My mom has passed.

Started by

It is with great sadness I am writing to let this amazing and supportive group know that my mom passed away last week. She was sick the week before and took a turn for the worse. She was admitted to the hospital and passed away with all her "kids" and my dad with her. My parents just had their 56 wedding anniversary.

I don't know what I would have done without this group over the last several years. It has been so helpful to me. Especially as I navigated new waters caring for my mom. And, dealing with less than helpful family members. I will vent a tiny bit and then stop... Two of my SIL who don't talk to me for reasons I have no idea about never even offered their condolences or said one word to me throughout all this. Even knowing how close I was to my mom. They attended the funeral service I organized and attended the mercy dinner without so much a word. I just think they a pure evil.

In closing, thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and support throughout this journey with my mom.


I am so sorry for your loss. May you be blessed and comforted by Loving memories of the time you spent with your mom. You were a blessing to her!
Karen06, thank you for your note and kind words. They are truly appreciated.
I too am so sorry for your loss. I hope your memories can give you comfort and peace. Take care...
So sorry for your loss. (and for you having such horrible SILs)
I wish you peace, and healing, and comfort in knowing you were there for your mom. I hope your love for her makes the poor treatment from others seem like small potatoes. I'm glad you had this site.
My heart goes out to you at this sad time. And for what it's worth, many folks here can relate to your experience with the SILs. I have similar duds-in-law. The only acknowledge my household when they need something. My husband eats their sh*t with a spoon, so I'm always the bad guy. And they are permanently exempt from manners, respect and recipriocity. Whatever.
Deepest condolences on your loss. Forget those that don't support you. Concentrate on you now. ((((hugs))))
AC, I am so sorry for your loss. Be proud of all you did for your mom. She is proud as well. Relish in your happy memories of her.

Sorry for the loss of your Mother. Try to spend time with the good memories; you did much for your Mom & I am sure she is proud of you.
