Hey Mom,

I know you aren't gone from this world yet, but I also know that day is quickly approaching us.

I want you to know a few things:

For starters, I love you. I love you more than you could ever imagine. I hate you're leaving us so early in my lifetime because Matthew and I have just gotten to be old enough to really know how to appreciate everything you and Dad have done for us. I'm sorry I was a bratty teenager who made you cry sometimes.…

Hi Elizabeth,

I'm so sorry for what you are going thru!

I was a nurse...a GI nurse. I stopped working just this past Christmas. I spent the year of 2014 taking care of my husband of 27 years who was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. He lasted only 9 months after diagnosis. He suffered thru the chemo and radiation only to die days before deer season which is what he lived for...Initially I was giving him 200mg of the time released Morphine, but got him down to 60mg BID with occ. breakthru. He had worked so hard to improve. He had a bucket list of house improvements he wanted to complete before he left me. Here he was, so sick, and his thoughts were to make MY life easier. 

All that my kids and I could do for him was let him know how much we loved him and appreciated him. It sounds like that is what you are doing for your mom. Continue letting her know that she made a difference in your life! Love her and tell her that she is what made you! Even any "brattiness" that she had to deal with turned you into the successful nurse you are now. And remember that it is ok to cry...It is ok to be mad...just not at your mom. She didn't choose this.

Good luck to you!

Hi Elizabeth. So sorry to hear about your mom. I have not had to go through that one. I don't know how that would feel. I have not been close to my mom my whole life, so when I say I have no idea of how it would feel to lose someone that close to you, I really have no clue. I am so sorry it has to be like this too. Cancer is not a good way to go.  I see it eating away at Rocky every day. I don't know if the chemo is worse, or if it's just the cancer. He doesn't take his chemo all the time because it makes him so sick and the Dr's are all for that. You know, quality of life and everything. But I know that it just means that much less time I have with him and there is nothing I can do about it. Then I will be totally lost.

Thank you for making me your friend.

Hi Elizabeth,

I am so sorry about your mother. I know how hard it is to watch a loved one die from cancer. I pray that she goes peacefully. I also hope that you will find peace.

Widow as a newlywed

When i got married March 25th 2019 was one of the Best days of my life i was marrying the man of my Dreams,My best friend,My soul mate.

"Till death do us part", a letter to my husband

How do I begin to thank you for the life you have given me. A life that included 4 loving children, 4 beautiful grandchildren and memories that will last forever.We had more then the romantic love we had when we first met almost 40 years ago. That fades with time. Through the ups and downs, fights and reconciliations, laughter and tears we had something more. We had true love, commitment, trust, and most importantly we had friendship. Since 1975 we have been together to celebrate every…See More
