Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue Jan 22, 2013, 10:38 AM

My mother pass away early last night. I'm sorry for

not posting this earlier but I just wasn't able.

She had gone into the hospital with the flu (she had the flu shot in Oct) but the dehydration that resulted from it, had caused her kidney's to fail, fluid to build up in the lungs and her heart to be over burdened.

Everyone who knew my mother loved her, she had never met a stranger. I am so grateful to have had her as my mother and to be at her bedside when she passed.

To all of the DUers who were following my posts as I posted from the hospital from my I Phone, I want to thank you for the warmth and generosity of spirit you gave me. I cannot express enough what it meant to me and how much it helped to carry me through this journey.

52. When we came out if her room after, it was

stone cold silent in the hallway. All of the staff was standing there weeping and the ambulatory patients were standing in their doorways, weeping. They all then engulfed us with hugs and the most wonderful words of kindness of my mother. They thanked us for our kindness to them throughout these past weeks. The outpouring of love stunned us in awe.

60. On my very first visit with her she asked me

to bring my paints up. So I went home, gathered them up and took them to her room. Each day, sometimes several times a day she would have me painting different things as she heard that "such and such patient" loves this or that. As per her request I would then take it to their room and hang it on the board in front of their bed. They were all signed "Hugs and Kisses". She was insistent that they have joy to carry them through.

63. She taught me that if you find a penny, don't

put it in your shoes as some say but pass it on to the first stranger you see. "Good luck should always be passed on". Whether it's a penny, nickel, dime, tuney or lunie it always brings a smile to the recipients face, it's truly amazing.

118. I am so sorry you mom is no longer with you. I know you will always treasure your time with her.

Speaking of pennies--since my Mom died, I have found pennies which I know she has left me. On sidewalks, streets, parking lots, many different places. I had heard the "pennies from heaven" notion that when you find a penny, it was from a loved one. I know if your mom so blesses you, you will share them with others, as you have been doing. And you'll continue to see them smile. I have a feeling she'll see those smiles as well.

94. Anyone who sent flowers to my Mum while

she was in the hospital knew that the flowers would invariably end up in another persons room with a label card saying "Hugs and Kisses". Knowing my Mum, we were never offended because we knew she didn't want another feeling unloved or alone.

153. When I was 10 years old I got into a school yard

brawl with another girl. It was a pathetic performance on my part as I couldn't even land one punch and ended up with a real shiner. As my Mum was putting ice on my cheek in complete silence which let me know her absolute displeasure in what I had done, she then cupped me face in her hands and said "we weren't given hands to harm another but to lift them up". She made me do the evening dishes for the old chap across the lane for a week

my mom passed away 25 years ago, and it is still hard. Time makes it a little easier, but they are never truly gone (luckily) and some grief and sadness does remain (unfortunately).

Sounds like my mom and your mom were quite alike. No one was a stranger to my mom!

35. it sounds unexpected?

I think for a few days at least after somebody passes
away, they are still very much alive nearby and can
communicate to us. It may sound crazy and I'm a
profound skeptic. It is subtle but it has happened so
many times that I've come to believe it. People don't
really die. It's just a transfer, a big change. I never
will believe that all of the love and learning and
feeling human beings do here can die and disappear.
We're all part of a beautiful, deathless ocean.

"Death is just the relationship of our body to this earth."
What do you remember most and best about her?
My mother died in 2000 and I am still trying to remember
her, and still wondering who was she?

best wishes to get through, letting yourself feel
& remember.

I know, from experience, how very difficult losing out parents is - take one step at a time. Find a picture of her that you love and fix that image in your mind - you want to remember her smile and her laugh. You'll never forget her love.

Hugs.

40. And, the journey is not over. Here's hoping you'll find solace here and

from other places. May your mom's gentle wisdom appear more often to you now.

My father,then my younger brother, then my mother all passed in the last few years. Each day I marvel at all the little and big things they taught me.

"She had never met a stranger" is powerful sentiment and a such a fitting tribute. Could any of us ask for more than that in life?

I am really touched by your post expressing the person that your mom was to you and to so many others. Knowing that will sustain you in these early days, as I am sure you miss her very much.

she visited me in my dreams and I felt the dreams were real. She told me she would always be watching over me and would always hear me when I talked with her.

You can be as alike to her as you want to be. But, be yourself of course since she already lives inside you. One can see that in what you wrote.

There are no words that I as a stranger can write that will make the pain go away, but know that in time... in time... it does get better. May your mother's name be remembered for a blessing. May you find strength and love and support where you need it, now and always.

70. I'm sorry to hear about your Mom.

Mom's are special. I lost mine when I was 17, and no matter how old you are when you lose your parents, it's too early. There's something very strange about the realization that the people who are responsible for bringing you into this world are no longer around.

I don't know how old you are, but no matter your age the loss of a parent hurts.

Just remember that the love you shared never dies, and as long as you're alive, they live as well because of the memories of them you keep alive. All those times when it was just you and your parent--no one else--those are snapshots of time that are yours alone now.

Your Mother must have been a very special person, because of what you've written about her. I'm very sorry that she's passed away.

Sending good thoughts your way, and will hope you find strength through the love you shared with your Mom.

