November 15, 1989…

Sixteen years have flown by already…sixteen years since I lost my mother. It seems almost impossible to believe that much time has elapsed, and yet I remember that period as if it were just sixteen days ago.

They say that things like this get easier with time. Somethings “they” are wrong about. You never get over losing your mother…no matter how much time has passed.

I miss you, Mom…


Sixteen years today? Aw, my thoughts are with you, Brooke. As you know, mine's been gone for over forty...and, guess what? I feel the exact same way...I remember it like it happened yesterday. But it's okay, because forgetting would be worse.

Hi Brooke,

Noticed you on Randy's blog. Nice to see you're still out there somewhere. Sorry about your mom. My dad's been gone seven years. Seems like yesterday. It doesn't ever get better, just get's survivable.

(((hugs))) Brooke. I'm sorry I missed this - it's been a few days since I checked blogs. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your Mom. It's hard, and I'm sure it doesn't seem like 16 years have gone by. It's been 19 years since Dad passed, and almost 2 since Mom passed. There is never a time I don't miss them, but I figure that's the way it should be. I know they're in a good place though, and for me that is a comfort. I know your Mom's in a good place too. Take care, Brooke! More (((hugs)))

I lost my grandfather 5 years ago in October. He was my best friend. I lived with him from the time I was 10 until I got married at 18. Some days at my break I still pick up the phone to call him and then I remember. No... it doesn't get easier.
