My Beautiful Mom Elaine left this earth today


Recommended Posts

I am so very, very sorry. I'm still in shock, too. I saw in your sig line your wrote the world to Sarah McLaughlan's "Angel." I had this song sung at my dad's wake when he died of LC in 1999. When my mom died of it 11 weeks ago, I had Celine Dion's "Miracle" sung. My mom always said I was her greatest accomplishment in life, and once I had my kids I realized what she meant, and this song said it perfectly:


You're my life's one miracle

Everything I've done that's good

And you break my heart with tenderness

And I confess it's true

I never knew a love like this 'til you

You're the reason I was born

Now I finally know for sure

And I'm overwhelmed with happiness

So blessed to hold you close

The one that I love most

Though the future has so much for you in store

Who could ever love you more

The nearest thing to heaven

You're my angel from above

Only God creates such perfect love

When you smile AT me I cry

And to save your life I'd die

With a romance that is pure heart

You are my dearest part

Whatever it requires

I live for your desires

Forget my own, your needs will come before

Who could ever love you more

There is nothing you could ever do

To make me stop loving you

And every breath I take

Is always for your sake

You sleep inside my dreams

And know for sure

Who could ever love you more

I would recommend this CD highly. I gave it to my mom as a Mother's Day gift. But maybe not now; I guarantee it will make the tears flow.

Again, I am very sorry for your loss.

Mother's Day is going to be so hard...

My deepest sympathy to you and your family on your Mom's passing. My own pain is still new and we have setbacks and meltdowns regularly. Let yourself grieve and let yourself smile and be joyful at the memories. It's a hard road to recover from such a loss but at least her pain and suffering are over. I have to keep reminding myself of that... no more pain.
