Goodbye Mom: 1945 – 2011

While going through literally hundreds of photos last night, I stumbled upon something I wrote about my mom when I was just a kid.  I don’t know how old I was when I wrote it, but it stayed true until the end…

Goodbye mom.  You’re in a much more peaceful place now…no more suffering, no more pain.

I love you.

You will forever be my very best friend.

  1. I’m so very sorry that you’ve lost your Mom. I hope all the good memories outlast the bad in the difficult days ahead. *hugs*

  2. I’ve never met you, but I cry for you this morning. Unfortunately, it will be a rough little while. Take care, and if you and/or Sunshine need an ear, you know I’m here. (((Big Hug)))


  3. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    This post is a beautiful tribute. People often ask me what my wishes are for my children and I don’t really have any specific ones other than that they be happy and continue to have a close and warm relationship with me. I hope thta my son and daughter would look back on my life and our time together in as touching a way as you have.

  4. Deepest sympathy to you and all who loved your Mum.
    Wishing you all strength through your tears.

    May you always feel her love with you wherever you go in life-just like sunshine on your shoulders.

  5. I’m so sorry for your loss CBG….praying for you and your family.
    This was a lovely post, I even teared up a bit (amazing for a coldhearted bitch like me) Your mother is beautiful and you can see the love in those pictures….thank you for sharing


  6. Beautiful words, and spoken so strongly after such a loss. I am so so sorry for your loss, words cannot describe. My heart and prayers are with you.

  7. I am so very sorry, but I loved the pics/tribute to her. And the best part of all was that poem you wrote as a kid, so cute. Your family will be in my thoughts at this difficult time.

  8. Forgive me. This is my first blog comment on your blog. I follow you/Sunshine thanks to my sister (Jobo) and felt compelled to post a comment here tonight. I cannot fathom the range of emotions you are going through. I just can’t. I am just sorry that you have to endure such a painful loss. Your mom sounds like an amazing woman. Beautiful words.

  9. I have been away from the computer all weekend, so I just saw your mom passed.So sorry for your loss, my thoughts are with you and your family.

  10. My thoughts are with you and your family. Losing a parent is so hard, even though we know it will happen one day. Your tribute to her is lovely; I am sure she has felt that love.

  11. Thinking of you and your family in your grief and sadness.

    PS I see on twitter you want to thank everyone for messages.I don;t use my real email add on blogs, so didn;t want you to send an email to my “made up” one,that may belong to someone else(as I posted a sympathy note to you above)

  12. This post made me cry. I lost my own mom to cancer almost 4 years ago now. I can’t believe it’s been that long. For her it was 1947 to 2007. She was in the hospital for her 60th birthday, which is way too young of an age to go. I was 24, pregnant with my first son (though my mom and I were sure it was a girl and were very wrong!) I’m so sorry for your loss. My mom was one of my best friends and I was very close to her, even this month I wondered, for a brief second, why my mom hadn’t called me yet on my birthday. Hugs to you, even though I don’t know you, it never goes away, but it does dull over time. I really didn’t think I could survive my mom’s passing. Surprisingly I did. You will, too, but I’m sure, like me, you will always miss her.
