Mom's personal things like clothing, blankets, shoes and all the American flags she kept from 4th of July to the Vets with in 1 month of her death. It was a hard day, but had to be done. But it is all the other things, like the cat statues she collected, what she used in the kitchen, all her stuffed animal collection, the pictures she put on the wall, her 3 cats( 2 of which live in her backyard and are are partially feral), the furniture she picked out and her plants outside etc are all part of what made her, her. I know they are just things, but they had meaning to her.

Bluebell, yes it is hard, I do not know how I found the strength to clean out the house, the shed and everything else so quickly, I was in a fog, I don't even remember it.  I might have done everything too quickly, but I had a brother that lived far away and put me in charge of it all.

In my opinion for myself the second year was harder than the first, I don't know why.

I remember when my dad passed away, my mom gathered all his clothes and called Viet Nam Vets and they were donated.

In way I guess I am glad its finished, but can I just say the hardest thing that brought me to tears was when I went back to the car dealer with her little VW Passat she leased 6 months ago, remembering when we picked out the car her saying to the sales man "what if I die during this lease", it was surreal and I cried, I must have had that look on my face for people to say it will be alright, for who I said?

Time keeps going  and I do cry quite often, everytime I think of her, there is no time on the grieving, but others think so.

I certainly miss her she was my everything, my world, my friend, my mom.

I pray she knows I love her and miss her......and I ask God for strength everyday.

Thank you Brett and Theresa. The anxiety I experienced on the days before during and after the 1 year anniversary of Mom's death has been hard to deal with. It is less today which I am grateful for. Both my sister and I are overwhelmed when we try to make plans to sell her house. So we just hang on to it, thinking that somehow it will get easier and we will know when it is the right time. But maybe we are fooling ourselves. There will never be a right time and it will always be a hard thing to do.
