Good morning to you all.
It was three years ago today that i lost my mom to cancer. I can't believe it has gone so fast. I still miss her badly. But I know she is in a better place.

I will never forget the kindness and love that this community of people showed me.
I wanted to thank you again for that, and in a small way, remember my mom today.

Aw man....

Lefty, I feel you, bro. Hang in there.

The 27th of this month will mark the 6th anniversary of my mother's passing. And having just gone through losing Maureen's mother a week and a half ago, I find myself having to get through a small case of depression. I try to keep it in persepctive, though. We're all only here for a little while. Make the most of it with each other, be kind, love one another, and when the time comes for us to pass from this existence, the people who loved us will remember our impact on their lives. That's why we miss those who went before us so much. That, and no one loves you like your mama (and granny.)

Lefty, hard to believe it's been 3 years! As you know, I lost my mom around the same time. I miss her so much. I know they're still with us. I feel her presence at times. Take care, brother!

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Mom's been gone 11 years in August and Dad, 15 in April, so I'm familiar with the sensation of loss. I can tell you that she is always with you, some times stronger than others and she loves you and is proud of you. May you be blessed today.

((( BIG GROUP HUG )))

Lefty, Dave, Peg . . . I too know the feeling. It will be 8 years since my Mom died on March 4th, 2002
Yes, when I remember times in my life; being a little girl getting my hair brushed, a teenager learning to drive, getting married, having my Babies. My Mom was always there for me. How many times do you go to the phone to call to tell her something and ya just have to hang up and go outside and look to the sky to have your talk. What I would give for just 1 more hug. That's when I hug my kids extra hard and long, she's in us all.

I miss ya Mom ((( BIG HUG )))

I can just imagine that when she got to Heaven, Conway Twitty ( he was her main man )
was standing there to greet her saying

"Hello Darlin', It's Nice To See Ya !"

So everyone that still has your Mom around, give them a Big Hug for all of us !

I remember Lefty when your Mom passed away.. It is very sad.. now and then. Hugs and Chin up and know she loves you, wherever she is. She is watching over you everyday.

Also big hugs to Dave and Peg and Ayla and Kitty and anyone else who has lost their Mom's to soon. I am lucky I still have mine and we feel blessed each day... I do hug her and tell her I love her as often as I can..

Ayla , I can not imagine the painful hurt of wanting to talk to your Mom and no longer having her here.. To me that is what I dread the most.. That is when we need the strength to continue on , because the hurt is bigger than anything we know.

Sending love to all...

Postive thoughts and Vibes Lefty, Dave and Peg... back in December just before xmas it had been five years since my Dad had passed ..i celebrate his live in many ways as he taught me so much and how to appreciate life. I am now going through the same painful slow ending to life with my mom she has been on 24/7 oxygen support for over two ears her lungs are at less than 40% capacity ...

I am sure as I am we all hate to see lived ones leave our life.... here is a video that will put some things you think about into a new perspective

((( Hugs ))) going out to all you who are missing your Mom's or Dad's (or anybody, really). And hoping you all know that they know of the love you carry in your hearts.

I'm pretty lucky to still have both my parents still alive and be able to enjoy spending time with them and build more memories. I have a selfish dread for what I know is inevitable ... and I tell them I love them whenever we speak and hug them hard whenever we part. Those next hugs and I love you's will include thoughts for all of you who posted here and your parents as well as for me and mine.

Thinking about you Lefty....

Took a long time for me to get over my mothers death 13 years ago, but when I think about her now, I just smile....

Thoughts and hugs for you Lefty, I'm fortunate enough to still have my mama with me and doing well at 86; although my dad passed away almost 13 years ago; it's still hard to believe it has been that long.

Thinking about you and how you are feeling, Lefty. John's dad has been gone a year now and we miss him so much. Tears are our way of letting our emotions run through how we are feeling at that time; tears of joy, laughter, and sadness, but with the knowledge and blessings of being a part of that certain person's life.

With each passing year, I tend to remember more positive things and try to be less sad when thinking of my Mom. The anniversary of her death is more of a tribute to her life. I found putting some sort of positive spin on it helped.

Hugs and prayers to all who have lost someone important.
