Re: Prayers for Mom

She is with you Mike, you will feel her there as time passes. When that happens over time you will smile and say (Hi Mom) She must have been a great person !!
God Bless.

Re: Prayers for Mom

Mike, I'm very sorry for the loss of your mother, and friend. My condolences to you, and your family. While there is nothing that will lessen your grief, at least you can take some comfort in knowing that your mother is no longer in any pain, or discomfort, and that she is now at peace in Heaven. I'm sure that she, and your friend, are now, and will continue to be watching over you, and your family too.


Dave

Re: Prayers for Mom

Thanks again guys. Today's service was beautiful, and we had an amazing turnout of family and friends.

The funeral home part was the hardest, knowing once I walked out of that room, they were closing the casket, and I'd never see my mom again in this lifetime.

The cemetery wasn't too bad. I think the long drive helped.

Afterwards, we had lunch at a nice restaurant (open only to us), and I sat with my wife, best man, and one of my other best friends (I call her my second sister). That was really really helpful.


The boys were amazing. My youngest (8) looked a little sad, but didn't cry at all. He didn't want to go near the casket, and we didn't force him to.

My oldest (12) was a trooper. I went up to the casket with him, showed him how to pay respects and say goodbye, and he then stood with me and my wife in the receiving line. He never cried until he saw me crying, which was on overdrive when I stood up at the end to thank everyone for coming. I felt so very lucky to have all those people there to support us.

At the cemetery, I took them both over to the (now closed) casket and we told her we loved her, and said goodbye. My oldest then added, "I'll see you in heaven someday." At that point, I hugged him and cried some more. He didn't, he was amazingly calm about it.

God bless you Mike. Glad to hear all went well, especially with the boys. It's not easy for adults, not to mention children. So it's a blessing they took it the way they did.

God helps us through trying times if we trust Him, remember that.

Re: Prayers for Mom

Absolutely true, thanks Andrew.

I vividly remember my first loss as a child, I was 13, it was my maternal grandfather, and I was a disaster. I am so grateful that my boys have been so strong through this.

I also doubt that it's a coincidence that the first reply after my last post came from someone named after an apostle...

Re: Prayers for Mom

I lost my Mother 5 years ago. She is buried with my Father who past 56 years ago. I was 8 years old when he past. To keep the memories going we visit the grave site mostly on Holidays, Memorial Days and their birthdays Father's Day, and Mother's Day. The site is a half a mile away. Both my parents were World War II veterans. We take our whole family, some kneel down and say a prayer. It really keeps the memories going. Every year on Memorial weekend they have a mass outside at the grave site. Hundreds of people show up. We do the same with my wife's family. Its the best way we can deal with it.

Mike:
I just learned who that woman was--I had seen the reports on the TV news after the accident happened,but they either didn't say her name,or I missed hearing it..
My neighbor saves the daily papers and gives them to me to read at the end of the week,and I was shocked and saddened when I read the obituary notice a short time ago..(for some reason the Aug.12th issue didn't get to me till today)..

I was her neighbor,I lived right across from her,from age 12 until I was 18 and my family lived it Taunton MA..!.she used to ride the same school bus ,I knew her and her sisters and brother...

I remember her being very pretty,and a quiet serious person,I am saddened to know she was killed so tragically..
I can remember seeing her sitting on their front steps ,always reading a book.
It is a small world it seems...


My condolences again on her loss,and your mom...

Re: Prayers for Mom

Wow, yes that definitely sounds like her.

They withheld her name overnight so that family could be notified. Once her name became public, accolades and condolences poured in from around the globe.
