..."and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest..."




the last picture.

My precious mama passed away three days later,
September 13, 2011.

I was asleep at her bedside, 
and although she had been in a great deal of pain all that final day,
the end came quickly and quietly.
No more pain, no more suffering, no more tears.

Goodnight, Mama.
I love you to the moon and back,
and I will see you again on the other side.

if you have ever lost someone, please play this song.
for me, it says it like no other.

Oh, so very sorry! Unfortunately I've been where you are.....(.

I have a picture very much like yours with your beautiful mama with my own taken last year. I know that God's grace IS sufficient and that He will never leave you or forsake you. His mercies are new every morning, and will walk with you during these days, weeks, and months ahead.
I will keep you in my daily prayers. Love and hugs,

Dearest Anne,

Please accept my heartfelt sympathies for the loss of your precious Mother.
I wept when I read your heartbreaking post & my heart goes out to you in your time of sorrow. I wish you could know how much you are cared for, the high regard in which you are held, and how deeply your loss is felt by us all.

May the love of those around you, your faith, and the loving memories of a lifetime sustain you in the days ahead. Your dear mama loves you, she is so proud of you and she will be with you in your heart always.
It is impossible to imagine the tragedy and magnitude of your loss, but I pray you find hope in the midst of your sorrow and comfort in the midst of your pain.
May God grant you peace and ease your heartache. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted" Matthew 5:4

With Deepest Sympathy,
Michelle x

awal.ny said...

I am sorry the loss of your mother, you are not alone in your sorrow.

ShantyGirl said...

Anne, My heart goes out to you. May God give you peace and the ability to smile again. I lost my mother 6 months ago to whom I was very close and I understand how you feel. I still cannot drive by the street that is only 1 mile from my house that she lived on I have to take an out of the way route to not pass it, I pulled up to that place at least 3-4 times a week with her waiting looking out the window. I am glad you got to say your goodbyes. The loss of a mother is an almost unbearable thing for us to take. I even questioned the design of gods plan and life if we had to go through something so painful. I am now able to smile and remember the good times but I sure do feel for you and send hugs and prayer your way. God Bless

I feel awfully sorry for your loss, Anne. No matter how much pain they are in, or how old they are, it is excruciating to lose someone you love that has been such a pillar in your life...and we are never, ever the same.

I'm sorry you lost your mom. How beautiful that you could be with her. You have a tough road ahead, especially this next year having to go through holidays and special occasions without her.

My prayers are with you and your family, sweet one.

Oh Anne,
I'm so sorry...:( Darn it ~ it's just so hard to lose your mom. I lost mine 12 years ago Sept. 25th, and it was truly so very hard.
I'm praying for you my sweet friend. Did you know our loved ones, who have passed, are our guardian angels? That gave me so much comfort to know and I really believe it. So know she is near....and watching over you..

i am so sorry Anne. may the words of love for you here from all of us sustain you in this time. as well, and more importantly the words of our faith.
in my fondest of thoughts, Tilda

Thank you for sharing this private moment, Anne. Beth Neilson Chaman's Sand and Water is the most heartbreakingly beautiful song; it moves me every time I hear it.

This is such a lovely photo. Your mother's eyes are so clear and bright... your eyes already brimming with tears to come. I lost my mother 14 years ago and she has been with me so often since then. Just close your eyes and feel her warm presence in quiet moments.
Take care x Jane

SHERRY HART said...

First of all...no need to write me back....I lost my Mom from lung cancer 10 years ago. As I write this I can not believe it has been that long. I lost my Dad 10 years before that and seriously thought I would never get over it. It was my first major loss and I just was not prepared for that in life. No manuals on how to deal with losing a parent. When I lost my Mom...who died in my arms....I knew I would be OK...after all I made it through my Dad's death. That was my only saving grace. She was SO incredibly brave as I know your Mom was also. NOTHING will make you feel better. As "trite" as it sound the only thing that helps is "Time". Everyday you will cry a little less and smile a little more at the wonderful memories she gave you. Then one day you will think of her and just smile, at all the love, time, care, and wisdom she brought into your life. My heart is heavy with your grief as I have walked in your shows.

WendyW said...

Hello dear Anne, what a beautiful photo of you and your mum, holding it together, her brave smile and you trying to hold back the tears and treasuring that special precious moment together. The Lord is with you all and will uphold you in whatever lies ahead. Please accept my sympathies and thank you for sharing this private moment with us. love and prayers, Wendy xxoo

Anne- hoping and praying you feel safe within all the prayers that are coming before His throne on you and your family's behalf.

I remember the days after my Dad passed away and it felt so strange that the world just seemed to go on as normal- why wouldn't it stop as it seemed my life had during that time and grieve with me...

Karen said...

Oh Anne. If you ever read these comments - just know we do survive. Sometimes it doesn't feel like we will - but we do. Take your time, do what you need to do, don't let anyone rush you and say "Times up!".
Sigh. I am so sorry. As always - you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Karen

Carolyn said...

So very sorry Ann, I pray for strength for you in the coming days ahead.
The song is beautiful, and so true.

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, we will be changed. I too look forward to that day when I will see my mom and dad once more.

Thank you for sharing your precious mom with us.

Olive Cooper said...

I know there is nothing I can say to make this better or easier. Thankfully you were with her at the end and you have that assurance you will be re-united in eternity. It is my experience that time does not heal because memories pop up for me at the odd times still. Your faith in God is what you cling to that is what heals.

Suzann said...

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. What a precious picture of you and your mom it will be a treasure.


Suzann ~xoxo~

SconeLady said...

You and your family are in my prayers -- that you will truly feel God's Comforting hand holding you close.

You and your Mom share beautiful and expressive eyes. I can see the love as well as the pain in yours. Please take some time to grieve and heal Anne. And know so many are praying for you!

stefanie said...

I am so sorry for your loss...you can see how much she loved you!!! her eyes tell all!

Vicki said...

I wish I could find the right words to make it all better sweet friend. I am so sorry that you have lost your Mom to this terrible illness. I am so glad you were with her in the end and helped walk her home. I am sure you brought her so much comfort during the past few weeks. I hope you will take the time away you need to rest, reflect and grieve her loss. I know time and faith will help ease the pain you feel today. xoxo

Dear Anne,

Michelle Palmer said...

Praying for you~
As I sit beside my mom, in hospital rooms... watching her breath, remembering little things... too tired to face my fear of losing her~ I know as you have written, "I will see you again~ on the other side"
The journey is painful.

Thank you for sharing your heart~ All those wonderful memories tucked inside will keep her near.

So sorry for your loss:(

elizabeth said...

I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you love and prayers. My Mama passed away in January. It's really an incomprehensible loss isn't it?

Susan said...

This post moved me to tears, Anne. What a precious and raw picture. Your Mom's strength to smile and your love & grief. The love you have for each other will live on always. One of my favorite things the author G.K. Chesterton wrote is 'Heaven is our native land'.
No more pain and suffering there.
You are in my prayers,
Susan

Anne, I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing your mother is something that no one can describe, and I'm sad that you now understand that loss. I wish for you in the days, weeks, months, and years to come that you will find strength in the bond you had. That you will find peace in her presence all around you. And that you will find joy in the wonderful memories that no one can take from you. If you need anything, please let me know!
