A special Lady

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I know this is the wrong forum, but please understand..
As I sit here wondering. I got to thinking about a woman I have known since childhood.This lady never refused to help anyone whether she knew them or not.She would not buy anything for herself, so that she could give to her family, and friends.I never saw anyone that did not like her..Everyone always asked how Ms C, was doing. The highest praise i can possibly give her is, I never met a better person in life, who gave SO much, for so little..She never ever met a stranger she did not like. I love her with all my heart, and words cannot possibly convey the loss I feel tonight.She was my MOM, and I lost her at 5:15 this afternoon. This was the only place I could think of to get it off my chest.

She 100% fit her name Mary Christmas , was her name. Christmas won't be the same without her.

Love your parents if you got em..You never know when you might lose em...

VERY proud son

Lee, My heart goes out to you. The footprints she left behind her will last in your heart forever.
The footprints she left on this world will be a lasting tribute to an amazing woman.
Love and prayers as you remember her.

As a fairly recent orphan myself, LeeX, you have my deepest condolences. If it's any consolation, she made the world a better place and left behind a lot of love. There's not more a person can do with a lifetime.

Lee, so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Both of my parents have passed away in the last few years, and while the pain of their loss slowly fades away, the memory of their lives and love and what they have left with you never do.

Well said tribute Lee and very heartfelt. Your faith and great family will help you at this time.

Very sorry to hear this Lee. I too can relate and wish you the best. Having met you and your family, you of course realize you still have two very special ladies at your side.

Oh, Lee, my heart breaks for you. I hope the coming days, weeks and months bring you peace in your heart knowing how much she loved you and how much you loved her. Take care of yourself.

Aw, Lee that is terrible... I get the feeling that you take great solace in knowing that she was such a great person, as you should. My deepest condolences- just never forget she's still with you, man. I'm sure she felt every bit as lucky to have you for a son as you felt for having her as a mother- continue to make mom proud, brotha!

Lee, buddy, I'm so sorry to hear this, my deepest condolences. I'm sure she left this world with the great satisfaction of raising an outstanding son. My thoughts are with you and your family. Take care and I hope to see you soon high up in the mountains, a little closer to her.

I am very sorry about the loss of your Mom. Having lost my mother back in February, I can empathize with you. One does not know how losing a parent feels until it happens to you. Keep your head up and take this time to grieve.

I lost both of mine in the past couple years too.

Your post wakens emotions regarding the passing of my father years ago and while I had brothers and a mother to discuss his death and its consequences, it was in a strange way unsatisfactory. I just couldn’t share in the way I needed amongst them. Fortunately I was reminded by many people, people like those who knew your mother, just how my father touched and helped them along the way. They of course helped me in ways I'm still reminded almost daily.

You are fortunate to know those people who found your wonderful mother so influential and of blessing to their life. I’m also certain there are many more folks who are looking to connect and express their grief about the loss of your mother. Better put; they are all looking for you so they may share once again or for the first time their many stories of just how significant your mother was...and still is. Find them Lee and your spirits will rise, perhaps including new fond memories so shared by others. All of which represent a further blessing your mother has left you. Lee, God bless.

I lost my father in August of 06. There has been a huge gap in my life that I still notice especially during the holidays. My wife lost her mom last Sunday right before Thanksgiving Thanks for sharing what a wonderful person she has been, and thank you for reminding me that I should call my mom more often. Remember the wonderful mother you had and the wonderful person everyone around her had, and not so much what you have lost. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel. I'm sure she is now conversing and socializing with others that have passed and will be watching you every moment.
Heartfelt condolences;

Lee, my condolences. Live a life that will reflect on her.

I am fighting tears as I write this, seriously.

My deepest condolences.....having lost my mother abruptly when she was only 48, she was hit by a car while she was crossing the street. I know the pain you must feel. She as my everything and it seems like your mom was yours too. I hope that she is in a better place and is proud of her son, the son who speaks so highly of her.

Lee, my sincere condolences. I lost my mother earlier and you can see many of us have been through what you are now feeling. Cherish your memories and live the life lessons she taught you.

Thanks for sharing that beautiful tribute to your mom. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family and all those who are feeling this loss. It sounds like she will be missed by many.

Lee I certainly share your pain, though mom has been gone much longer for me. Fill the void she leaves with all the love that she left you. Embrace your family and friends, and she will always be a part of you.

Lee, that is a beautiful tribute...

She will live on in your heart, the energy she gave, and the person she was. You can always talk with her; she's there for you. May there be the grace of peace in the midst of the pain.

Fine mother. Fine son.

When my mother died, I looked at her face, and said, "You did good, Mom. Thanks!"

Sounds like your mom did some good and great in this world. I'm sad for you at her loss. I'm happy for you to have received her gifts.

Take care,

Thank you very much for all the kind replies. They helped us a lot, and I even took them around the room with the family so they could read them. It is comforting to know that people that do not even know you, and some who do, care enough to post.
I just happened to be by myself at the time I first posted, and turned to the friends I had on this forum to try, and comfort me(Selfish I Know), but it worked
We buried her today, and now we start the healing process..

Thanks for the replies
