The title pretty much says it all. I got a late night call that my mother had slipped into a coma and died. Cancer.

Mason, You are in my thoughts and prayers. It is so hard to lose your parents. I lost both my parents at an early age. Take care and try to remember the great times you had. If you need to talk i'm always here.

Mason, my prayers are with you and your family. No matter how long you expect it, when the loss comes it is still hard to accept. Celebrate your mother's life and remember the good. Our memories are what makes a person live on. May you find peace.

How awful for you to have been away at this sad moment. I can tell you from experience that the pain will lessen, but the memories will stay bright. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Mason, my heart is with you. My mother died last year so I can empathize a bit. Mothers are amazing people and their loss (in my experience) leaves a huge hole in life. These initial days will be hectic, emotionally as well as physically. So be kind to yourself and rest as much as you can.

I think that losing a parent or a child is the hardest thing most of us ever have to go through. I'm sure you'll weather the storm, but I'm sorry that you have to and wish you the best at a difficult time.
