Well, it was 2 years ago today that was the last time that i ever say my wonderful mom, who was 62.  We had gotten front row tickets to the Red Wings game and before that we had dinner and went to the auto show.  She was so excited about the hockey game because she had lived in florida for 18 years prior to that. She had recently moved back to Michigan in 8/06.  I really try not to think of the dates associated with her passing but i can’t help myself.  You see my mom wasn’t sick and didn’t have any health problems.  We dropped her off that night and she waved goodbye to me from her porch, which i will never forget.  The next day was sunday the 14th, i had tried to call her a few times but i didn’t get an answer from her cell or her house phone.  But, my mom sometimes was in her basement doing little projects so i just figured she would call me back the next day.  That monday happened to be Martin Luther King day and where i work it’s a holiday, so i was at home.  Her work called me and said she didn’t come in and they were worried. You know that sinking feeling you get in your gut, it was there and i knew something was so wrong. Basically she had a heart attack, probably the day before but we’ll never know because she lived alone.  I guess i just want to tell the story again to keep her memory alive more.  This is a very hard week for me and i miss her every single day.

    • I understand...as do many of us.  My heart goes out to you.

      Your mother’s final memory is of time well-spent with a loving daughter.  

      How wonderful would it be if we ALL got to leave this world on the heels of a joyous occasion, without prolonged suffering?

    • Thank you ladies for your kind words, it means alot to me. I am very thankful that the last memory i had with her was such a great one.  I’m also glad that she never suffered as so many people do.  The mother i’ll always remember was loving and full of so much life, which is why i miss her so much.

    • Jennifer,
      I’m sending all my love to you. My heart aches along with you, as I too know the pain of loss.
      I just have to agree with Daphne, your mommy got a chance to spend her last days with her family, full of joy and love. Hold tight to that memory.
      She is your angel now and she is in Heaven skipping through the clouds with my son AJ.
      Bless you.

    • Losing a parent is one of the hardest things I have gone thru in my life. You will never forget your Mom, she will always be in your heart. I lost my dad 14 years ago, and there is still not a day that goes by when I dont think of him.  Yes, it has gotten easier thru the years, but it still hurts. She will always be with you.

    • Even tho you lost your mother suddenly and with no notice. It is a blessing that you were able to spend that time with her before.
      I also have lost my mom and it’s been only a year. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her or wished she was alive so I could share with her.

      May all Moms be blessed and praised as yours was.

    • My mom died at the age of 58, that was three years ago. I think about her every day too, although now it’s usually happy memories and not grief.

      We share your pain.

      I know the grief you are feeling all too well and the anniversary of her death brings all of those feelings back to the present.
      I just went through this last week with the anniversary of my Dad’s death. Even though it has been 17 years... the grief comes back ten-fold and all we can do is lean on our loved ones for support and comfort.
      I think of my Dad everyday and imagine how he would love this crazy life right now... being with his grandkids and all of the new technology today.. I wish so badly that he was here to share that with me..
      Cherish your memories of your mom and embrace those last moments that you shared with her...
      The night before my daddy died... his last words to me were “Remember that I will always love you“...

    • Boy! do I know how you feel.  I lost my mom in March last year to pancreatic cancer.  Only three weeks after diagnosis.  My last “good or wonderful” memory is of her, my dad, me, my husband and my two sons talking about what the next year would bring.  That’s the last time she was in my home, talking and just being “alive“.  As I approach the first anniversary of her death I don’t know what to expect.  The holidays were tough enough without her here. Sending prayers your way!
