I am so sorry Sister. God bless your mom and dad and you and all your family. It is a very difficult thing to lose your parents. I had just turned 40 when my dad died, and my mom died 12 1/2 years ago. In some ways it never leaves you.

Thank you, John.  I saw this thoughtful surprise yesterday, but I've been unable to respond until now. 

I'll admit it:  I'm a mess.  I can't seem to go 10 minutes without blubbering like a fool, and what's worse, it happens everywhere...the grocery store, driving down the street, the post office, etc.

I'll get through it I suppose, but I would rather wake up from this heinous dream and have both of them annoying the crap out of me as per usual.

My thoughts to both of you today, I know what it is to lose loved ones. I've lost a few in the past few years and, I know how much it can hurt but, to both of you I can say it gets easier but, you never quite get over it. Birthdays come and, go and, you remember each of them on those days.

I know that I'll be sitting here and, I'll think of one of them and, remember something they said or, did and, then that whole day plays in my head again, then another memory and, soon I'm sad all over again because I can't call them to go through that memory with them. All that being said, There's a song that helped me through most of it, I'm no longer a Christian but, this song still helps me, I hope it does the same for you,

Oh no. That just jolted me. My heart aches with sympathy and an overwhelming need to hold you close. To cry with you, to hurt with you, to sit in silence with you and share space with you. I wait the day when the mention of his name no longer brings burning tears that begin in the pit of your stomach but instead brings memories that make you smile. That day will eventually come but it seems to take forever. 

I wish you peace and everlasting love, Paula.

Thank you.  She's with my Dad.  Probably yelling at him about something or other, and loving every moment of it.

Oh, my aching heart. My Daddy passed away in late in 1998; my sainted Momma passed away seven months after that. They just missed each other, I guess. 

Sister Mary Agnes, one of my earliest memories was laying on a blanket in our vast backyard under several different types of fruit trees we had. We had these "campouts" about once a month. My mother would make a picnic basket with goodies and we'd stay out until day turned into night. My older brother and sister would pick fruit by candlelight in the summer months. My Dad would point out constellations and my Mom told us how the night sky would change from season to season. We'd laugh and talk and my parents would discuss with each other the day's events. My siblings would talk about school and I remember wanting to experience what they were talking about. My sister or my parents would read to me. And after they passed away, those memories all came rushing back to me. Those memories make me smile every time. 

I wish you love. I wish you peace. I wish you were here with me. I wish my arms were around you. I ache with you. You're not walking this walk alone. I'm quietly behind you.

We had these "campouts" about once a month.

We had similar outings, usually on Sundays before church.  We would go to North Lake (yeah, I know...North Lake?)  Mom would cook breakfast, Pop would fish, and the 3 of us kids would run around like we had been recently paroled.  I had actually forgotten about those Sunday excursions until I read your comment.  Thank you, dear friend.

I wish you love. I wish you peace. I wish you were here with me. I wish my arms were around you. I ache with you. You're not walking this walk alone. I'm quietly behind you.

I found this recently and posted it on facebook. I was thinking of my husband but I think it could be meant for any loved one that we've lost.

Sister, I'm so sorry you must go through this.

No matter how much we know, we prepare, we try to capture moments, it happens and that pit in the gut is still never prepared enough.

Please accept these good thoughts being sent and wishing you to find your smile again soon.

That is so true!  Although we were told that her brain episode was not survivable, we were still shocked when she actually died.  It was the same way with my dad's passing.  It almost seemed like someone had been playing a colossal joke.

I'm sorry sweety, I didn't mean to depress you more. I have found that many people do help you get through that time and, I know that there are folks out here who can help you to get through it. Perrie says in her comment that your Mom and, Dad did some good work in their lives and, I see that in your comments when you are on here, your humor and, the matter of fact way you tell people how you feel is an inspiration to me and, others, I know you got that from somewhere and, I think it is probably from them.
