Gone 42 years!!















My mom passed away in 1968 ~ 42 years ago!!

She died way too soon and way too young!! As long as it's been I still think about her almost daily!

Wow...sorry...Lost my mom almost 6 years ago, and I thought 61 was too young. Then lost my spouse...he was 38....you see...no age is a good age....Someone always misses the person that has passed....
Hugs to you.

Kathy said...

That is terrible. So very young. It just breaks my heart. I can't imagine what that must have been like for you and the rest of your family. I'm thinking about you.

Erin said...

I lost my only sibling (sister) when she was 16. I was 19. I think about her often to this day.

Jeanie said...

I really know what you are talking about. My mom died in 1965....she was way too young and I was way too young to have her die. It is a loss we never get over.

Coffeypot said...

She was way to young to leav this world. No wonder you miss her so much.

It never fails to awe me that regardless of our relationships with our mothers and the time in between our loss, we never stop missing her when she's gone.

Feeling your loss.

So sorry she passed at a young age. Thank you for sharing her with us.

My mother died in 1993, and I think of her as being with me as I get older. She has never stopped being my mom, and I am almost as old as she was when she died. I don't miss her exactly, because I feel her presence more every day.

Brian Miller said...

i am sorry you lost your mom so young...my wife last hers 3 years back now...she still thinks of her often as well...

Matty said...

I'm sorry. I'm sure that you have many good memories to hold onto.

Ann said...

So sorry you lost your mom at such a young age. I know how hard it was losing my dad. It's hard to believe how many years it's been already. Still think about him all the time though

AmyLK said...

HUGS! From one daughter who has lost her mom too soo to another. My mom has been gone 11 yrs and was too young as well.

Anita said...

People that have gone through what you've experienced, have always told me to treasure my parents. (My father passed in 1999.)

I am sorry that you don't physically have your mom. You're a special daughter to honor her via your blog and to talk and write about her often.

Thank you.
Blessings.

Many, many hugs Gayle.

That is very sad. I am so sorry. I love the pictures.

Buffee said...

Wow, you look so much like you mom! Beautiful pictures.

I fear my mother's death. I will be lost without her. I've never experienced that kind of loss.

Except for the loss of the children I thought I would have. (That's one of those questions I will always ask why me)?

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Hugs to you on a day that still brings deep hurt.

Vicki Lane said...

Always interesting to think of the might have beens -- that was certainly an untimely departurel

Chris H said...

Why do you wonder why? Was she unwell? Or did she pass in another way.... like an accident?
Shit happens mate.
Both my brothers died young in car accidents, and my Dad drowned in 2000.... there is no answer to 'Why?' really.

The Ninja said...

I am so sorry you have had to live this long without her, but that was a lovely tribute.

Together We Save said...

Just stopping by to say... I am always glad to hear when you get your freebies I mention on my blog. Thanks so much for leting me know. Have a wonderful weekend.

Java said...

Oh Gayle how sad! I'm sorry you lost your Mom...and she was so young! Can I ask how?

Have a great weekend!

Donna B said...

Gayle, I am so sorry. I cannot imagine. My husband's Mom has been gone 6 years, and his Dad, who shared the same birthday as your Dad, has been gone 10 years.

Danica said...

Sending hugs. I'm sorry.

May her memory live on with you-gayle thanks for stopping by and please do not apologize that is the existence of my blog-for you to relate, share, comment, read, and hopefully find help in the answers you are looking for. For a minute I almost thought you were my mom-because she always says this to me. One thing is you cannot protect her from all of life follies, what you can do is suggest they talk about it sooner then later so that no one has to compromise or end up unhappy. I hope you found what you were looking for at my blog, and so glad to have you following me-I will surely return the favor-thanks again. Best of luck to your daughter, chin up-one foot in front of the other...

Marla said...

That is way too soon.

My mom died at 81 and I still wasn't ready. I guess there just isn't a good time to say goodbye to our moms.
