Last year back in April I lost my beautiful mum who was only 61yrs old to pancreatic cancer, I find everyday so hard without her in my life and it’s now been just over a year since mum left this world to become an angel and I still cry everyday and feel so lost without her, my mum was the world to me in every way we were so close and the pain I feel every day without her seems to be getting worst, I have 4 beautiful children and I know in my heart my mum would want me to move on with the children but I feel so alone without her, just before my mum passed away she told me that I was the perfect daughter a mother could had asked for and that she loved me very much and a few hours later she had passed away and that’s why I feel so alone I loved her so much.

  • It can take a long time to recover and for some the grieving process seem to take forever. The last 3 -4 years of my Mum’s life she really didn’t want to be here any more. She developed Alzheimers but still remembered us and could still talk, she lost interest in her favourite hobby the last 3 months or so (she knitted teddies for charities), then developed kidney failure and chest congestion. She was 90 when she died. her sister passed away with the same medical problems. That was 6 years ago and I still shed tears occasionally.


  • Thank you for sharing your story, so very sorry for your loss and pain… I can only imagine how tough it if for you, but I hope in time it will somewhat ease, I’m glad she let you know that you were the perfect daughter. x


  • I’m very sorry for your loss. It is so hard to move forward, but if you remember what your mum told you, use that as your inspiration. She thought you were doing a great job. let her be close to you as you get on with your life. I lost my nanna who I was close to, and as I do things she taught me to do, I think of her. It keeps her close and I feel that she is not so far away. Enjoy your children, I’m sure that is what your mum would want you to do. All the best.

    • Such beautiful sentiments. Thinking of our departed loves, always keeps them close.
