I can fully understand how you feel. I lost my Dad a few weeks ago and there is such a void in my heart and soul. God be with you and your family!
Thank you Kathleen. So sorry about your loss also. Yes, time will lessen the shock but they are always in our hearts and minds. I had the best mother in the world and I'm going to miss her terribly.
I'm so sorry. Mothers are very special as I know first hand. Gratitude for God having given her to me is a very strong tool against grief. I firmly believe, He knew that you would have a harder time in watching her suffer a long illness so please comfort yourself in knowing that she is in the room that God has prepared for her and she is happy, well, and at home with God. Every day will get easier, you'll see. I lost my beautiful mother in 2008.
I will keep you in prayer,
Our Lady will help you know her special motherly love in a greater way now.
