My Journey

I've put off something very important to me, something I need to do, but didn't feel ready to... until now!

I need to go to the cemetery & visit my mom's grave. I haven't been there since after her funeral. My friend said he would go with me, which is good, cause I may need some strong arms to hold me. I'll have to remember to take plenty of tissues, just in case I break down!

I love you Mom & miss you so very much!

I know what you are going through. My parents died 10 and 11 years ago and everytime I go there I feel an empty feeling inside. It's very hard but I believe there in a better place and that we will see them again. My heart goes out to you. And if you ever need a friend to go with you I will go with you. i whould love to be your friend. Big hug to you

That is a tough journey! Did it two years ago with my Father. It went very fast,less than a week, and I had to travel to Sweden to see him. It turned out to be the best time I ever had with my Father. We talked, he know what was coming. He said,'m fine, had a good life, it's my turn! Every time I think of him, I smile. Miss his voice most of all.
Think of the good moments, let it make you smile, and see the positive side of your Mother going to the other side.
Be strong and safe!

I can't imagine how you feel, but i think you are doing the right thing, sometimes it takes awhile to get your emotions in order, and taking someone with you is probably a good idea, take care babe!!!!

My heart goes out to you. I lost both of my parents in an accident a few years back and know the terrible loss that you must feel. Death is part of life but it hurts so very much when it comes to someone close to us. Your tears are nothing to be ashamed of as they moisten the ground to nourish it and send a message to your beloved mother that you still care and always will. I wish I could be there to help you through this.

I have a friend that I have taken to the cemetary where her parrents are burried. It seems no one else will take her there. I dont know why. but I'm always glad to help where I can.
Your writing makes me wonder how I'll react when that day comes for my parrents.

Going to the cemetary is a very difficult thing, why I'm not sure I just know thinking about going upsets me. The first time I went back I couldn't hold back the tears, the second time was alittle easier though.

I know how you feel about the journey Candy. My Father is buried in South Carolina. I have visited only once since his death in 1987. My Step Mother was cremated. My maternal Mother is still alive and living in a nursing home. I should visit her after graduation. I visit my Granddaughter's grave every time I get the chance to drive to Illinois.

Peace and Love,
