A Tribute To My Mom Betty

My Mom Betty 1931-2008

Everything Mom

How did you find the energy, Mom
To do all the things you did,
To be teacher, nurse and counselor
To me, when I was a kid.

How did you do it all, Mom,
Be a chauffeur, cook and friend,
Yet find time to be a playmate,
I just can’t comprehend.

I see now it was love, Mom
That made you come whenever I'd call,
Your inexhaustible love, Mom
And I thank you for it all.

Online, we tend to go for the cheap shot and the glib zinger, so it's hard to know what to say when real life intrudes.
Just know that my prayers (and I think I'm not alone in this) are with you and your family. We'll be here when you get done taking care of business.
Best wishes,

Uncle Pavian

Marie, condolences for your loss, I remember, when I lost my mother, the sense of emptiness I felt, like a part of my own life had gone.

My sincere prayers for you and your family, and G-d bless.

My most sincere condolences Marie. Moms are something special and going through our busy lives we must always remember how special Moms are. My Mother passed away back in 2002 but I still miss her and her cheery way of going about life. I help out with a friend of mine's Mom and she insists I call her Mom too! My prayers have been with you and your family Marie and I will continue to do so. God bless you and keep you and your family.

Beautiful tribute Marie. God bless you as you cope with the emptiness that always follows the loss of someone so close to you.

She will always be with you because you will always remember.

You now have a guardian angel who looks out for you because that is what she has done since you were born and now she smiles from heaven with strength and help from the Lord and her ever continuing love for you!

God bless you Marie!

So sorry to hear about your loss Marie. I know how difficult it must be for you right now. Grief is not something that is easy to get over and should not be rushed. It's part of a difficult and lengthy healing process.

If there were words I could type that would help in any meaningful way I would do so.

But I hope it's enough to say that I miss you.

Thank You All for your prayers, they mean more to me than you know.

I am getting better and intend to get back into the fight very soon.

Even if I have to use my Dad's computer to do it.

Gonna have to kick the man off from time to time lol

Again, Thank You All

I am so sorry for your loss, Marie. That is a lovely tribute to a loving Mom.

Thank You Word,

I realize that now that she not only lives on through me but my children and grandchildren as well.

This whole experience has also made me get used to the idea that soon I will have to deal with my Father also. And I will know what I will have to do.

In a strange way this has brought my father and I alot closer. We were not that close except when I was a little girl.

And now he drags me all over the place with him just like he did when I was young. Checks on me every 5 minutes, and wont let me out of his sight.

My mom alway's told me he loved me and now he is proving it :-)

I dont think you ever get over the loss of a parent, you just get used to it.

I am happy now that she is at peace and she is now with all her brothers and sisters and her mother which she loved dearly also.


Thank you,

I am on my Dad's computer in California and I am having a time replying on your blog with his FireFox browser.

I dont understand why this thing wont let me reply to certain blogs.

I guess I will have to learn FireFox the hard way.

Again Thank You

Awwwww Thank's Fed,

That means alot to me.

I feel all your prayers from here and Thank You.

If your parents are still alive treasure every moment you have with them, that's going to be my advice from now on.

And if you and a family member dont get along, try your best to put the past behind you and treasure the moments you have while they are still alive.

Life is to short to let old crap get in the way of what you have left with that person.

Because the last time you talk with them may very well be your last even if you dont know it.

Thank You for the kind words and I appreciate every one of you.

I will take your wise words of reflection to heart.

Firefox is my main browser, btw.

Having gone through this I have learned alot about heartache, Love, and how precious time really is.

If your parents are still living or even one of them or a brother/sister, treasure every single moment you can with them.

I didnt realize how short time really is until now. And it's alway's going to hurt, but you get used to it slowly.

Just remember and treasure.

I am slowly learning Firefox and this isnt so darn bad after all :-)

Very sorry to hear this, Marie. I hope you mom didn't suffer and I'm glad to hear you're getting back in touch with dad. I squandered my chance and regret it now.

No actually my mom went the way I would like to go, in her sleep.

I can feel she is at peace now and that is comforting.

No I'm not squandering my last chance with my father. I have a bad feeling he wont be far behind.

So I have to live part time here in Cali now, and part time in Oklahoma, and I dont know how I'm going to pull all this off, I'll mutter though it somehow, I dont have any choice.


Thank You very much DD.

I appreciate all the prayers.
