I was cleaning out some files on my computer and found this. It was sent to me when my sister died in October 2012. It brought some comfort to me and I thought I'd share it here as many members on the forum have lost loved ones too.

You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she has left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she's gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,
or you can do what she'd want....

Smile, Open Your Eyes, Live and Go on.

I just realized Mother's Day is Sunday, always a difficult time for anyone who has lost a mother. :( I hope RDA can get through this tough period. Once again, I express my deepest condolences.

Yes, Mother's day is so hard when one has lost their mom. I pray for God's comfort for RDA and Wylie and his whole family especially on this day. May their sweet memories of her help them through this time.

It's almost the exact date of when my biological mother died (April 21). I'm adopted and had "two" mothers. Everyone thinks that's so wonderful because I get to go through it twice. It wasn't.
I have no idea how anyone else feels about the passing of their mother. I didn't have a good relationship with either of mine but I was more upset when the adoptive one passed away bc for one thing she was too young; she was younger than he is now when she died of Lymphoma. So far nobody in my family has lived beyond the age of 67.
Saying I'm sorry for someone's loss always feels inadequate. I am, but it feels insufficient.
I'm also sorry for his daughter, who lost her grandmother. I follow his daughter on Twitter. And I think grandmas are the best; well mine was. I even wrote a poem about how special it is to have grandma.
