My friend Mark lost his mom this week.
What a sad thing it is to lose one’s mother. The very woman who God used to give us life suddenly has no more life in her own body. It’s hard to wrap one’s mind around.
Hearing what my friend was going through in his time of loss and grief reminded me of what my family experienced a decade ago.
My sister and I lost our mom out of the blue one day back in June of 2003. She just got up one morning and before dad even saw her come into the kitchen, she was gone. That was the worst day.
