Hi April I know when I here my Moms message I still can not believe shes gone either! Her message makes me laugh because my Mom just did not quite understand electronics and how they work so when she talked on the answering machine I think she thought she was actually talking to me and waiting for an answer from me, so silly but I love Her so much and miss Her deeply! Daddy too.

Thanks, Dana. I'm so sorry for your loss, I know that people say that all the time, but I seem to have developed a really thin skin and a lot of empathy towards others since my mom passed. So I really do mean it. No one knows what that loss feels like unless they have experienced it, so it makes me angry when people who haven't lost anyone they love, especially their mom, say it to me. I was cleaning up my voicemail box yesterday and there was a message from her from November on there. She sounded so healthy, so alive, that it's hard for me to believe she is gone.

I still have my Moms message on my cell phone and I have no plans on ever deleting it! their room is still the same I have not cleaned it out my Husband has been great he said when ever Im ready who knows when that will be. And You do have someone to talk to You just do not know me but I am here! my Dad died on the 19th and was born on the 19th. I will keep You in my prayers. Dana.

It will be two months on the 19th since my mom left. She became ill suddenly in February, two weeks after my grandmother died. I miss both of them so much, every day. The tears come in waves. Some days I don't feel anything, other days I can't stop crying. My brother seems to have moved on, and my sister is doing ok, but I quit my job because I couldn't handle working with the public in a service atmosphere, seeing her everywhere I looked, every customer was my mom. Then there's the muzak cd playing in the background, all very innocuous, except all the songs reminded me of her-they were some of her favorites, some made me think of her, and some were just plain sad. I spent more time in the bathroom crying then I did on the sales floor and my concentration level is zip. I used to read 3 books a week. Now I'm lucky if I finish one in 3 weeks. I miss her so much, there is no one for me to talk to like I could talk to my mom. I still haven't deleted her cell phone number from my phone. I just want to talk to her one last time...

Eve I too feel like I'm to blame. I was there everyday and fighting every day and I was getting tired of fighting but my family wouldn't help me fight. My Mom too was my rock and she was such a special person that even people who only knew her a little said that she had something about her that drew them too her. If I could only be half the person she was I would be happy.

I miss my Mom so much. I was her caregiver even though she was in a nursing home. I was there every day but went away on a holiday and she passed and my sisters had her funeral without me. I did okay while I was away but I'm finding more and more I get very teary eyed just because. i really miss my Mom but my family really have moved on. Just like she said they were there for the money. She always said she felt they were waiting for her to die to get her money. I just wish I could tell her once more how much I love her

I am Laura Marshall's older sister and I am the one who took care of our mom. She was my rock, my lifeline and now she is gone due to the incompetency of her primary care dr. I just received all of our mom's medical records and this dr didn't do her job and has cost us to lose our mom. She was my best friend. I dedicated my entire life to taking care of her and I feel like I failed her. Every thought I consume is of her. I can't even explain how much I miss her. The tears flow continuously and I can't apologize enough to my sisters. My mom was a strong Italian woman who no one told her what to do. Finally, 3 weeks ago I was able to convince her to go to my dr. who took the time and within one business day was able to diagnose her but it was too late. I don't know how I am going to go on without her. I am also disabled and can't work but I swear I am dedicating the rest of my life to make sure no one else has to go through this. This morning I heard my mom call my name and I sat straight up only to cry more because she is not here. I miss and love you mom!!!

My sisters and I lost our mother 2 weeks ago. I never could of imagined the pain and actually hurt her dying has caused us. There are times when I think that my tears will not stop. We didn't even know she was so sick. She has been losing weight for over a year, but her doctor said she would monitor it. 3 weeks ago, she was feeling under the weather. My sister took her to see another doctor who ran test and 4 days later we were told she had cancer on liver. There were 4 tumors... that was Tuesday, she was ok, talking and being herself. By Thursday she was in ICU and in and out of a coma. We took her home on Saturday with Hospice. They said she would never make it through the night. She made it until Tuesday morning at 4am, when she left us. I miss her every second of every day. She was both our mother and father. She helped me raise my 2 beautiful children, who miss her beyond words. Will I ever be able to make it through one day?

My mom passed away from complications of cancer and lupus on June 28, 2010. I feel so lost. My mom was my best friend and I just can't believe she won't be around anymore. I talked to her on the phone almost every day. What do I do now? My 2 year old won't even remember what a wonderful grammy she had. My mom loved her SO much and was so excited to have a grandchild close. I just want to understand why my mom was taken from me. She was only 55. It's not fair. I want to know she is in Heaven and happy and in no more pain. My mom suffered a lot on this earth. I don't get how such a kind, wonderful, caring person would have to suffer so much. It's just not fair.
