This happened too fast. I am in shock

Hi everyone, my mom passed today. Her heart stopped at home, with the paramedics again, then at the hospital. She's gone and I can't believe it. She just had her first chemo on the 29th and we thought that was why she wasn't feeling good.
I'm really lost right now.

I'm very sorry for your loss.


So sorry for your loss. The first stage of grief is denial. It is hard to accept the fact that something so devastatingly final has erupted into the middle of our lives. Our hearts remain in the past even though our minds know that there is no going back. This stage melts the certainty of our souls.

Know that we are here as you continue to mourn the loss. You have been a great comfort to others here as you have shared your journey with her.

Thank you.

Thank you all for the kind words and direction towards the grief forum. I will check that out after the service.

I had joined a football pool as something mom and I could do together that wasn't related to her illness and she even made her picks during her chemo treatment. My son is taking over the picks with me and it was the toughest thing to get through!!! The mornings and nights are the hardest. Planning her service and going through those motions are surreal.

Thanks for the ongoing support.

@Gigi75 My prayers are with you. Sudden death is the hardest, cancer or not. Let others comfort you at this time. I love the football pick idea you and your Mom had started. Know that she is safe and comforted in the arms of the Lord. She will never be forgotten all those beautiful memories are yours to keep. Bless you
