    So sorry to hear what you have been through. In contrast to the scene you took in when you found her and the days following, take comfort in the fact that she did not suffer. It is always hard on those of us left behind but know that the cares of this world no longer burden her. You have my prayers for comfort and understanding during this trying time. God bless you Brother.

    ...and there came to be a day, all too soon, that I became aware that I could travel no more on my long journey. Though I did not arrive where I had planned, I believe that here is exactly where I am supposed to be...

    Very sorry to hear about your loss. It ain't easy is an understatement. I lost my mom suddenly about 4 years ago and now my wife's grandmother isn't doing to good. Hopefully you can put those machines to good use.

    It's hard, and I know you're hurting. I'm sorry for your loss.

    She gave you some very good advice: "She told me people come and people go, family comes and family goes-get used to it' and so she has." Now mind your mama. <hand on shoulder>

    Ah, dang MedicineMan. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom.
    You all are in my thoughts. Sounds like she left a pretty inspiring legacy.

    Sorry to hear about your mom, MedicineMan. I'll be keeping you and your family in my prayers.

    Lost my grandma in'86 when is was 13. Lost my dad in 2000 and I was 29. After all this time is still miss their love strength and wisdom. But I also know they gave me as much of those qualities as I would accept.

    Remember mom, love mom, mourn for her and then do what you know she would tell you to do. Move on. Don't forget, but don't stop living either.

    GOD bless and peace to you in this time of loss.
