Hi Cindy,

I am so sorry for your loss, my story is similar I lost my dad in April of 2002 he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and then I lost my mom in March of 2005.  I know exactly what you mean about having your mom to lean on when you lost your dad.  My mom was my best friend, I supported her when she was diagnosed in May 2004.  I watched her die slowly, even though she was sick her death was so unexpected.  She went for treatment than decided in January of 2005 she did not want anymore, we thought she had about 6-9 months to live.  I felt so alone and devastated, I loved my dad and missed him but my mom was different.  I realized my relationship with her was a more emotional relationship, we shared everything and anything with each other.  What help me was journaling about my feelings and doing things that memorialized her.  I made some scrapebook pages and I also set up a memorial on line that to this day I visit often.  Another thing that help was I went to a bereavement group that ran for 6 weeks once a week.  That really helped alot.  Try to remember your mom would want you to go on and have a good life.  Keep coming here this is a great place to talk, another great resource is going to the library and look for books dealing with your loss.  I hope this helps you a little and I will keep you in my prayers

God Bless

My mother died on May 7th 2011, three years to the day my father passed.  He had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and we had time to prepare so I handled things differently.  Add to it I had my mom to lean on and talk to.  Now I am lost.  I want to scream and yell but all I can do is cry. 


My mother became my best friend and I miss her so much.  I feel so alone and just don't know how to handle this.

My mom passed from a stroke in 2008, but it was so tragic, she had the severe stroke in 2002, and was in  a vegetated state in the nursing home until she passed 2/1/2008.

I miss her so, we lived 500 hundrend miles apart, but, we spoke every week or more, she was 74 when she passed. Watching her just lie there for almost six years and than pass was more hurtful than words can say! My heart goes out to all of you!!!

to dana, i m so sorry about about your loss. i have lost my mom and sister and it was so sudden. you are not alone in your pain or shock. and what you feel is not crazy
Comment by Dana Jarrett on April 23, 2011 at 2:49pm
On March 23, 2011 My father shot and killed my Mom and then committed suicide. My mother was one of my best friends. My mom, my sister, and I were always best friends from the time I was born. This sudden loss of our parents has left us in incredible pain and shock. The thought that our father hated us enough to take her from us just breaks our heart! We haven't even began to let reality settle in, but we are lost without our Mom. We both joined this site hoping to be able to talk and work through this grief with others that are hurting too
Comment by Amy Kuptz on April 19, 2011 at 5:10pm
I am really missing my mom right now and reading others stories seems to help.  Tomorrow will be 9 years without her.  I am graduating with a bachelors degree next month and it is a difficult time for me. This was our dream for me and I wish she was here to see.  I am very proud of myself and don't think I could have done it if she had not been my mother. She gave me the best childhood and I would not be where I am today without her.

Hi Jennie,

I am so sorry for your loss, it does help to talk about it. I also was the one I thought who had to be strong, but I realized I had to deal with it or it would come out some other way. I think we know someday we will experience the loss of our parents, but it does no make it easy. My mom was my best friend, the one I called when something good happened or when I was feeling down. I could tell her anything she loved me unconditionally. I miss not talking to her, I think I talked to her everyday specially after my father died in 2002, she died in 2005. I still miss her alot but I know someday I will be with her again which comforts me. In the mean time I need to live life because that is what she would want me to do. When my dad died I had my mom to grieve with, but when she died I felt alone in my grief. I did go to a bereavement group which help alot. I will keep you in my prayers, keep coming back this is a great and safe place to express your feeling.

God Bless,

just looking for another way to work through my pain, lost my mom in Jan 2010 and just haven't taken the time nor wanted to face the thought of being without her.  I had lost my dad 10 years ago too, and the more i think about it I dont think I really grieved him either.  I try to be the tough one, the support for everyone else...take a few minutes, let it out and move on...dont have time to deal with this ----but i need to make time or its never going to get any better.  Im hoping this will help me to do that.  I dont have my mom to "talk" with anymore, but maybe by expressing how I feel to other people who understand it will make it that much easier to work through. : )
