Whatever floats your boat...

My Mom passed during the night Friday night.

I got to tell her I loved her because she was
brought home with hospice earlier Friday.

I thought she might rally at wasn't
to be, but I know she wanted to be home
and she had suffered enough.

I can't adequately express my grief. This
can NOT have really happened..but it

Oh Kevin...the love you have for your mother has shone brightly in every single post you've written about her. I'm so, so sorry. I know how alone you must be feeling right now. I know we're all with you in spirit--I hope you know that too. I'm glad she was able to be at home when she passed, though. That had to have eased the transition--for both of you. Much love and positive thoughts for your healing heart. xo Ruth

Kevin, Ruth said it beautifully. I'm so sorry. It took much courage and selfless love to let her go,...I think it may be the most loving (and painful) act of all.
We're with you as you process this *hugging you*.
I'm hoping that very soon you will experience some little cosmic coincidence that makes it clear to you that she is okay, and you will be too. Love to you.

Omigosh, Kevin! I know this is a tremendous loss for you but I can't help but feel grateful that your mom got to spend her last hours in your loving care and that you got to touch her and be close enough for her to feel your presence.

I'm very sorry for your loss, but very glad you were there at the end.

Sorry about your Mom. It is great that she got to spend the last of her time with you. I'm sure that you two being together eased her passing. It is so hard to adjust to that person who seems should be here because they always were. You turn and just expect to see that familiar face... Peace to you!

Oh Kevin, I am so sorry. I know how close you and your mom are. Words cannot express how sad I am for you and your loss. Please know that my thoughts are with you.

Dear Kevin, I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I had some special words that could magically ease your pain. I know with time the pain will ease and your loving memories of your Mom will sustain you as you carrying on. We are all here for you. ((((big hug))))

Hey, Kevin, I just heard the sad news. I imagine this feels to you like the toughest time in a whole series of tough times. I'm sure you feel devastated by the reality of it all. But, on the other have taken the journey of life this far, and have survived this long...I have faith that you will find the strength to go on, to find what you need to survive, to live, maybe even to flourish down the road. I am remembering your icon on LiveVideo, the Superman photo. You don't need to be Superman all the time, Kevin. It's okay to break down and cry and feel weak. Granted, there will be times when you'll need some super-strength to get you through life. But right now, you don't need it. You just need to mourn your beloved mom. I am sorry she has left you physically, but if you pay attention, you can still feel her presence in spirit, and take comfort that she is now an eternal part of the hereafter, and that you will be reunited with her, many years from now. Until then, take good care of yourself, Kevin, and seek any help that you might need. I know your mom would want you to. <3

Kevin, I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a mom is a wrenching loss, I know. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this very sad time.

Hey Kevin, I sorry to hear the news. I'm going into town today for dinner and drinks. I will raise my glass and give a nod to you and your mother today. I'll be thinking about you, sending all my love to you.
