Mom Passed

  1. About this time two years ago I shared the adventure that was moving my mom from her home into a memory care facility. Last night at around 10pm she passed away. Still not quite sure how I feel today. We were not close and she did a lot of terrible things to us kids but she did raise 6 children none of whom went to prison so I guess that's something.

    I'm sorry for your loss. You were not close, yet she was your mom. Grief, regrets, might-have-beens, relief, loss - it will take time to get through it.

    May you find peace & comfort.

    Sorry for your loss. From personal experience, having had a difficult relationship with a parent, you still grieve.

    Sorry for your loss. I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer when I was young but we were close. I can't imagine the mixed feelings you must be experiencing(and it seems to be from your post). My thoughts are with you. <3

    I'm sorry for your loss, Hppy.

    I get it, in a way ... my mom is facing the end of her fight with breast cancer and we've had a difficult relationship, at best. Child hood was not a fun time. I'm not sure how I'll feel at the end.

    She's still your mom ... those what if's mixed with grief and memory -- (((gentle))) hugs. Not being close at the end doesn't make it hurt any less. Be gentle with yourself.
