Ever since the loss of my mom (12/242015) I have felt very much alone. It didn't start out that way. After mom died, as sad as I was, I had friends and family calling me each day to see if I was…Continue

"I was so glad that I was able to do everything my mom needed as a caretaker but that did not make her death any easier. I still lost her. I still have the finality of death in my mind that hits me every day like a sledge hammer. And it's the…"

"Luisa, the best advice I can give you is to be the best caretaker that you can be. Remember, your daughter loves you the same way that you loved your mom at that age. God has given you a tremendous blessing to love on and take care of. There is your…"

"I'll be honest with you Luisa. As tough as my mom's funeral and arrangements were, I realized later that I was still in a state of shock when they occurred. I cannot remember very much about those days. You are right about losing Boo. This…"

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"Thanks, Lisa. I also feel like death is all around me. Boo's sister is still alive but every time I look at her I feel like she is going to leave me, too. It's hard. I have never had a little dog rely on me the way that Boo did. She was…"

"So sorry about Little Boo -- this kind of loss on loss is really hard. Hope the other little dog is doing okay and that you can give each other some comfort."

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"Not well. Losing little Boo was hard enough because I loved her so much, but it also opened up a floodgate of memories. We can't go back. Not even for a day. What I wouldn't give to snuggle with that little bundle of fur right now. I…"

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"I lost one of mom's little dogs last night (Boo Bear). Around 3:00 am she apparently had a seizure. Poor thing was convulsing so badly. I tried to hold her and comfort her but she was in too much pain. She just wanted to walk around the house.…"

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"Crystal, I wish that I knew you personally so that I could walk with you through this. I continue to be angry at odd things, like my mom was the first of her sisters to die. Her sister's kids still have their moms. That might be very selfish…"

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"Crystal, I can relate to everything that you wrote. A few weeks ago I was looking for a notepad. I found one. I opened it and remembered that my mom used to use that pad to leave me notes like, "Gone to the store. Be back soon." That…"

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"I have kept the contents of my moms wallet intact. Very hard for me to look in there. I see all of her store discount cards, credit cards, random numbers that she had written down, her health insurance card that I had seen her use so many times.…"
Oct 2
Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"I love the things that I have kept. I have my mom's nameplate from her desk, her wallet, her cell phone. What I don't have is my mom. And it also makes me sad, even scares me, to think that the only way I will see her again is to die. I…"

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"I think it is great to have a distraction. If there is a downside to that it is that our feelings have to be dealt with. I didn't work for a pretty long time after mom died. That was a mistake. I had way too much time to think. I guess that too…"

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"Theresa, you will always miss your mom but it may get a little better as time goes by. The holidays are so hard. Losing my mom on Christmas eve was... you can imagine. Our last Thanksgiving together was very hard, too. Mom was in the hospital. She…"

Brett Bowman commented on Jarvis's blog post After Death Communication
"Crystal, I can't say that my Christian beliefs make things any easier. I do take solace in knowing that she is in heaven, but the finality of my mom's death is just as real for me. There is no way around it. It hurts terribly. About a…"

Brett Bowman commented on Karen's group I miss my Mom!
"I try to do that as well, Bluebell. I always want to be a son who makes my mom proud. I wish that I could somehow know that mom is still aware of me somehow. That she knows how much I miss her and love her. I just don't know if she does.…"

I have only been on this site for a few days. And I realize that I am an anonymous person to all of you. You are to me as well. Over time I hope to get to know many of you better, to find out your stories, who you lost, and why you loved them so much.

I don't want to be just a random name, or that kid who misses his mama. I want you to know who I am. The first and most important thing to know is that no one calls me Brett. My nickname is "Oatmeal." I have been called Oatmeal…

How Far is Heaven?

I'm a mamas boy. There was a time when I was embarrassed to say that. Not anymore. I would scream it from the mountain tops, especially if I thought that my mom could hear me. I was her caretaker. I couldn't stand the idea of my mom spending her last days (years) in assisted living. I wanted her to die in her own home, and I wanted to give something back to the woman who not only gave me life, but also loved me unconditionally until her last day on earth. She died on Christmas Eve, 2015. And…
