Farewell to Another Mom

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Did you ever notice that death never comes at a convenient time? We are supposed to re-open our new studio on Monday. So much for that.

It seems to be the season for Good Bye. Four months shy of her 91st birthday, my Mom died in her sleep last night. Although she died of natural causes, for the past two years, she had no idea who I was, so she ends her life without knowing any of the things that I have accomplished. While longevity runs frequently in my family, {my dad died before his 93rd birthday} it is not always a blessing.

Hopefully we don't go nuts in the process of finding a place to board Giselle, moving the studio and dealing with airports.

Thank you mom for never letting me be anything less than what I can be.

Sad to hear but it's likely a blessing for everyone. If the quality of life is gone it's probably best for her to be able to move on. When I see my Mother I spoon feed her meals and she can't communicate at all, she may or may not know who I am. Peaceful sleep is less painful.

Losing a loved one is never easy. I lost my mom, somewhat unexpedtedly, last December. It still hurts. I have boxes of pictures and other items I shipped back here that remain unopened.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sincere condolences, Lisamarie. For what it's worth, I suspect that your mother did, in fact, know much of what you've accomplished. She knew who you were, and your accomplishments are surely not limited to the past few years. Take heart in that!

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

LM, let me join in everyone's expressions of sympathy and support. Bob is right, I'm sure, you mother did have some sense of your strenths and successes. Yet, seeing her fade is the hardest thing any child can do. May you find the strength to continue on.

Sympathy, and empathy, from Colleen and me, Lisa. What Bob Barnes said is true - she knew who you were and she knew your strengths. Take heart in that her passing was not painful. For better or for worse, my mother was all too aware, right up to the night of her death. Yes, there's a double edged sword,but no matter which way it cuts, to lose a parent, a parent older or younger than ninety, is painful. The pain and sorrow lasts forever - at least, it does with me - but it becomes something one just lives with as live goes on. Take care of yourself, please. Our thoughts are with you.

So sorry for your loss. May you remember the good times and celebrate her life. Loss for me always reminds me how important it is to make the best of today.

Likewise, my sincere condolences go out to you. My grandmother went through much of the same and Bob Barnes is correct....there are/were times when the disease(s) ease off, if not for only a few moments, unfortunately it's difficult to recognize these times right off the bat...if at all, as they are not always in the most talkative moods at those times.

Very sorry to hear of your loss. Somehow I think your mother saw your success - your self-confidence and tenacity to succeed is your success and I'm sure she saw those qualities long ago. It sounds like your mother had a rich and full life - remember the good times and cherish all the time you had together.

All our thoughts and prayers are with you Lisamarie. The time is never right and no matter how well we are prepared, it is still always a shock. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
