My mom died tonight

I was fortunate enough to be with her.

Her eyes had been open all day but her breathing kept getting more and more labored. Finally, I promised her again we would be okay and that she could go. Then she just closed her eyes and was gone.

Both my parents are gone. I知 heartbroken and numb.

How will I explain this to DS?

Ohhh! My eyes welled up with tears as I read your words! I am so so very sorry! I hope you have others there so you can hold on tight to each other! As hard as I'm sure it must have been, I'm glad you were there for her! I will be praying for your family as you go through the very painful loss and grieving period...

My deepest sympathies to you at this sorrow filled time. It must be a comfort to you that you were with her at the end. You gave her a gift in knowing that you will take care of everyone here so she could go home. Take care of you first so you can take care of the rest.

I'm so sorry, hOkie. It's such a hard thing to go through. Everything inside of you is grieving, mixed up with conflicting emotions, sadness, and a deep sense of loss. Just don't forget that you also have love at hand to help you through this. The love between you two doesn't leave simply because her body gave out. The human body can only go so long, but love will endure through not only memories but also through new events in your life that you share with your mother with your mind.

The body is a shell. Your mother is the essence or spirit that used that shell while it could. She's still there with you.

I am so sorry to hear of your sad news. When my father died, he was at home and DS (7) and I were at my parents. We told DS that grandpa痴 body was so tired that it couldn稚 fight off the sickness any more (he had cancer). Then we let him talk about it and questions when he needed to. We were fortunate, because there was a fantastic hospice organization helping. The nurse talked to DS as well and it seemed to comfort him. Still bri gs me to tears 3 years later when I remember DS痴 little voice saying Grandpa must be so happy to see his parents, friends and his pets in Heaven.

So sorry for your loss and keeping you in my prayers. I remember when my grandfather passed away and my mother told me he was gone to heaven. I was about 10 years old and all the relatives told me stories about him. Perhaps that is a good way to start the conversation.

My dad died when my oldest son was 3. They were very close. Although ds was pretty young and did not fully understand everything at the time, we continued to talk about "Papa" often and things they did together. Ds is 9 now and he cherishes those memories.

I will keep you and your DS in my prayers. Death is so hard.

It is always so difficult to lose a parent.

Depending on what you have already taught your DS about death, you will find a way to explain it. Children understand, sometimes better than adults.

Deepest sympathy at this time. I am glad you were with her when she passed. My mom has been gone 8 years and I still miss her. Treasure your memories.
Telling your child will be hard. Perhaps for your son, you and he can make a memory book of pictures. Prayers for all.

hOkie - I'm so sorry.



My dad died when I was 7 and my mom when I was 12. When my dad died, (this is late 1960's), my mom involved my brother (he was 10) and I in everything. The wake, funeral, and burial. She explained that my dad would look like he was sleeping but he was still my dad. I remember asking her if he'd have his glasses on. I'm SOOOO glad she included us in all of it. So many people try to shy their children away from death but my mom doing this and making us a part of his death helped all of us heal.

My deepest sympathy to you on your mother's passing. Right after my mother died, I remember telling a friend that I had joined a club that I never wanted to join.

She was your first friend, your first ally, your first confidant. She lives in you as you mother your dear son.

Praying for peace to all of your family.

I am so sorry; losing a loved one is so hard. This book, https://www.amazon.com/s?k=heaven+by...ref=nb_sb_noss has helped me since losing my son. He wrote the book after his son was killed in a motorcycle accident.
