Post just lost my mom
O.K. I guess this isn't the place to spill our beans all over, but I would like to say anyway that I have lost my mom about a month ago. April 9th to be precise. It didn't come as a surprise since she was 86 years of age and it did show. Yet she had the strength to go out and live her life as always. Her mind was crystal clear until the end.
We had one last Christmas and New Year (2012/13) together and that was it.
I lost my dad back in November 2011 but somehow I took it with ease. With all due respect: he wasn't much of a dad anyway. When my mom passed away I was devastated. I still am. I guess this happens to most of us.
For all of you guys who still have a mom: every single moment with her is of the highest value for we are literally a part of her and if she is even a half decent person, her love is unconditional.

Just wanted you to know. You guys can be all the badass macho men you want to be. When mom is gone for good, it really hits home. Trust me. I know this sounds way cheezy, but I will go on, on my own because she made me promise.

I'll be fine and ready to be my usual pain in the ass on these boards,
Cheers y'all!

I'm sorry to hear that, buddy.

The temptation is to like what you should like--not what you do like... another temptation is to come up with an interesting reason for liking it that may not actually be the reason you like it.

Sorry to hear that, I love my mom. I always enjoy talking with her politics and whatnot, I can tell her things that I would never feel comfortable telling my dad.

I know what it's like to lose a loved one though, my cousin died in a car crash, it was only a year after she graduated from high school, she was so young and her death left me feeling depressed and angry at the world, I still think about her to this day.

My deepest condolences Reeper. I lost my father when I was 17. Mother still alive but living in my native country. In my case I have been on my own since I was 21 when she remarried and then went to live to another country. Anyway, content that she is old but still alive :-)

Sorry for your loss. Mine passed on 28 years ago. Dad is up there in years, but still going on. I've lived 3/5th of my life without mom, but her impact was imprinted in the early years and I still mourn each year around her birthday. I know how you feel and hope that you will find comfort in the fond memories she left for you.

Sorry to hear this. My own mom passed on May 3 2001. I know how it feels. Best thing to do is remember the good things.

My condolences.

Both my parents are still alive, so while I can't truly understand your pain, I feel for you.
