    I am so sorry for your loss. At these times it is hard to forget the last few painful years when you saw your mother struggle with Alzheimer’s. BUT that was such a small part of her life. She was a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a friend ……. Most importantly for us scrappers she was the mother of a beautiful soul that reminds us everyday the importance of documenting our lives.  So as you grieve these big loss, remember the good, remember the gift that she was. You and your family are in my prayers. Much love and peace.

    Lain, I’m so sorry for your loss. When my dad passed away last year, I turned to this quote often as it held so much truth for me.
    “When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
    ― Kahlil Gibran

  • Saire

    Lain-my thoughts and prayers are with you. I thought I’d share one of Maya Angelou’s poems that meant a lot to me when my Dad died:

    When Great Trees Fall by Maya AngelouWhen great trees fall, rocks on distant hills shudder, lions hunker down in tall grasses, and even elephants lumber after safety. When great trees fall in forests, small things recoil into silence, their senses eroded beyond fear. When great souls die, the air around us becomes light, rare, sterile. We breathe, briefly. Our eyes, briefly, see with a hurtful clarity. Our memory, suddenly sharpened, examines, gnaws on kind words unsaid, promised walks never taken. Great souls die and our reality, bound to them, takes leave of us. Our souls, dependent upon their nurture, now shrink, wizened. Our minds, formed and informed by their radiance, fall away.We are not so much maddened as reduced to the unutterable ignorance of dark, cold caves.And when great souls die, after a period peace blooms,slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill with a kind of soothing electric vibration. Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us. They existed. They existed. We can be. Be and be better. For they existed.

    Dear Lain,

    So sorry to hear the loss of your mom. This is a very sad and sensitive moment. I never know what to say when something like this happens. I wish I had the gift of saying the right things.   My dad passed away three months ago and it was totally unexpected so we didn’t have time to say goodbye. I still think about him every day and it is still hard at times. I do want to offer you my sincere condolences and all the strenght in the world to get through this. If you have good friends and family around  you, it will help.

    The year before my dad passed away, I made him a scrapbook for a Christmas gift. A scrapbook with pictures of him when he was a child, his family than his marriage, children, his passion for golf and alpin ski, you know, his life.  He loved it. Now I have the scrapbook back and I understand how much important it is to create these scrapbooks. It is a great way to honor someone or just to document his or her life. I am scrapbooking more than ever.

    You have my sympathy.

    Sylvie
