I wish you were here or I was there so I could hug you tight. I can’t even write about either of my parents’ passings even though it’s been more than 20 years. My mom died in August too. I hate August.

I want to burst into tears and ask you what happened, all the dirty details, but I’m not going to.

Even though it’s important to recognize the 2-year anniversary of this event just keep remembering there is a lifetime of events with her to celebrate.

Poppys last blog post..You’d think I’d have something really profound to write here today. hmm.

Hey… That is truly a hard memory to carry. I’m sure your mother would have done anything to spare you that memory, out of the thousands of wonderful gifts of memory she left you.

May you dwell upon her beauty and humor today and every day.

i fight the last image of my mom all the time. and hers was as peaceful as possible thanks to morphine. my dear shiny, i hate that i can’t help you…that nothing i say can erase the events of that day.

wish i could hug you hard right now. while it doesn’t help, it does help. i think you of all people might understand the truth of that statement.

know that i am sending lots of love your way,

My beautiful, beloved mother’s passing was gentle, but thanks to a botched job by the mortician, my last images of her were horrific. I, too, struggle to erase them from my mind, but 25 years still hasn’t blunted them. You have my sympathies.

I wish I could say it gets better with time, but I haven’t found that to be true.

sharing your experience reflects all the memories and feelings you must have today. You tell the story well…I held my breath for you at each step.

I’ve held the hand of two loved ones as they died. Those memories never leave. They are not easy to revisit…but I am not sure I would want to forget.