Mothers are forever, even though we lose them in death. I know you don't feel that way now since you loss is so recent and ravaging you so cruelly.

Take me out in your times of joy, sorrow or reflection
I'll be there for you."

87. I can sadly say, I know how you feel.

I grew up in a generation in which it wasn't manly to cry. When my mother had a massive stroke, they kept her alive long enough for all us kids to get a chance to say goodbye. When I walked into that room I began to bawl uncontrollably. Seeing my beautiful mother on her death bed in a coma was just too much to bear. That was Dec. 20, 2001 and today I can happily reminisce about my lovely mother without the pain. Of course I still miss her, but time healed the wound.

My mother passed away 11 years ago at the age of 94. She came to me in my sleep. I asked her, "What are you doing here? You died." She said, "I did? Now what have I gone and done?" In life, that was always what she said when she messed something up. I woke with a smile and told everyone in the family. They also smiled - it was so much "her." May your mom come to you and leave you with a smile too.

121. I'm so sorry...I've thought of your mom often in the last few days...

and I meant to pm you to see how you both were feeling, but after we exchanged messages I got much sicker so I haven't been on here.

I am so so very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Nothing anyone can say or do will take away your sorrow, but know that your mother will continue to live as long as you do, through your love and remembrances. In time, the tears will subside, however slowly, and will be replaced by the smile that will cross your face when you think of her.

Although my parents are both alive, my own dearest Grandma died in my arms 23 years ago and not a day has gone by that I don't think of her. And as I have slipped into middle age, I see her own face when I look in the mirror and hear her clearly every time I laugh. The "mystic chords of memory" will keep your mother with you for the rest of your days.

Just remember, not only were you blessed with such a mother, but she was blessed by having such a devoted and loving child.

Sounds very similar to my own Mother's passing. So I know the emptiness you're feeling. Memories are your salvation, it's not just a nice thing to say at a time like this. Your memories of your precious relationship with her will get you through this. Even after she's gone, she's there. She's in the blood that flows around in your body, and she's in your mind in the memories.

Deepest condolences to you and your family.

My mom passed in March 2011 from a very aggressive form of cancer. She was diagnosed in November 2010 and a short four months later she died. I was devastated. As time goes on, the pain seems to subside but it still lingers and I think the pain will always be there. It seems like everyday I think about her in one way or another. This has been some of what I have experienced with the death of a loved one.

I know how painful it can be and I wish you Godspeed on your healing from a great loss.

Again, I'm sincerely sorry for your loss.

166. I remember one day, when I was 14, getting home from school

Last edited Wed Jan 23, 2013, 02:40 AM - Edit history (1)

to find this young, good looking chap eating Shepherds Pie at the kitchen table. My Mum was washing some dishes and she turned and said "Suzie, this is our new house mate Randy". Now things had been kind if tense in the house before this, owing to the fact that food had gone missing as of late, from the refrigerator and the cupboards. Randy smoked and back then so did my Mum, so she offered him a fag. While they were smoking and chit chatting, in walks my brother and I swear he turned white as snow. "Harold, Randy here is under the impression that we put up company in the crawl space below." Her tone let you know that her knickers were in a knot.

Randy was from Florida and had come up to Canada because he didn't want to go to Vietnam. He had been living in our basement which was literally a crawl space of dirt, for the past week at my brithers insistence. The missing food and odd noises we had been experiencing, were not in our heads. Randy stayed with us for about five months and he never failed to send a Christmas card and anniversary card (the day he was introduced to Shepherds Pie) to my Mum. She adored the pictures of his family all these years.

I rang Randy today and we both wept.

131. "Quick now, here, now, always- A condition of complete simplicity, Costing not less than everything"

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple­tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half­heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always-
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in­folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.

T.S. Eliot - Four Quartets - 1943

I don't have the right to say what this means to you and your mother, arthritisR_US, it's just something that I have found helpful in my own experience of those who have passed on.

135. just in another room

When my dad died in 2000, ive always thought of him in the other room, He used to do the bills ,listen to his classical music, sometimes all day ( probably to get away from us). Sorry for your lose. You dont really get over it, you just get better with it.

136. I am very sorry you lost your mom

I almost lost mine 10 years ago to a brain aneurysm and have been thankful every day since that she is still with me. Even being a daddy's girl, there is nothing like a mothers love.

160. Many years ago, after my Mum lost much of her

sight I took her over several containers of homemade soup I had made for her. The next day she rang me up raving about the soup and asking me if she could have more. I was pleased she enjoyed it so but astounded she had eaten five containers worth, as she ate like a bird. She then said she must have misplaced four of them. Later I went to her flat with more, going down the hall I ran into a few of her neighbours who thanked me profusely for the wonderful soup. Ever since then, I took her over a bag of containers for her and another bag in case she misplaced the first.

164. arthritisR_US

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your beloved mother. You have many wonderful memories of her that are yours forever and which will always remain precious. But it sounds as if you were as much a blessing to her as she was to you, and you can take comfort in that. As your mom already has.

Peace to you, your family and to all the "strangers" whose lives were touched by your mother.

No matter how old are, when a parent dies you feel like an orphan. Again, I am very sorry but it was a good thing that you were able to be there with her. Peace and Love to you.
