"It will take time. Personally, I couldn't smile at anything for 2 weeks after my mom died (Ironically enough it was when I was driving home with her cremains), but know this: There is no reason for you not to laugh or smile at something. You…"
"The farther away I get from my mom's death (September 2012), the easier it seems to get. Don't get me wrong, not a day goes by where I don't think about my mom, and I still get sad...but I realize that she's not in any pain…"
"I hear you guys. I'm stuck with a family that's crumbling, an uncertain future, and really wishing that the holidays were done. Especially since at work all they play is this soft-hit Christmas music BS that either annoys the hell out of…"
"My birthday is this coming Friday (Yeah, Black Friday.) And it's going to be sadder than shit...my first birthday without my mom. Not to mention it seems the rest of my life is going to shit too. Any advice on that first birthday? "
"@Jennifer I have a similar feeling every time I hold mom's urn. And jeez....I'll be moving out of my house for similar reasons. I know it's probably time for me to move on anyway, in terms of the house (NOT in terms of mom,) but it…"
"Hearts and hugs to everyone, Y'all. If there's anyone in the eastern seaboard tonight, my thoughts go out to you. Please keep friends and family in your prayers/thoughts tonight if they are in Hurricane Sandy's way. "
"Hey Y'all...hope you're doing ok considering the circumstances. I really miss my mom still...it seems to be at its worst at night, when she was most active. It's stressful as all hell because I'm also trying to pursue a job and…"
"I do too...I do too. It's been so damn horrible...the only thing keeping me going strong is that it apparently gets better...so I am told from others who have lost their mothers and fathers....but it feels like the pain will never go away. "
"Brad, I completely agree. Staying busy really helps keep the pain away, albeit temporarily. You want to feel the pain...it helps it go away sooner.
My first speaking gig was tonight, and I did really well. On the way home, I knew mom would be…"
"I'm with you too Lynn. I lost my mom about a month ago, and it feels like someone put a knife in my heard and cut a chunk out. Just surround yourself with friends and family, and consider therapy as an option too. And give yourself time to…"

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.
