She is in one of the most lovely of flower gardens now looking down and keeping watch over you and your flower garden. You're in my thoughts during this tough time.

Dear Sharon, It doesn't matter how "expected" a love ones' death is, it is still a very sad time. A mother's love is unconditional and the memory of that love will bring you solace in the days to come. I hope your Dad will gain strength and receive comfort in knowing your mother is now enjoying the beauty of God's Rose garden. I have my arms around you, dear friend. Dannie

Sharon, I'm catching up this thread after an absence and found your beautiful tribute to your mother. I'm facing the loss of my mom, here in my care with Hospice assistance, and thank you for your guidance and grace. ~G

Hospice is truly amazing. My mom passed in 2001 at age 59 and without hospice care I don't know what we would have done.

I would like to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

These past two weeks have been the hardest I have ever had to face. It is amazing where the resolve comes from to get you through. The hardest thing was keeping all the emotions at bay simply just to get through one day at a time - to be there for my Dad to get all the arrangements made, and to think of the things that I know my Mum would have wanted if she were here.

Not only having to face such a horrible loss - to which I am really not sure I can face this inevitable pain that has yet to sink in.

We had such a difficult logistical time with both the Canada and Independence Day celebrations dab in the middle. To top it off our minister was away at his mothers 100th birthday. But one consolation it gave my Father the time he needed to be strong for all those coming in for the Memorial Service and not having to face them so raw.

We had a small blessing on Monday prior to the cremation. Then on Saturday we had a small gathering at the Niche Wall. My Mum is of Scottish decent and loved the bagpipe - her father used to play on the moors of Clee Hill. I still remember him to this day as a young girl before I emigrated to Canada. So we had a Piper to gather the family and close friends to her resting place and to send her on her way he played Amazing Grace - Mum's favorite.

We then had the Memorial Service where several of Mum's close friends paid tribute to celebrate her life. Peter braved his emotions and gave a beautiful tribute to his Mom. It brought tears to us all.

I had composed a piano solo piece for my Mum who would be the only one I would play in front of in my years. Composed shortly after I had written the poem - it is just how I deal with my sorrow - Entitled "Mum's Eternal Stroll". I then put the music to a pictorial tribute of my Mum's life along with all the peaceful wonders of nature that she loved so much. Gosh she loved to sit with me and watch all the nature photos I had taken. Digital photography is a blessing when you think about it. It was such a long time since she had walked outside - I would take her on so many walks with my photographs.

She loved the little things in life like the little chipmunks stuffing their face with the seed that Dad would put out for the birds. She loved to watch the birds take their early morning bath in her cement bird pond. And the squirrels that invaded the bird feeders even though Dad put out, upon Mum's instance squirrel food on the expensive squirrel feeder. She loved wild flowers and love to get vases filled from my garden. I made a huge bouquet for her Blessing that rested on her coffin - has anyone ever smelled the beautiful fragrance of a Milkweed in flower - it is just like a Hoya. I was devastated that I could not find a nice ribbon anywhere!!! and had to tie it with a brown shoe lace. But thought of a conversation before her surgery - Mum was coming up with new nick names and said "instead of shoeless Joe I will be shoe lace less Patty" She had popped the word Lace in there by mistake and we had a big laugh together.

My Mum was the strongest woman I had ever known. She was my best friend and gave the best cuddles a daughter could possibly have. Such an advocate in so many trials and tribulations of growing up and living life to its fullest. She was a straight shooter, gave her love endlessly to all those who had the privilege of knowing her. She was truly the pillar of our family.
Everything will be alright in the end. If it is not alright now, then it is not the end.

I am new to this site. Have just started following this thread. Being new, I would like to send my deepest simpathy to you Sharon. Losing a Mother is a sombering experience, one that only when you have lost yours you truly understand. My mom has been gone for several years now, but a day doesn't pass that I don't think of her and miss her. My very best to you. Susan

Hello to all
As noted above I am new to this site, but am very anxious to start sitting around the campfire and enjoying: good company and friendship, desserts, and some wine. And maybe some more wine. Looking forward to learning more about all you silver ladies.
PS, I am big into (whatelse) A/S, sewing, crafts, jewerly, gardening, watching the birds and animals, plus lots more. Susan

For Sharon

Sharon... Your MOM was truly a remarkable woman. Especially by the tribute paid to her by Peter and her friends and fellow workers. Your tribute to her was beautiful. She will always be with you and you truly are your Mother's daughter. And you know that I mean that in a very good and wonderful way. ... Annie
