Yesterday morning my momma went home to heaven some time around 4am. She was in her recliner and my dad got up just past 4 to get ready for work and thought she was sleeping so soundly, finally, so he was packing his lunch for the day and trying to be very quiet. After he got ready he went to wake my momma to see if she needed to go to the toilet before he left and when he turned on the light he realized momma was not sleeping. I was here at my house (it's just 3 doors down) just getting up to get showered and dressed to go take care of my momma for the day when the phone rang and my daddy was screaming momma's dead. I ran over there and I saw some things that made me think that she had just passed away not very long before. The hospice nurses are fairly certain she just went to sleep and stopped breathing. I hope she didn't feel any pain. Her memorial service is Monday morning.


Momma was walking and talking and driving in January 2007 and now just 8 months later she is gone.

I will miss momma every day of my life but I know she is free now and in a far better place singing with the angels.

justb---first of all, may your momma rest in peace. She is with her heavenly Father, where there is no more pain. I can imagine how you and your dad feel, and please, please tell him, for me, that my deepest condolences to the entire family. Bless your dad's heart, that picture will forever be in his mind, just like when my son, Rudy, passed here at home, on June 3, 2007. It will soon be 3 months, and it still hurts so much. Let us know what city she is in, and the day when her obit will appear in the paper, okay? May God bless your family. She died in her sleep like an angel. Please don't leave this forum, we would still love to hear from you. It's been about 3 months since my baby departed, and I just cannot leave this forum. God bless us all, and God bless all PALS.

So Very Sorry

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I just lost my mother on 8/13/07 after a 2 1/2 year battle with this devastating disease. I can truly say I feel your pain. I am hurting so bad, that I don't think I will ever get past this. I happened upon this forum while looking for support. I hope you will soon find peace within you so you can continue on. I do have the hope of seeing mom again so I think that will help me through this. Until next time, take care of yourself and pray to God continually and he will help you.

Justb and Sgt.,
I, too, am very sorry for your recent losses. I pray that somehow you will be able to find some peace in all this - knowing that your mom's are no longer suffering is a blessing. I fear that I will be in your shoes as my mother's health has been declining lately. So, I pray for you. God Bless You both!
