28 May 2013

I can usually find words when I need them or want them.

But not today.

Maybe tomorrow. Or next week.

Tonight, all I can tell you is that my mom died today. She was 82 years old, and tomorrow would have been her and my dad's 64th anniversary, had they both lived.

My relationship with her was complicated, and her death was not unexpected, but it still stings like crazy.

Today just sucks on so many levels.

Oh Karen, our thoughts are with you-

Yeah, I think next year, we shouldn't have a May 28th. This really is sucky.

Terri said...

I'm so sorry Karen. Hugs to you and your family.

Nancy said...

So sorry. It's so hard to lose your mom. Bad news all around today.

Thinking of you.

Jan Scholl said...

Complicated with mom...I certainly understand that. Sending hugs, and I can only hope, my kids uncomplicate with me, because I didn't with my mom.

Sending love.

I am sorry you lost your Mom--even though mine's been gone for more than 30 years, I still think about her often. Complicated relations or not, it's very hard to lose the one who gave you life. Much love.

I am so sorry for you, Karen. There are no words, just know I am thinking of you. Death is so final, I guess that is what I am trying to come to grips with. Big Hugs to you!

I am so sorry to read about her passing. May your next few days be filled with love and kindness from those around you, a plenty of purrs and lap sitting from your two furry kids.

I am so sorry. I understand the "complicated" relationship - my mother and I also had issues thru the years.

I will keep you and your family in my thoughts

I am so sorry, Thumper. I lost my Mom a few years ago and know how you feel, as much as one person can know how another feels. The kitties send comforting purrs and I send my love and hugs.
