    12 Years Ago Today.

    I lost my Mom 12 years ago today to lung cancer.

    I love you and I miss you Mom!

    Nice, touching post, Vike. I'm sure your mom is right there with you.
    I know it's been 12 years, but I'm very sorry to hear about this incredible loss.

    Hey man, I'm truly sorry for your loss.

    Take comfort in knowing that she no longer suffers, and the problems of this world are no longer her concern.

    We love you Vike, so hang in there.

    I lost my mother 16 years ago to liver cancer and for me, it's not that it gets easier (because it doesn't at all), but the pain lessens just a tiny bit so that I'm able to smile at her memory more easily with each passing year. I'll be thinking about you today, Vike.

    So sorry. Time makes it a bit easier to deal with but it never goes away. Your mother was very beautiful, btw.

    It's been 34 years since my mom passed away, in October.
    In January, it will be 7 years since my dad passed away.

    A lot of us have those memories of our Mother Vike....you are not alone on days like these. The Brew family will be thinking of you and your family!
    Just go for it!

    Wow, bro, that's REALLY sad, but very lovely that you devoted a thread to her, very nice gesture man. I know what its like to lose a loved one, just nothing like a mom. At least you're striving on well, which is what matters most.

    You and her will be in my thoughts and prayers
    In and out. I didn't even make that pun on purpose.

    I think I do a thread for my Mom every year. I do miss her and even after 12 years I still lose it every now and then.

    I actually have a webpage dedicated to her on my site, but I have a lot of work to do on it. It's a hard thing to do.

    Thought I'd posted already, but I guess I didn't - not sure what to say, but glad your mom meant so much to you that even today you still find ways to memorialise her. If you have children someday, hope you are the kind of parent that they feel the same way about you.
