A Special Mom


Published: February 2006

Mom loved us from our first breath, held our hands through the years, guided us along the paths that our lives took, taught us that there is nothing we can't make it through to hold our faith and follow our hearts. She gave us her all and asked nothing in return.

She gave us all the stepping stones in life to become the people we are today, and through it all she stood proud of us all. Her family (husband, children and grandchildren) meant everything in the world to her.

It will be hard on us to let her go physically, but we carry her with us each and everyday in our hearts and our thoughts. The sun rising will remind us of the warmth of her love. Flowers blooming will remind us of her love for life. Our trials and tribulations will remind us of how strong willed she was. There's a part of her in each and every person that hears or reads this and we can all be so honored that she was a part of our lives.

We will always love you mom, wife, and grandmother. We will carry you with us each day in our hearts. We will mourn our loss but rejoice that you are in a better place sitting with your mother and loved ones, awaiting our arrival one day.

Our Mum passed today 19th March 2014 at the age of 84. Over the last year, She suffered two to three strokes, fell and broke her hip and quite recently was diagnosed with lymphoma. Throughout all she accepted all that happened and only in the last three days did she deteriorate rapidly. Last night I prayed to God to do what he thought was best so she did not suffer. He did.
Mum gave us her all, she was a peacemaker as most women of that era were.
May she rest in peace and we will meet someday.

Her name was Robin. She was my stepmom. She was a breast cancer survivor for 8 yrs until one day we received the horrible news. Last year in July 2011 Robin was diagnosed with bone cancer and although she put up one heck of a fight she passed yesterday June 9th 2012 at 5:30 pm. Robin took me under her wing and cared for me like one of her own children. She was a beautiful woman and I have an empty void that feels it will never be filled. I was not with Robin when she passed ,instead I planned on going to see her in 5 days, but unfortunately tomorrow never came for her and I will forever regret my decision. It's time for me to start my healing process and as crazy as it may sound sharing Robins story on here helped a bit. She's forever in my heart and for now I'll speak to her in dreams.

May 20 2012 my Mom passed away at 55 from complications of being in a diabetic coma. I was called by my step dad on Thursday morning he was taking Mom to the ER she hurt her back really bad. He called me again later saying they were home and she was on pain killers and a muscle relaxers. I couldn't see her till Saturday. When I arrived she was sitting in a chair slumped sideways. I asked my aunt if anyone had checked her sugar level (she had been a diabetic for about 18 years) She told me Mom's meter was out of strips. We tried to wake her but she couldn't stay awake, she tried to talk but we couldn't understand her. Called 911 and had her taken back to the hospital. She was put on life support Sunday morning, we were told her body was shutting down because her sugar was so high and it was unlikely she'd recover. As a family we decided to take her off life support. She took a few breaths and passed 7 minutes after. She was my family's rock and will be missed by many! I LOVE YOU MOMMY!!!

When my mom died of cancer I felt like my life just hit a solid brick wall. The day she passed I remember helping her up and into the bathroom were she fell and stopped breathing. I didn't know what to do so I woke up my older brother and he woke up my dad and then called 911 and they came and worked on her for a good 30 minutes and took her to the hospital. When we got to the hospital we were waiting in the waiting room when the doctor came in and told us that she had passed. I didn't even get to say goodbye to her because my dad said I'm too young. Her death date is March 15, 2011. No one could possibly replace her in my heart and I am praying that I will eventually accept the fact that she's gone. I LOVE YOU MOM!!!!!

When my mom died it felt like my world was coming to an end! The day she passed I whispered in her ear, "mommy its ok to let go!" she was 50 years old and in a coma, she had been breathing one breathe a minute all day we decided to go get lunch. By the time we sat down to eat the nurse came down with tears in her eyes screaming "She's gone I'm so so sorry" By the time I got up there it was too late and there was nothing I could do she was already gone!
Her death date is November 12,2004! She still has that special place in my heart and no one will ever take her place... Not even my FOSTER PARENT!
