6 months

Damn, it don't seem like it has been that long. Seems like yesterday. I still get the urge to make mom lunch and BS with her. Damn I miss her. On the flipside our family is closer than ever, just the way she would have wanted it.

Damn dude. Where does the time go?That was around the time when my Dad had his heart attack. It definately brings the family closer together...

Cheers brother!

When bad shit happens, I think there is no greater comfort than knowing ones' family is there for them, backing them up, always. You are a good egg, and I've no doubt that that comes from having a wonderful family.

Kerrcarto - I'm 79. I was 26 when my mother died and I still miss her. But Maeve is right. A mother is always with us in everything we do. It's a great testimony to her love that your family is closer than ever. All the best to all of you.

My mother passed away in 2002 so I can relate, brother. God bless.

Sure does no seem like it's been that long. I still have mine, she just turned 86, and totald her car on the way to her bday party. She got hurt, but would not stay in the hospital. Said she could heal better in her own home.

My Dad passed away the month after I graduated vet school. He was only 48. I thank God he saw me finish school because that was probably a bigger moment for him then it was for me. We were just starting to get close, as in a friendhsip, though as a father he was always close to me. Not a day goes by where I don't think about him or what he and I missed out on as I opened my own business, got married and had a child. It would probably be even worse had it been my mom. The only emotions I can convey is it does get easier with time.

I'm with you. March 5th will be 6 years for me. I'm glad you have a lot of good memories of her.

I know what you mean. It's especially bad on Sundays when I just want to pick up the phone and call her.

Crap, crap, crap, crappity crap.
