My mother has finally gone up to heaven where she will no longer be in pain. She lost her battle with cancer last night at the age of 82.

Tim, sorry to hear the sad news. I lost my mother almost a year ago (september 26) to a short battle with cancer, she was also 82. The only comfort I can offer is that it does get easier, although you will always miss her.

God bless,

I lost my dad in 94. It’s hard losing a parent. But you are right… in Heaven she will feel no pain.

Sorry for your loss, Tim. My mom died about a year ago at 98 and the way I look at it, she is ins a better place and not suffering from all the earthly pains she had to live with. It is never easy, but being with God beats this mess we have!!.
Remember now she lives in you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make her proud!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tim, thanks for your post. Here’s hoping my mom can join her soon as she has been languishing in a nursing home bed for over a year.

Sorry for your loss Tim – losing a parent is one of the most difficult thing that a person can go through. Knowing that she is no longer suffering is some consolation.

Nothing makes it easy but we all must face it. Lost my aunt in Oct. Thankfully my mother has been clear for going on 4 years.

Just remember part of her will always be with you.
