My mom passed away
Old 02-20-2020, 08:48 AM

My mom, Pat, passed away early this morning. She had been unconscious for about 24 hours, sadly I wasnít there. My Dad convinced me to go home because it couldíve went on for a couple days and I was going to go back first thing in the morning. The nurse was with her, and Iím ok with that.

We had so much fun together especially in my 30s when I had moved into my house. We spent hours working inside and outside in the garden. She was my mom, my best friend. I wouldnít normally take my three bereavement days but I know she wouldíve said, ďyouíre crazy not to take them!Ē So I will take them and do some self-care on those days. The picture below was taken about 18 years ago but itís really how I remember her best, it captures her spirit perfectly!

I truly believe loved ones sometimes wait until they are alone to pass. Iíve seen it happen to both my MIL with her mom and my mom with my grandma. They were both with their moms 24:7 at the end and both of them werenít there the moment their moms passed.

Iím very sorry for your loss. Take all the time you need. Take care of yourself.

I am so sorry that you did not get more time with her. The picture is lovely that you shared, and hopefully, she is in Heaven, pain-free and gardening once again. She has earned her wings. You are wise to take all the time you need. Grief often hits in waves at unexpected times, and you need to be with your family now.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Mom's love us more than anyone. I would definitely take her advice. My mom passed away in October and I constantly hear her voice in my head telling me to take care of myself. I guess they never really leave us. Take care.

So sorry for your loss! LOVE the pic of your mom. Reminds me of my mom and her constantly digging with a shovel to plant things. My mom also had short, gray hair!

You will miss her greatly, but will also feel her presence daily.

Glad you are taking your 3 days!!!

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet mom. I love the happy picture of her- thank you for sharing her with us.

My mom also waited until everyone left and was just with her hospice angel, whom she liked and trusted. Itís so hard to lose your mom, I miss my mom every day. Weíre here for you if you need us.

May your mother rest in peace. I remember when I dad passed 3 years ago, some one reminded me that he was no alone when he passed, his love ones were there to greet him. That gave me so much comfort as he died early in the morning too. Hold those memories close.

Blessings!
