    I got an amazing flood of condolences the day my mom passed away. I think her spirit really passed on through me and the people who sent messages understood how important she was. I know many of you messaged me, and I didn't get back to you. But I wanted to let you know how greatful I am to those of you who responded. Alot of my nonsense posts have been in direct relation to losing her, she was a great mom and a great friend. I hope to finally start healing and I guess start making more sense ;) take care. - Michael

    I lost my father a couple of years ago. Losing a parent is what we will all face eventually, unless we die first, and we all dread the experience, but there's a liberation after the grief. It's one of those growth experiences that turns us into useful people on the planet. You're a lot younger than most people who bury their parents though. I hope you have a strong bond with your siblings to keep the family together, and to support you.

    I lost my mom when I was 17, my dad this past August, so I know what you are going through. It's never easy to lose anyone close to you, but the memories and love you shared with them is what can help you through life's difficult times, now and in the future.

    Just remember she would want you to be the strongest, most grounded, nicest guy you can be, and by seeking that and living that, you honor her memory.

    I cant imagine losing my mother and there is no I can ever be prepared for her to go. I dont think about it.

    All I know is when she dies I get quilts and guns. lol

    Just take your time grieving. My mom said that losing her mom at 50 was the hardest thing she ever has gone thru.

    So sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. I was your age when I lost mine as well. It's very hard cause most of your peers can't relate. Was her death unexpected?
