I lost my mom in June. It took me months to get used to not speaking with her a couple of times a day. I had to stop myself from calling her and telling her what her grandchilds just did. I was at a point where I had even good and bad days. Then I received my mom's W-2 in the mail last week and it all came back. I learned that I have to file her taxes from last year and I had to dig out her death certificate. I wanted to just lay in may bed and cry. The only reason that I don't is because of my…See More

About my Loss:
I lost my mom on June 13, 2011. She had been sick for a little while, but I didn"t believe that she would pass away. I came as a shock. No I feel as if I am lost. I used to talk and text my mom several times a day. No I don't know what to do.
I look at pictures of you and your mom and family and it could be my mom and me. We were so close too. When she died in June - I was with her holding her hand telling her to go to Jesus. I will never forget the life leaving her body. My mother, my darling mother was no longer in that body I have had in my life for 55 years. We shared a birthday December 19th. I was her favorite daughter (I knew this). Some days she would drive me nuts...others days were so blessed and wonderful. I miss her every minute. My life has changed. No more mom and Sue. Every weekend we would go shopping, have lunch and go to a movie. I miss that so much. I wonder if I was the best daughter I could be? I wish I had one more day to do everything I didn't do for her. I have such a feeling of loneliness inside. It hurts physically not just mentally. I know we will be reunited but its the days until then that are hard. I have no close family except for my moms sister and her kids in Michigan. My 3 sisters are just not very giving of themselves. Very selfish. How are you doing? Sue

"It is sad Trina but it is our truth. When my wife was here I'd dream about the good times that we would have when the kids finally cleared out. How I could really turn all the attention to her and spoil her, take her out and have date nights,…"
