She may have moved from this world but her spirit will always be watching over you. I’m so sorry this happened to you. <<hugs>>

I’m so sorry to read this, my heart breaks for you because I went through almost the exact same thing. My mom died of a sudden heart attack in November, and I also didn’t get to say goodbye. I also saw her the weekend before, and was also shopping for ribbon for the wedding with her. There are no words that I can say to ease the pain, and I’m so sorry that her death and your wedding are so close.

I will say this – people are going to be offering a lot of support, and a lot of ideas of how to memorialize your mom at your wedding. It is okay to tell them no thank you, if anything doesn’t feel right. If you think it will make you too emotional, rejecting an idea is not at all an insult to your mom’s memory. You need to grieve how YOU feel comfortable grieving. Some people prefer public displays, and some prefer to grieve internally and with only those closest to you. There is no wrong way to grieve.

Please feel free to PM me if you need to talk – about anything. From emotions to wedding plans. The numbness on day 2 is horrible, and I want to give you a big hug.

My heart is breaking for you. I’m in tears for you but I’m sorry if that’s inappropriate. I am so sorry for your loss particularly at this time. You will have a wonderful and meaningful wedding. Take care

I am so, so, soooo sorry!  I couldn’t imagine going through what you are going through.  Stay strong and now that you have family and friends surrounding you right now who are there for whatever you need — whether it’s justa  shoulder to cry on or a home cooked meal.  <3

@HeyJude72:  I am so very, very sorry for your loss. 

Both my parents have passed away and can tell you this – you never, ever really lose them.  I always imagined I feel this terrible empty spot in my life that could never be filled again but it isn’t like that at all.  Their love for you and yours for them never, ever goes away.  Even though my parents aren’t here, I know them well enough that I can just imagine what they would say, do, think, want – they gave me the gift of their guidance and unconditional love and support and all that remains too.

My thoughts and prayer are with you and your family.

@HeyJude72:  I am so very sorry for your loss.  She will certainly be looking down and smiling as you celebrate your wedding.  Celebrate her life, from what you’ve said about her, it’s what she would have wanted.  Hugs and prayers your way xo

I am so sorry for your loss! I lost my mom suddenly last fall and also never got to say goodbye. It tore me apart. She never even got to help me plan our wedding. Though it may be hard, try to remember the joy she brought you- it sounds like she had a big part in creating your wedding and was very excited for you. She will be there, just not in the way you had expected. You can never truly understand how a loss like this feels until you’ve been there. Feel free to PM me if you need someone to listen.
