Missing My Funny Mom

Captain’s Log   5,839

Three years ago today I was picking out my mother’s coffin and making plans for her memorial service.   It seems like only yesterday.

Such a funny lady.  So sweet.  So innocent in many ways.  And so wise when wisdom was called upon.

I really miss her.

    Seeing this makes me think of my dad. It’ll be 7 months tomorrow since he passed & not a day goes by I don’t think about him. We have his service next month. I still have to take my car out of his name. It’s a rough process, healing the loss of a parent. I get thru by telling the kiddo about him, singing the goofy songs and using his isms.

    I can’t believe it’s been 3 years. How time slips away. I watched the video again . She was hilarious! A real comedian. No wonder you miss her so much. She taught you to see the humor in everything, didn’t she? What a sweetheart. Thanks for sharing. Love to you and Barb.

    Guess I shouldn’t have read this in the office – made me tear up too much. I can only imagine that after the loss of your mother you miss her for the rest of your life, at different times, of course. Sunday will be my mother’s 97th birthday. The essence of who my mother was is slowly fading, although she also has kept her sense of humor. I’m very grateful to still have her physically present and the occasional days when we catch glimpses of the old Jessie – now i HAVE to sign off because now I’ve really teared up! Much love to you and Barb.

  4. She’s just delightful. Great choice of pictures and video too. Hugs to both of you.

  5. Missing you and Mia and missing your mom too because she was so influential in making you the person you are…….Missing my mom too.

      Moms are so missed. When are you coming out to visit us?

      • Oh….I don’t know. I want to, really I do….but with the two kittens ~ I don’t think they are ready to left off alone for long periods of time especially if I expect my house to remain in tact. If Dan EVER gets the promotion he was promised almost a year ago….he will have more time to do what he wants to on his days off. I hesitate to ask him to do much for me because he is always being paged back to work.

    We do miss our moms, don’t we. Mine’s been gone since 1983.
