    A river runs thru it........
    It’s been a long 4 1/2 months, but today ended my Mother’s suffering. She was 96 years young, and fell and broke her back on Feb 12th. Had emergency surgery on her spine, and we all thought all was going fine. She healed up well and was in rehab, but I figure the shock of everything just set in and took its toll. She had a good run, I hope I do as well as she did.....Any prayers appreciated, thanks........

    It is so hard to lose Mom, no matter what the circumstances. I'm 4 years out and still feel some loss daily. Treasure your memories

    Sorry to hear. Never easy to lose someone you love. Sounds like she had a solid run though at 96!

    So sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. Sure, anyone would be thrilled to have such a nice long run, but I think it's tough to lose someone you love no matter what are the circumstances. Takes some time but I'm sure that you will reach the point where the joy of what you had far outweighs the sorrow of what you lost. Wishing you and yours some comfort over the next few days and prayers inbound.

    BTSDOG sorry to hear of your loss, that's a tough one to take, to get "shocked" like that when you think someone is on the mend. [sad] May she rest in peace.

    No matter how long they're around, it's never long enough. Mine is 91 and I know time is short. They are part of the Greatest Generation. Sorry for your loss.
