My Mother Just Died.....

Thu Jun 02, 2005 3:41 pm

She always flew right seat and taught me to fly the same.... I'll miss her horribly. Any thoughts?

All my most sincere condolences.
It is unfortunate that all good people have to leave us someday.
I trust you will recall all the fond memories you had with her forever.
May she rest in peace.

I'm so sorry to hear the news. Judging by your age group, it seems like she lived a long and fulfilling life.

While the loss of any loved one is always hard, the loss of a parent - mother or father - is especially hard. These were the people we always relied on for comfort and counsel. Losing that means losing a part of who we are.

My dad died five years ago and there are still times when something happens in my day that I start to call him on the phone to talk with him about it before remembering he is no longer a phone call away.

My sincerest condolences on your loss. There really are no sufficient words to ease your sorrow at this moment. Just know that while the hole never completely goes away, it does get easier with time.

I can only agree with what mxctrlr has said. Having lost my father 2 years ago I can sympathise with what you are going through.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Remember your mom for the "good" things, and cherish the lessons learned from the "bad." Give yourself time to mourn, but remember that she raised you for life, not regret. God bless you.

Yes. Grief affects different people different ways. Perhaps she isn't quite thinking straight right now?

Thank you. All of you. My Mother WAS a very special person (aren't all of them?).....she had flying stories which would bring tears of laughter to all of you.

I've been doing all the usual things..... one of them was making sure she actually is buried in the correct place! On visiting our family plot, I realized that one of the long lost great grandmother's had been buried BACKWARDS! Making her appear as though she belonged to another family!

My Mother's sense of humor would have certainly kicked in on that one! Among other things she taught me to: pour coffee in heavy turbulence; stay calm while scud running; how to convince the "Left Seat" to land, play pool and get laid instead of becoming a spot of DNA on a hillside; how to look like Coco Chanel in a pinch...... only better,...... and most of all; she taught me to love 'your man' and 'be true to yourself'.

Thanks again,
