So I am online trying to find some comfort/support b/c I am tired of hearing from people who have no clue tell me that "time will heal and soon you won't miss talking to your mom everyday" yet…Continue

About Me:
I am 35 years old and have three children ages 8, 4 and 2. I and am happily married, but missing my mom so much its unreal!
About my Loss:
I lost my mom in January 2010 to terminal lung/bone cancer. She was a non smoker and very healthy up until her diagnosis. She was only 55 years old and my best friend in the whole world. She fought hard for two years, but finally went home to be with Jesus at the end of her battle. I am glad to know she is no longer in pain, but I miss her so much it hurts. I miss her advice, I miss her voice, I miss her hugging me...the list goes on!

Yes Kristine the pain of losing someone is a difficult thing, but thanks to sites like this you don't have to go thru them alone. It helps I know sometimes to talk to total strangers than family. Knowing the other person has gone thru what you are going thru helps so much. My husband is wonderful, yet even though he was with me every step of the way, loved my parents as they were his own, still doesn't get the full loss feeling. So as someone who understands, I am here for you. Take care. Nancy

I am so sorry for your loss. She was a beautifil lady from your pictures. No she will not be able to hold your thrid baby...but she will be watching over him/her as a special guardian angel. I lost my mother and she was my best friend also. I lost my dad just a couple of months before. It hurts so bad. Your mom was so young..and a non smoker...that is terrible. I am not a big religious type person but I do believe there is a reason for everything.
I am 51 and I have two sons (Steven 27 and Alex 12) If you need a "mom" to talk to...I can try to help. Sometimes a total stranger can really help.
Take care of yourself and those little adorable babies. Nancy

I love the pictures of your mom! I am missing my mom, too. Life is so different without mom! The only comfort I have is knowing that I will see her again one day. Take care, Beth

New York Times essay I wrote about orphanhood

Hi everyone, I am new to the group, but not to loss. Thanks for adding me.I wanted to share an essay I wrote, "Welcome to the Freak Show: Becoming an Orphan in My 20s", that is in the New York Times today. Even though all of our experiences with grief are unique, I hope it resonates in some way.Best, KelliSee More
