Oh, Mom,

I love you so much, and I'll never stop.

So many people prayed for you. I only hope you're at peace. I'm getting there.

your eldest

I don't know that there are right words to say, but I wanted to tell you that your last couple of posts have been so beautiful. It's so clear how much your mother meant to you, and what a wonderful person she was.

It continues to blow my mind that someone's stupidity took your mom away from you. It just doesn't make any sense to me, even though I know it happens every day, and I am still so sorry for your loss.

Thank you so much. She really was wonderful. I'm really glad for your kindness.

I know your pain, I can sympathize and empathize.

Six months after my Mother passed with cancer my Uncle passed with a rare illness which left a vibant intelligent compation filled man an invalid way before his time. My dad and his sister were very close and therefore our families were closer than most. This is what I told each of his four sons:
It never goes away, but it gets better. The first year is the first everything without. After that you can tell your self I made it through last year, I can do this.

Through rough times I know she is close and nw understands me.

much love and energy,

Re: Mom
I'm so sorry to hear that! It's wonderful that you could be there for your family, though. I appreciate your wisdom. I'll try to keep telling myself that. Thank you!

Love back,

I just wrote a thirty page memoir for class based around unsent letters I had written to an ex boyfriend.

I love the unsentletters community. I wish I had thought of it on my own back in the day. I was a moron and sent them all.

Thank you. You're definitely not intruding, and I appreciate all the outpouring of kindness. I lost my mom in May, and you can feel free to peek around my mom tag or ask anything if you want. I'm sure I'm not as coherent as I like when it comes to that particular topic. You must have been pretty young when you lost your mom. I'm sorry, and sending hugs your way as well.

That was my problem - I was the oldest and pulling the 'had to be strong' thing. It worked, at the time. It's when I'm by myself that it's hard.

Eight years? That's a good long while. I daresay you had it worse, though. Thirteen has just got to be an awful age to lose mom. I'm going to have to look at that book. Thanks!
