View Full Version : SS: My mom just passed...
01-14-2004, 01:04 AM
Just found out a couple hours ago that my mom passed today. Completely out of the blue...She was only 57--no known health problems (aside from being somewhat overweight), no complaints of illness or not feeling well... My dad was checking his email awhile and went upstairs and found her on the bed...What an awful thing, to have to find a loved one dead...
So now we'll be heading home to Minnesota to do the things we all dread, yet are inevitable. I know my dad will be alright, but this is a shock to all of us. :(

:stupid: to everything they said. :( I'm so sorry...

Thanks for all the well-wishes... The hardest part of this so far was having to tell the kids that they lost their grandma. Kids are so resilient but I don't think the reality has set in for them yet.
Thanks again for the kind thoughts, I've got quite a bit to do for the next few days so I'd better get to it.

oh man :(
How old are the kids?

Cynjon, my deepest sympathies. :(
When I lost my Grandmother (the closest person I have ever lost) the thought that was most comforting is that people live on in the lives that they have touched. So you mother lives on in a lot of ways that matter, her beliefs, morals, her way of thinking about things. They were all pased on to you, your kids, and anyone else who spent any significant abount of time with her, in one way or another. When spending time with my cousins I am occational remined of my grandmother in how they say something, a gesture, or just their oppinion on something is exactly how my grandmother would have done it. And I know that she lives on in them, and me. The same will happen to you.
You have the strength to see your way though this. I know it's going to be hard. But have faith.
Good luck, my prayers go with you

They are 6 and 9...at least they are old enough to have their own memories of her.
Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers--we're headed off to the airport. At least we managed to get the nonstop to MSP. Wish us luck!
