My Mom Passed Away

My Mom passed away at 7:07 PM on Friday. She lost her battle with lung cancer and her family was here with her when she went home to be with God.

She will be missed more then words can say and right now it seems that I am numb inside as I lost not only my Mother but also my best friend...

It will take me some time to get over this but I am going to start up the giveaways as that is what she would have wanted me to do. And I think that it will also help me to keep my mind occupied. 


You can only have one mother
Patient kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.

When other friends forsake you,
To mother you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.

As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.

Sweet Jesus, take this message,
To our dear mother up above;
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love.

  1. I'm so sorry Deb. My grandpa, who was 62, passed away of a massive heartattack about 3 weeks ago now. I lived with him my whole life, and he was like my dad. I'm dealing with the same grief you are right now, and your right, keeping your mind busy is just about the best thing we can do right now. I'm sorry hun, I'm here for you.

  10. So sorry :(
    If keeping up with your blog helps you start to get back to "normal" and/or keep your mind off of things, then by all mean sdo it...but if it's a struggle or a burden then just wait until you feel up to it. Your readers and fans will be here when you feel good enough to come back. Best wishes!
