Feb 6, 1996 the day I lost my best friend, my mom. That pain in my heart never goes away, I miss our three phone calls a day, our laughs, our talks. Fifteen years seems long, and on one hand it has been a long time, and on the other seems like just last week we were doing something together. My mom, dad and brother are all together plus my puppy Willie who we also lost. A day never goes by that I don't think or miss my mom, dad, brother or Willie. That is just something I have to live with knowing grieving is a life time process.
I was so blessed to have loving wonderful parents, a good memory of my brother that was killed in a car accident taking his life way to soon. I have so many fun memories of my parents, and with that and their love, I respect and honor their memories.
I miss them dearly today and every day.

    I am glad that you have such wonderful memories to carry you through your pain. My dad has been gone for 29 years, but the sense of loss remains with me. Having great memories helps us continue on our own journeys.

    You're lucky to have such great parents and all those wonderful memories which you hold dear. Some people don't get to have all that...

    My thoughts are with you, especially today.

    I was watching an episode of Dateline last night about a girl who had been abducted and murdered, and her mom made a comment saying something like, closure never happens when we lose a loved one. I thought about how true that is, and then, I read your blog entry and your statement about grieving being a lifetime process. So true. Death of loved ones has always been something that I cannot mentally absorb, and I think it is because we love so deeply. I am thinking of you today and will keep you and your loved ones in my thoughts as we move past this day. Stay strong!
