Lynne, I am so sorry to learn of the death of your Mom, now my prayers are focused on you and your family. May God give you comfort and may you know that God has her safely with Him. There will be no more pain or discomfort.
I know the death of a parent leaves such a void.
Take care of yourself.

It is good that she is not suffering and is at peace. But the loss of a mother is a big loss and I pray for you and your family at this time.

My thoughts are with you. Maybe, next year at Cape May, you will be greeted by a most beautiful bird, unlike any you have seen before.

Oh, I'm so sorry! I lost my mom in 2005 and sometimes still feel like a 48 year old orphan.

May your friends and family and the blogging community help strengthen you during this difficult time.

Lynne - I wish to duplicate exactly what Betty (Ruthie J's mom) said. You obviously made the right decision to stay in town. It sounds like many of us bloggers have experienced the loss of our moms and we know what you are going through. May you feel the warmth of our love and loving thoughts for you and your family.

I really do not know what to say Lynne. No words can take away the pain and loss from you. I just hope time heals quickly for you. I really enjoy meeting you on the LL Smith and hopefully next time we meet you have your smile back.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. We are never ready to lose our parents.

My thoughts will be with you.

Oh Lynne, please accept my sincerest condolences. I have no words that can possibly make you feel better. I'm happy you and your brothers were able to be with her at the end. It's going to be hard, but I hope that knowing she's reunited with your dad gives you some comfort.

A big HUG to you.

Deb said...

Lynne, we were so sorry to hear of your loss. This morning, we were watching the ocean: rhythmic, relentless and beautiful, and I thought of you and your mom and how she'll go on inside you. Take care, my friend.You are still loved.

God Bless her...she was blessed to be surrounded by you and a wonderful family, Lynne.

There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness,
but of power.
They speak more eloquently
than 10,000 tongues.
They are the messengers
of overwhelming grief,
of deep contrition,
and of unspeakable love.


- Washington Irving

You are in our thoughts.

Sandy said...

Oh Lynne--I just read your update, commented and then saw the At Peace entry.
First, so sorry for you & your family. How well I know the feelings & the emotions you are going through.
But you made the right choice--you stayed at her side, a time that can never be replaced.
Thinking of you in the days, weeks and months ahead.

Trixie said...

Dear Lynne,

May you know that your mother now abides in God's peace, and may that peace come to you and your family.

Losing a parent is so hard and leaves such a hole. I know. And I am so sorry you are experiencing that loss now. Sigh...

Cathy said...

Dear Lynne,

My heart breaks for you and your family. May the love of your husband and children and your brothers - help carry through the next days, weeks and months.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours as you grieve the loss of your brave, little mother.

The happy conversation you had with your mom is a blessing. It is the bright note in this time of pain.

I know you brought enormous happiness into your mother's life. I hope that sustains you, now.

Love,
Cathy

Julie Zickefoose said...

Your mom got to see and enjoy your kids--that is a great, great blessing. My dad died at 81 still wondering if I'd ever cave in and have any...a great regret of mine. Know that you made her so happy. It's OK to fold in on yourself for a good long time. We'll be here when you're ready to come back.
Love,
JZ

As I ponder what to offer to you, I glance over to the picture of my mom who passed away in 1995. I still long for her, but she's never far.
