Cheezy,

I have not lost either of the parents yet, but I truly believe you keep lost loved ones alive by revisiting your best memories of them. I have lost close friends and I look back at the happy times and smile. Some people may call it crazy, but I still talk to a number of them on a regular basis. They just don't always respond verbally.

Yeah that sucks man. My mom's still alive but I lost my big brother almost 8 yrs ago and it really sucked. I don't know how old you or your mom are/was but it can still be hard if your mom was 90. Best of luck getting through and just venting about it can help a lot, it helped me through some big losses.

Hey bro, once again I'm sorry that today has to be a bad memory for you. Cheers to your mom. I'm actually drinking one of my favorite beers to toast her right now, but I won't say what it is.

This is the first I saw this thread.
Very sorry to hear about it.
Always remember the good and just keep her alive in your heart.

I'm sure your mother would give you the same advice.

She was 63. Breast cancer not detected due to dense breast tissue. Stage 4 when discovered.

She was very artistic and opinionated.

I still see or hear things and immediately think "I'll tell mom about this".
