    So sorry to hear of that. My condolences on your loss. Lost my mother in 2003 so I feel your pain. I've posted this before but when my mother passed I remembered something that my mother's oldest brother told me when his mother,my grandmother passed away. He said," when a man loses his mother,he loses the best friend he'll ever have in this world ".

    I feel you bro. I lost my mother two months ago. At the time I wasn't certain how I would handle it, but I can let you know that things will improve. For readers that still have your moms, hug them tight; it's the only unconditional love most of us will ever know. Take care Brad.

    Sorry to hear this.You have mentioned over the last few years that you have been taking care of your mom and I always thought that was one of the best things a son could do...

    Lost mine 10 years ago and still miss her...

    thanks everyone...your words do help ease my sadness

    i am sorry for your loss and thanks

    thanks...it was tough but also i felt privileged to be able to care for her...my best gift to her was to be able to keep her out of a facility

    When you're feeling up to it, you got yourself a fine song lyric / song subject right there.

    thanks everyone

    as good as i can i guess...my sister and her kids and grand kid are here...other than being the opposite of me and my mom (they are messy...me and mom are not) its not bad having some company...but they live in florida and most likely will leave thursday...so at that point ill be alone alone...not just missing my mom but not having her presence here...im preparing for it...just like i was preparing for her to go...as the docs were telling us she isnt getting better for a few days...but they are pretty disruptive and ill be glad they arent here :lol: then the real pain of my mom not being here will start

    i have a couple leads on jobs and ill be looking hard for one...and my friend owns a bike shop and said come and build bikes for something to do or just come to have company...so im dealing with it ok but tomorrow is the viewing and wednesday is the funeral...so ill feel it again like i did the day she passed

    thanks for asking!

    I'm very sorry to hear this. My condolences.

    In a way I feel like my fellow TDPRI members are part of an extended family...after years of reading peoples' posts I feel like I've really gotten to know some of you even though we've never met in person. May your mom rest in peace.

    Sorry to hear man. I'm dreading the day this happens to my mom. Our moms live forever through our hearts.
