Hang on in there, you are now on Hug Therapy! It's horrible to lose a parent, especially if you had only one left and the other dying so short a time ago. I really feel for you. You are surrounded in hugs to help yourself to - though a lot will just arrive :-)

Accept the fact things are going to get harder before they get better but remember you have a lot of back-up behind you from the Cat. PM me if you think I can be of any help (not sure where you are - I'm in Yorkshire.

Lots of love and hugs

And in that one way you are. No one ever replaces a parent that was deeply loved.

My Mom died 43 years ago. She was only 43 at the time. I arrived back home from college very late in the evening and my Dad and I talked long into the night. He'd lost his own Mother many years before and one thing he said to me that night was the best and truest thing he ever told me was, "Not a day will go past that you won't think of her."   

At the time it seemed almost too painful to consider, but as time passed the cold pain of her loss was replaced by the warm flush of the memory of the person she was. Now at this long distance out I realize that the Ol' Man knew well of what he spoke. He died just a few years later not a day goes past without their memory in my day somewhere

I'm sorry for your loss and you have my best thoughts.

Spaw

Jeez Raptor, Im sorry. That feeling of being an orphan at any age is contradictory. Its empowering its tireing its reminising, its looking ahead, its a time of loss and a time of finding. some people are better and some are bitter.
For me the one thing that didn't pass away was a lifetime of remembered love.
Hoping you are well.

You bring so many interesting things to Mudcat, Raptor, and you have shared sorrow here also. Your mother must have been a very interesting woman to have brought up such a son. I hope you'll tell us about her when you're ready.

I agree with Pat, once the huge pain of loss passes you can look back at the person and see the good stuff with a new perspective. You are the keeper of those important things, and you can share them and remember and honor them. This doesn't mean the tough times go away, but you learn perspective. My parents died in 1997 and 1998. Sometimes I still have a moment of surprise that they're gone. And there are so many times when I miss them, always on Thanksgiving, and often on occasions when my kids do things that I know they'd enjoy hearing about.

Take care. And hold your friends and the rest of your family close.

There are no words you can read, I imagine, that will bring you comfort right now.

But maybe they will in the future.

And know that if you ever wish to tell a story of your Mom or Dad, there are open ears (and eyes) to receive it.

Yes, there's a deep sense of loss at being an orphan, no matter how old you are - especially when we lose both parents so close together.   Spaw and Stilly have said it so well, Raptor.

I hope we, your friends at Mudcat, can be of some comfort to you in your time of grieving and that you will continue to cherish your parents' love and spirit and connectedness though they are no longer with you in the flesh.

CapriUni, sowed the seed of a lovely idea there.
We often know each other by Mudname only. When the time is right a short story of your lost love one would bring us even closer.
My dad died over 5 years ago, yes I think of him every day. My dear Mother is approaching 90 so I may soon have to face the inevitable.
But they both will have left indelible memories on all who knew them.

Kind thoughts to you Raptor,

Andy

Dear Rappy,

From the moment your Mum closed her eyes...indeed even before, she'll have been surrounded by many souls who have loved her and who were there to welcome her with hands outstretched.

Neither of you are alone.

Your Mum ain't going to stop loving you, merely because she's passed on to the next phase, and you don't have to ever stop loving her either, nor yattering to her, and your Dad, whenever you feel the need.

I yatter to my Dad all the time...smile at how he'd have laughed about something I'm doing or not doing...

The Pain gets less and the Love gets more....eventually.

Until then, as someone's said already, we're all here to yatter to as well, so don't you DARE feel alone.

And that's an order! :0)

Lizzie x

You're not alone... and neither will you ever be. I am sorry for your loss and hope this short anonymous poem will help a little.


Their Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of them as gone away,
their journey has just begun.
Life holds so many facets,
this earth is only one.

Just think of them as resting
from the sorrows and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort,
where there are no days and years.

Think of how they must be wishing
that we could know, today,
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of them as living
in the hearts of those they touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and they were loved so much.


May she rest in true peace
