    I'm sorry to hear that. Mine passed in 2001 and I still feel bad about it.

    So sorry for your loss.
    Our mothers are the ones that first teach us about love.
    It's one of the hardest things imaginable to lose them.
    Mine's been gone almost 31 years, I wear a St. Christopher medal she gave me to remember her by.

    My condolences. I'm not sure how I'll deal with it when my mother passes.

    My condolences as well. I am definitely not ready to see mine go, but I have many elderly relatives that are passing away and I feel like I should be better prepared.

    Oh man, I'm sorry to hear that.
    I've seen this coming for mine, and have tried to spend as much time as I can with her. You can't put a price on it.

    I'm sorry to hear that, mine left in 2011 and it still hurts sometimes, as well as lots of other thoughts and feelings and memories.
    She wasn't real fond of the hardships of being old at the end, "old age isn't for sissy's" she'd say.
    Had me in Jefferson hospital in Philly!
    Thanks Mom...

    Very sorry to hear of your loss. Lost my mom the same way in November 2014, she fell and then got pneumonia. Peace and comfort to you and your family.

    Sad news. Wishing you all the best at this time.

    My wife (and sweetheart since we met in '69) died 6 months ago and I can tell you it will take a little time but the hurt does diminish.

    The great memories however are forever.
