I knew this day was coming so I tried to man up and prepare myself for it, but it didn't help at all.
Mom left my life on Saturday and while it is a new beginning for her (she's married, at home in the city she was born in, her future is secure, more pros than cons, etc) losing her to someone I don't know and losing the responsibility of looking after her financially and otherwise hurts.
Nothing can numb the pain, nothing.
Hi Trevor, good to see you again.
I know the hurt this can cause..though my situation is different, as it involves 8 passings in my family over the past decade, I know firsthand the pain one leaving your life can create, from whatever means they left.
It's a familiar feeling to all of us, but yet one we can claim as our own because each one of us has to deal with it by ourselves to a certain degree.
I can't say much more, because words aren't enough, but my thoughts are with you.
