One Year Ago Today

Tue Aug 19, 2008 1:25 am

Today ( 8/18/08) is the one year anniversary of my mom's death. This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal with. I am on the verge, hopefully, of fullfilling my dream of becoming an airline pilot. She knew how much I love aviation and how much I want to fly. This picture I took a few years ago, reminds me of her everytime I look at it. When I took it, I knew this pic was special. It was during the reminance of Hurricane Jeanne. I have never before or since have seen the sky like this. Comments on this post are welcome, and also your stories and pics on A.Net that bring you back to loved ones lost.

Two of three of my moms have died. It hard for me to think about yet sometimes thats only the thing I can think about. There are times where I feel them watching over me. See my IM.

check now. It was brutal enough for me to loose my adopted mom but loosing my birth took a toll as I had just met her 1 year ago.

When you have someone like your mother pass away, it is without a doubt the hardest of people to have leave you. I would imagine the only one that would come as close would be that of a child. March 16th was three years that my mother passed. I do know what you are feeling. I won't be so crass as to say that it will get easier. Right now you don't want to hear that, so I will tell you that I will remember you in my prayers tonight and know that all of us here feel your sadness today.

Thanks Skyhawk,


That means alot to me. I am truly sorry for your loss as well. When something like this happens, you know how precious life is. My mom suffered for 17 years after a car accident and I think her body just gave out on her. It was an honor to be her son, she taught me more than I could ever want to know about life. No matter where we come from, what color we are, what religion we are, what country we come from. I think we all can agree that a mother's love is something no one can take from us.

Now that I think about both my mothers passed away within 1 month of each other. Seems pretty odd to me despite a 4 year difference.

I feel your pain, man. My dad died a year ago on August 12 from alzheimers at the age of 56. It's tough. My thoughts are with you.
