“The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again, but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.” -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and John Kessler

This is a true story. Dad called me on the phone (I wrote down our conversation as soon as I hung up, December 28, 2008) just 4 weeks after mom died.

“I had a bad day today Helena. I thought about her (mom) all day, probably because I was home alone putting the Christmas stuff away, sorting through the photos to get them ready for the new albums.”

“Awe dad, I’m sorry, I had two really bad days, but I’m better today.”

“I missed her all day. You know what I did?”

“No, what did you do?”

“I went under her email account and typed an email to my email address that said, “I miss you,” and then I emailed it to myself, like it was coming from mom.”

At this point I could barely speak and had tears falling from my eyes.

“So then I went under my email account and saw an email from mom. I returned “her” email that said, “I miss you too.”

Do you have any similar memories?  I would love to hear them.

By the way, I couldn’t type this without tears.

If you liked this little article, I would be grateful if you shared it with your friends.

  1. This event occurred rigt after the time Mario return to the Mushroom Kingdom so it had to take place after bbggeceegaee

  2. Wonderful site you have here but I was wondering if you knew
    of any community forums that cover the same topics talked
    about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of group where I
    can get opinions from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    Cheers!

  3. of course like your web-site but you have to check the
    spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them
    are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to tell the
    reality however I will certainly come back again.

  4. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such great info being shared freely out there.

  5. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.. ggadkfgakgae
