I've got to say goodbye to my mom tomorrow.
This will be the last time.
Could be a week or maybe two and she'll be gone.
I wish I could stay, but I must go home to be with my wife and children.
I will be be returning when momma passes.
I know you guys and gals have to hear this stuff all the time.
I'm just tired of keeping it all inside and I have to type some stuff to you all to feel better.
Please don't ask any guestions, because I don't really have any answers.
I haven't asked nobody WTF is going on yet.
Mom has a living will and Stepdad is going by it.
All us chidren agree with his decision.
Read my sig.

May she go to a better place peacefully then. I'm sorry.My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

I did this myself almost exactly a year ago. I wish I had some advice to impart to you. Other than leave nothing unsaid, I don't have a lot. Life sucks. I wish I could say I had no experience with this one, but the sad truth is I have much. In a four month span starting a year ago, I lost my mother, a good friend, a 17 year old nephew, and my 32 year old wife of 12 years. If I could have five more minutes with any of them, I would spend it telling them how much they meant to me, how my life was better just by having them in it. If nothing else, I'm sure your mother is proud to have raised you, and is proud that you have a wife and kids at home that you are willing to sacrifice for. Let her know that you know how important the job she did was, and thank her for doing it. Whatever has happened between you and mom is in the past. you may not have seen eye to eye on all issues, but that doesn't matter now. Whether you think she already knows it or not, or whether you think she can hear you or not, tell her how you feel. Then go home to your wife and kids and be the man your mom raised you to be. That's the best you can do for her. I wish there was an easy way to go through this, but there just isn't. Try to keep in mind the fact that your stepdad and any siblings are going through a very difficult time as well. Things they do or say may not make any sense to you, but now is the time to cut them a little slack too. Death is the toughest thing that life has to offer and there aren't any answers to the questions it raises. Just deal with it the best you can and keep going on.

My condolenses to you and your family. Let her know what a meaningful part of your life she is and has been. Let her know that you'll miss her and never forget her. Let her know that you'll always carry a piece of her in your heart and be reminded of her in every sunrise, evry warm breeze and every time you wonder why things are the way they are, her memory will help you through it all.R2B4BTU

Prayers are with you. Our mothers are our best friends, always there for us and never judge us...when we lose them it never again seems the same. Hold onto the great memories that the two of have made together and know that someday we all meet again.
