    My mom passed away

    Haven't been on the net much of late; my mom went in for a knee replacement, and everything went well. But last Sunday she suffered an unexpected heart attack in her sleep, and passed away. I've been taking care of her affairs the past week. Her memorial service was this morning. We were very close. It's been a really hard week and I'm still pretty much in shock, but I've been lucky to have some good friends looking after me.

    Sorry to hear of your loss . I know there is nothing that can really be said to make things all better, but at least you are a part of a good online community like this one to help keep your spirits up a little.

    I am VERY sorry for your loss . I lost my mom a few years ago and know the heartache that comes with losing a parent. My thought and prayers are with you. I am just a PM away if you ever want to talk.
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    I lost my Mom to breast cancer in 92' she was 42. It literally took my breath away and I felt as if I was going to suffocate. Everybody kept saying sorry because that seems to be what you say but it just made me not want to hear those words anymore. I turn 42 this Thursday and it feels kinda weird. My thoughts are with you. Try to keep your head straight and not let it consume you. It's very easy to be angry for all the wrong reason instead of healing for the right ones.

    This is one of the hardest time in anyone life, and no words ever helped me when I lost my dad. All I can think to think to say or do is what helped me. So with full sincerity.

    Sorry for your loss, Scott. These things are never easy under any circumstance, but are worse when it happens completely unexpectedly and out of the blue. I hope everything goes as well as it can for you in the very difficult time.

    Scott, I'm so very sorry. I cannot imagine how badly you must be feeling. It seems really unfair . Try to surround yourself with people who love you and spoil yourself a bit.

    Maybe post some pics of her here?

    My condolences to you and your family, Scott. I still have my Mom and Dad, but at 37, I'm terrified of the day when they're taken from me.

    Scott, I am so sorry to hear this and my prayers and good wishes are with you and your family. I lost my grandmother in 2010, and we were close. I don't want to say it gets easier, but it is possible to find peace with it and so is my hope for you.

    And on that post from Uncle, I will respectfully suggest, Scott, that when the time is right that you watch the film WHAT DREAMS MAY COME. I'm not a big fan of Robin Williams, but it was surely among his best. While comprised of a dramatic storyline, this film portrays a view of the afterlife that I hope is true. What I do know is that it brought my mother a great deal of solace after the passing of my father, who she was wed to for sixty-five years. I would hope the ending of the film does the same for you. In my best of hopes, I would hope this is what heaven is about.

    Agreed. It is a very comforting movie.

    So sorry to hear this, but I'm sure she's proud of what a great son she raised. I know I told you this once before, but there are only about 10 people whose posts I always read, and you are one of them due to your fairness, wisdom and insight. Good Journey to you and to her.
