Another mother's funeral

My friends lost their mother last weekend: a Saturday morning, just like mine. Her funeral is today, but I don't think I can handle going. She was 55 years old! Mother of 7. Uterine cancer that got into her lymph system. My mom was 64, young enough, but at least she got to see all of her children married and have their own children. My dear Ruth and Aaron: my heart aches for you, my soul cries for you. Welcome to the crappiest club on earth.

I'm so sorry about your mom. I didn't know...
My dad died at age 47... losing a parent really sucks!

I feel your pain - still. Mom died in 1978, but was only 54. Dad was 46 when he left us (died). Thirty years - I've been without her as long as I had her - it still hurts.
