            I'm so sorry for your loss. I actually fought back a year looking at the wedding photo. My dad passed away 2001 and it took me awhile to grieve. Every milestone a pass as an adult is bittersweet (college graduation, marriage, child, first house, etc...). He would have loved watching the Zags.

              So sorry for your loss, WooHoo. Nothing will take your pain away but you can be thankful that you did have your Mom for as long as you did, that she got to see you grow to manhood, that she got to be with her grandkids. Those are tremendous memories.

              It'll take awhile, but it does get easier with time.

              Prayers to you and your family, brother.

                Woo saddest thing to lose your anchors in life. I dropped a note to you a few weeks ago. And left contact info. All the fellas/women on this board are correct. It takes time....but to be clear the inside part of you will always have a piece gone. Sorry for the loss. It's a big one.

                    Sorry for your loss Woohoo. It takes time but it will get better. I lost my mother 20 plus years ago and still think of her constantly. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

                        I'm sooo very sorry Nathan, may the Lord touch your family and bring peace, knowing you will be with her again and that she's with our Lord right now.... There is nothing like losing a parent. As an adult they seem the same age as when we were kids. May God bring you and yours the same peace and joy that you (at least in part) bring to everyone here - your family on this board- with every positive and uplifting post of yours! Godbless WooHoo!!!

                          Hey Abe, did you mail the note, or PM? I didn't get a PM (I need to clear some messages, it may have been full). If you mailed it, it's likely in the process of being re-routed to me, as we have recently moved.







                          Thank you for the kind words everyone! We had a very big turnout at her visitation. It was hard, but very comforting.

                              Sorry for your loss, I have lost a parent and it isn't easy.

                                So sorry for your loss Woohoo. You're so young to lose your mom.

                                Mine will be 94 in Oct; she had a series of strokes that damaged her ability to speak and perform the most basic functions about 4 1/2 years ago, and broke a hip about that time and is wheelchair bound. At 89 she was doing things like someone 20 years younger, then within 6 months essentially became an invalid.

                                My brother and I are taking care of her in her home, and it's not easy; consumes my life nearly 24/7. But your post is a reminder (one I need from time to time, honestly) to be grateful for every day she's here.
