    and as you can imagine, I'm having a real hard time.

    I finally moved back to Texas after 25 years away, looking forward to quality time with my family... and then my mother gets sick and passes away a few days after her 80th birthday. She was a brave soldier to the end. I'm not made of such strong stuff.

    Sorry to hear that Paul. Prayers from Thailand. I went thru that in 2014..not easy but times do get better. Just give yourself time to grieve but remember the good stuff and don't dwell too much on the bad

    Sorry for your loss. Lost my father a few years back, it was rough for awhile. I know losing my mother will be really hard on me and the family.

    I'm very sorry for your loss.
    Losing a parent is very hard, and it can change a person.
    Time does heal, although it seems to take forever.
    Spend as much time with the family as possible, but don't forget to give yourself some alone time to grieve.

    I am very sorry to hear this, Paul. I'll be keeping you and your family in my prayers. I lost my dad three years ago and still miss him.

    Loosing you Mom or Dad is one of the saddest things in life. I am sorry for your loss, Paul. I am sure you will keep her memory alive.

    Sorry to hear Paul, especially because obviously you were close to your mom. I went through this in my early 20s with mine and all I can say while it never it gets better, with the passage of time, it does get less worse....

    Sorry for your loss. There aren't too many people who know our whole life story and it is hard to lose them.
