Farewell to my Mother

I haven't talked to my Mother in a long time,when I tried to call and I did,the phone just rang and the machine would pick up so I would leave a message.My Mother lived in Idaho and I live in Ohio----- long way from Idaho. So I thought everything was "OK" ?    I guess I should of tried harded but I didn't know who to call because that so called Family would not talk to me.....so Friday April 2nd,2010 I had a message on my cell phone and it said" This is Peggy and I wanted to tell you that MY MOM Died! " That's all!!! She is the wicked witch of the West and theres no talking to her so that is how I found Out my Mother Died............. I looked on line for Obituaries and all I found was a death notice and it states that she lived with her daughter(Peggy) ! No wonder I couldn't find her but I don't understand why her phone would still ring unless she kept it?  My Mother was 84 years old,I guess she died of Cancer,she had Breast Cancer and one breast was removed years ago? Why do people have to be so mean,she could of told me she was sick and I could of seen her? All I can say is what goes around comes around...... just wanted to vent ro someone who would listen........ God Bless you All       Needless to say,I didn't get to say Goodbye to her,like my Daughter..

God be with you dear friend. I know family problems are an awful thing to have happen but this with your mother is an unspeakable injustice. I pray you get some kind of peace through all of this. We are your sisters here at DS. Love, dale...brandon\'s mom

I am really sorry I didn\'t comment on this journal entry earlier. Families can be so mean and uncaring at times. And Peggy sounds like a good example of someone who only cares about herself. I don\'t know why bad things happen to good people and you are one of the good ones! Take care of yourself, I really don\'t know what to say. Truly your friend, Barb

Makes you wonder where some people\'s compassion is, doesn\'t it? So hard to be told news of that kind--in that manner. Like you said, what goes around comes around. That I find 100 percent true. I wish you could have had a chance to say goodbye. I know how hard it is not to be able to do that! Love and Hugs, Donna
