Default The first Thanksgiving without my Mom

My Mom passed away on Oct 31 thus year .This is the first Holiday without her I have to admit I'm a pretty strong person but it has been very rough. She would want us to be happy but 51 yrs with a Mom doesn't prepare you for without one . She is in a better place the dementia in the end was rough people that have went through it with parents understand. I'm thankful I still have my Dad and a wonderful wife and 2 great Kids . Sorry for the rambling post its just been a weird day. Hug family and tell them how you feel.

Anthony

No rambling at all sir. I dread even thinking about that level of loss.

I know how you feel sir. It is tough but with time it gets a little easier to accept. But that feeling doesn't ever go away completely. Which is a good thing, it shouldn't. The day you forget about loved ones who have passed on is the day they truly die.

The voices you no longer hear can sometimes be the loudest. Going through something similar in our family. I’m thankful and blessed with friends and family, but gosh, I sure miss the ones no longer with us. Prayers for you and your family, now and through the coming season.

I understand bud. Lost my dad several years ago and that was tough the first few holidays without him. It’s been 23 years and we still talk about him at the dinner table every holiday. Can’t wait to see him again one day. Sorry for your loss. It does get better as the years go by.

Truly understand, I lost my brother on Oct 19 of this year. Even though we didn’t always spend the holidays together, we text or called one another. Taking it one day at a time but the tears still fall when I think of him.

My most sincere condolences for your loss,going through this same situation. We lost Dad just before last Christmas. Christmas was terribly rough and yesterday as well. Time has a way of easing your hurt but it still seems to come in waves. Will pray for you and yours.

Prayers up for you and your family. I can’t say it gets better, at least not in my heart. My mother passed in 1992. I was 21 at the time, now at 51 I still miss her greatly. Holidays are rough.

Prayers up for you and the family. Lost my Dad 12-10-19 and I have those days where it's pretty tough to do anything other than to think of him. Focusing on the good times and memories that were made together helps some. Stay strong and keep your heart right until your reunited on those streets of gold.

That was my birthday. Sorry for your loss and all the rest who've lost loved ones. My dad's been gone 17 years. Still miss him like it was yesterday.

Mom passed away July 18, 2021. TODAY would have been she & Dadsí 68th Anniversary. They both have dementia and Dad is in a Nursing Home. Just left visiting with him and not sure he even knew me.

Lossing parents is a tough road. My Dad has been gone 6-years. The first just seemed so "off". Mom tried to keep up appearances but it was hurting her.

Sorry for your loss. You're in good company.
