I'm so sorry. I've been away in Chicago and just got your message today. Our mothers influence stays with us for the rest of our life, and she will never be replaced. It's ok to greive; be gentle with yourself. You were a strong architect in your mother fight against breast cancer. Your presence here on this site has given us all hope and inspiration. Appreciate those qualities that your Mother gave you and left us all. Please continue to remain a resource here for us all.
Here's a poem for you in honor of your Mother:
Loss of A Mother Poem (From Mother to Daughter)
Now that I am gone,
remember me with smiles and laughter.
And if you need to cry,
cry with your brother or sister
who walks in grief beside you.
And when you need me,
put your arms around anyone
and give to them what you need to give to me.
There are so many who need so much.
I want to leave you something --
something much better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I've known
or helped in some special way.
Let me live in your heart
as well as in your mind.
You can love me most
by letting your love reach out to our loved ones,
by embracing them and living in their love.
Love does not die, people do.
So, when all that's left of me is love,
give me away as best you can.
