I'll Be Back, Again...

It's pretty unbelievable to me that we are going through this again just 14 weeks after my daddy passed away, but we are.  My mom passed away early Saturday morning.  She was diagnosed with the same lung cancer that my dad had the week before Thanksgiving and had been doing pretty well.     
 
We celebrated her birthday on December 2nd, last Sunday we went out for breakfast and to Costco...  then Thursday she went to bed an never got out.  Too quick. Too much. Too shocking. 


 
I'll be back to blogging soon, no worries, I have lots of fun things to share with you!

  58. My heart goes out to you and your family. I don't know if this helps, but someone was interviewing Oprah and she said that when someone you love so deeply passes on, their spirit becomes part of you making you stronger and fills you with all the love they gained while here on Earth. Somehow, that thought made me feel more at peace with the loss of my loved ones.

  65. My heart is so with you, I lost both my parents almost the same way in 2013 and it still is so hard...At least they are together and no longer hurting or sick.

I am not yet ready to scrap the photos or memories yet but I will sometime and it will be wonderful and comforting. Hugs from Texas.

  74. God bless you and your family, and the loss of your mom and dad. Both my mom and dad died quick and unexpectedly, although they were in poor health, and I was always thankful that they did not suffer a long, slow death. Be grateful for that much. But, you will miss them just so much. My heart goes out to you.

  103. I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I lost my dad in May, almost the same story as your mom - went out for Mother's Day on Sunday, went out to dinner for his birthday on Monday and the Tuesday morning he was rushed to the hospital and passed away on Thursday. I'm still devastated - I can't imagine how you feel having lost both parents within months. I'm truly sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  104. So sorry for your loss Becki. God must be needing a lot of angels. Lot of loss this year for many people I care about. We lost my uncle first, then his wife 3 months later and my husband's father as well. Two neighbors have lost their parents in short periods of time as well. Loss is so hard and I cannot imagine what you must be going through. But, you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time for you and your handsome sons. God Bless!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Becky, I am in tears reading your post. I cannot imagine how devastated you and your family and siblings are right now. Way too much pain all too soon. My heart aches for you. The one thing I can think of is that they are reunited and now you have a team of angels looking over you! Sending prayers for peace and understanding as you deal with this heavy loss. Much love my friend. Hugs from AZ

  111. Dearest Becky, I can't imagine loosing both parents so close together. My prayers are with you and your family. Take what ever time you need to heal. Stamping is fun but is way down the priority list when it comes to family and loosing someone you love deeply. Take good care

I lost my soul mate to lung cancer in 2000, and we lost my in-law's from my second (current) marriage within 3 months of one another (not cancer, but not easy). Take time to take care of you---let the crafting come as it may--it can be a great balm when nothing else can let your mind relax...Blessings, Sharon

  117. I'm so sorry about your mom and dad. It sounds like your mom died of broken heart.

Just know they are together. Sorry for your loss.
