    You can bet she did. I've been there & I know it mattered. In the end, it's all we have.

    Brad, I'm sorry for your loss. Somehow those words don't convey what I wish I could convey. My dad brought us to California, 2300 miles from our home in Alabama, then took off and left us on our own to fend for ourselves. I was around 6 or 7 at the time. Somehow my mom eked out a living for us and found a new life, and stayed in California. I didn't fully understand what this took until I started a family of my own. It's odd having a mom for a role model, but I took her values not my dad's and I always provided for my family. I owe most of what I've learned and accumulated in my travels through life to the things I learned from my mom.

    I understand your feelings about losing your mom, I suppose it's difficult when anyone loses their mother, because she is the only person on this earth that will always love you no matter what you do. I wish you the best. In time you'll adapt, but not in a month, maybe not in a year, but having lost both my Mother and Father, and a son, I know that life goes on, that's the way we are made. Give it some time, it will get better.

    I am also very sorry for your loss.

    I lost mine on New Year's Eve, Dec 31st 2014 in very similar circumstances about a month after she broke her hip in a fall. She died just a week away from her 87th birthday.

    Brad, my late mother loved wind chimes. She had them since we were kids and would always have several hanging at her house. They were her thing. After her funeral, we went back to my brother's house. As we pulled into his driveway we noticed wind chimes hanging from the tree by his front door. We all stood there in shock. We were then greeted by a gentleman we had never seen. He said "Im moving-in next door. I hope you're not mad, but something compelled me to hang my wind chimes in your tree."

    Trust me, she'll be with you until you are reunited on the other side.

    That right there is really beautiful BP. I'm no expert at this stuff but as much as you were there for her when she really needed you I just know she'd want you to have full peace of mind. I just know she'd want you to be happy.

    I always enjoyed reading your posts and your sense of humor. Let that humor and spirit comfort you if you can. You're a good man...take care friend.

    Sorry to hear that. I lost my mom two years ago, it's not an easy thing to go through. Keep close to family and keep the channels open.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I had a father who became my best friend in his later years, and all I can add is that I still have a bunch of good memories with me every single day. You will too.
