Even after going to the wake and seeing her, it just in some ways does not seem possible that she can really be gone. There are a lot of unanswered thoughts and Questions going thru my mind right now, and I am not sure how to deal with them. Some of them I will probably discuss on here from time to time in the near future, but right now I am trying to sort thru some of the things going thru my mind. Sometimes I ask myself where do I need to start in going thru some of these thoughts so that the unanswered questions will not be there? Actually, we are patiently waiting for the Official reason of death from the dr. to know if it was her heart or what. She was on a pacemaker, and had been on one for about 20 yrs. or so, so you never really know. Just keep our family uplifted in Prayer to get thru this. There is my 2 sisters and I here. My brothers did not make it. One lives in Scotland and is just about to become a Dad, and the other one lives in IL, and could not find the $$ to come out here. But my sister who lives here in Montana has been trying to keep us busy to where we are not thinking about Mom so much. There will be more updates and questions, so if you are interested, please stay tuned. ~~TINA~~

Aww, Tina, I am so sorry to hear about your mom passing on. I have really done much on here for a few weeks so until I saw this discussion, I just didn't know. I lost my mother 21 years ago and my father 31 years ago. I will be praying for you. I know how it hurts and the questions that go through a person's mind. I will be thinking of you.

Instead of previewing this, I had lready posted this when I realized that I had put that I have really done much on here when what I had intended to put was that I have not done done much here.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom. I know how trying this time is for you and your family. I lost my father to colon cancer just a few months back. Although we have known for some time that he will be leaving us, I still questioned God's will. I cried and tried to bargain with God. But God makes no mistake. We may not understand his will but in time we will see.

I understand how painful is to go through with what you are in now... my condolences to the whole family. I hope that you would be able to withstand whatever and I hope that you could make the adjustment soon. Keep on praying and reading the Holy Bible. My sympathies with you... may God bless you.

Maybe instead of trying to keep busy so you don't think about your mom you all should sit down and talk about her and remember all the happy times as well as the sad time. It might get some of those questions answered. I be keeping you and your family in prayer.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Everyone has to leave this mother earth. It is really unbearable, if you lose someone you love dearly. Mother is such a great creation by God, I do not think there is any alternative to mother in this world. Yesterday while answering one of your topics, I wrote that I like the song MOTHER OF MINE. It is a song sung by a daughter in farewell to mother. Have courage to face the realities of life and take care.

My heart and prayers are with you and your family. These times of crisis often make us wonder and question the will of God, but we must keep our faith. Stick together with your brothers and sisters they are all feeling the same way. If prayers open the gates of heaven, I am sure your Mom is happily speaking with God. Take care of yourself!

My condolences to you and your family Tina. I can't imagine losing my mother or father, but at the loss of my grandfather, I was devastated. So, I know it will take time and the not knowing makes the wait much longer doesn't it. I hope you find the answers you need soon. Take care and my prayers are with you in your time of loss.

My heartfelt condolence to you KrauseHome and to your siblings. I know how sad it is to lost someone you loved but we must face this and accept the reality. Maybe we could just treasure the sweet memories and legacies that your mother had left behind. Who knows maybe she will be much better and feeling well in where she is right now (no more pain from her sickness).
