Abbie, my heart breaks for you & your loss.  My Mom was older when I lost her, but I know I was not ready.  I was with her when she passed & it happened so sudden.  You are not alone.  I am thinking & praying for you.  Take care & thinking of you,

Yeah, you could lose your mom at 100 and it would still hurt badly. There is never a good time, and once they are gone, it's hard to take satisfaction in the fact that they lived so long because you can't hug them today. There is never enough time to be with your mom.

Still, I think I would have felt lost if I had lost my mom at 16. I feel lost now. I would also feel somewhat betrayed because other kids my age will have their moms for years to come. It's not fair. And Abbie didn't get to say goodbye to her mom. She didn't see it coming. She had no time to prepare. There were six days that her mom was alive that she missed out on. That's enough to drive you into your room and not want to come out.

Abbie, I hope that you are close with your dad, maybe even have a grandma or two. Let them love you. Hold onto them.

I was 31 when my mom died but it hardly makes any difference. The grief and guilt remains the same.

Abbie, I hope that you will continue to post here. I want to help if I can. I may have been a lot older when my mom died, but I sure felt like a little boy when she did pass. I was like a lost little boy who just wanted his mom.

Yes I agree with Brett and Sue, this website is wonderful, it has helped me understand that I am not alone.

Its like you find a bond with the people on here.

Yes 16 is very young to lose your mom, I am sorry for that, we are all here for you.

Comment by Sue Toler on June 19, 2019 at 6:11am

Abbie, I am truly sorry for your loss.  They told me my Mom died of a heart attack.  It was sudden.  This website has been such a blessing.  The kindness & compassion from the members is wonderful.  You are not alone & you are with others that care.  I will keep you in my thoughts & prayers.

Abbie, I am so sorry. This is a good place to talk because everyone here knows what it's like to lose their mom. We know how much it hurts. Every circumstance is different. I don't know what it's like to have lost my mom at 16. I can't imagine. One thing we all have in common is that we all loved our moms with all of our hearts. We still do.

If I can help you in any way, please let me know. If you have questions, need advice, or just need someone to lean on, please let me know.

God Bless You.
