Default My mom past on 12-12-12

I havent been on here much over the past few months. I lost my dad on may, 16, 2011 and my mom moved in with us. Well a long story short she was diagnosed with breast cancer in september. The cancer took her down quick and we have basically spent the last 2 months taking care of her hand and foot because she was bed ridden. Sad to say she lost the fight on the morning of 12-12-2012. we are haveing the services tomorrow. Just wanted to share. Once we get all this behind us i will be back looking for deals. Mike

I lost my father eight years ago and my mother about two and a half years ago. I know the anguish, guilt and fear you're dealing with. Believe me though that this is true: someday, it may take a year or two, you will use it to gain strength. You'll be faced with a challenge at some point, and something will click. That click will be "I've been through so much more difficult and so much more hurtful than this, I've got this."

Losing your parents is one of the most painful things than can happen to anyone, perhaps outside of losing a child. You'll realize at some point you've triumphed and no other challenge you face will compare. It will make you stronger.
