I lost mine Tuesday night. My step-dad called me and left a voicemail that I needed to call back immediately, as soon as I got the message. I knew right away it was something to do with my mom, who has had a history of medical issues.
I figured she'd had another heart attack and was back in the hospital for the umpteenth time again.
Not this time. That was it. She's gone. I'm just, well, kinda numb right now.
For all of y'all that still have your mothers, tell them that you love them. You never know when it'll be the last time that you do, or can.

I'm sorry about your mom. Moms really are there for us when we're kids and they want to be there for us as we get older even as we're struggling to leave the nest, constantly. We unknowingly break their hearts a thousand times as we push them away to try to do our own thing. A thousand times they come right back and pick us up when we're not ready.

Very sorry to hear this, Blade. I know firsthand about losing parents, and the things we wish we'd taken time to say to them.

Blade, sorry to hear about your mom, Blue Skies to your mom and our prayers go out to you and your family.
I tell my mom everyday how much we love her and always will. Sorry brother, good memories and keep the faith.
Remember, we miss them but never lose them.

Damn sorry to hear about your mom Blade. I lost mine in the summer of 2004 to cancer. I know it isn't easy but it will eventually get better.
I still miss mine, especially around the hollidays.
We sometimes take our moms for granted until they are gone. They put up with a lot to keep home and famioy together ... especially from their sons. Mine had two. Mom was a saint for putting up with me and my brother.
All hail to mom."You don't know the power of the dark side. I must obey my Master."

My condolences, Blade Runner.
I lost my mother July 31st of last year. I may have said this in an earlier post...I took my new job to be near my family again. Even
though I'm now able to spend time with my brothers, sister, and stepfather, not a day goes by without me wishing she was
still alive to see me move back to the family. The only advice I can think of that would help you at this point in time is to stay near
the rest of your family until some semblance of normality returns to all of your lives. Lean on each other for as long as you have to.

Don't Forget About Your Father, Too!
Don't forget about dad, too! They also play an important role in a child's development. I father passed away about the time my oldest son was getting ready to turn a year old. My youngest son was born well after my dad died. The good thing was my dad got a chance to a son born to carry on the family name. That is very important to many people. The bad thing was he never got a chance to see our second son born. I would have loved to have had him around longer and pass some of his wisdom to our sons. He was an old school, World War II veteran and a great dad to me. He is missed.
