I lost my mom yesterday to Lung Cancer. This is the hardest thing I have faced since I lost my dad when I was 13 and lost my grandfather a couple of months later. My Mom loved my woodworking and proudly displayed many of my works. She supported my shop and was my biggest fan She will be sorely missed.

I am sorry for your loss but , in this case, you and I can for sure that she now is in a much better place, seating at the feet of her Lord.
I cannot wait to be there with her and all the other saints.

Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

I am so sorry for your loss. It isn’t hard to see why your mom “loved ” your work—you are a fine artisan and craftsman. As a way to remain connected, perhaps you could place an item you made in her casket?

So sorry for your loss . I lost my father to lung cancer when he died at age sixty one. I also lost my brother in law to stomach cancer when he was diagnosed at aged thirty he died when he was thirty three both really so young. But I also believe we go home when we cross over this life is just like being at School not our true home.Kindest regards Alistair

Lance, sorry for your loss. I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer a number of years ago, he never had a chance to see my woodworking. One of my biggest regrets.
Maybe making something in her honor may help you cope. Hang in there buddy.

My heart goes out to you… I know how it is… It’s tough… Really tough…

You just have to suck it up and keep on a truckin…

You have my deepest condolences…

Take care & keep your mind busy on other things like woodworking, etc.
... I know, it’s easy to say… but, that’s all I could figure out what to do when I lost family…

Sorry about your loss I know this is not an easy time as I lost both my parents within in one year of each other.
My prayers go out to you and your family!
