Mum, you were a gem, a woman of virtue, a blessing, always at peace with yourself and with others around you. You taught us the value of hard work, the fear of God, the importance of prayer and the meaning of love and humility.

Mum, you were an embodiment of respect, peace, wisdom, kindness, open heartedness. You were a package, an institution.....no single word can describe you.

We loved you to bits. We will forever miss you. You are irreplacable!

your loss
by: Janelle

Dear Brenda,

I'm so sorry for the loss of your mum. She sounds like a wonderful woman than anyone would want to know.

I imagine your family all has different ways of expressing their grief. Grief affects us all differently. I don't know if you had time to look around the site. Many people like to make memory books as a way to keep the memories alive for future generations. Someday the children will be asking for stories, so keep telling them.

Telling stories of our loved ones also helps with grief. It helps us feel connected to our loved one even after they have passed on.

Others find that they need to work through their grief emotions in more proactive ways. They have a lot of strong emotions that they feel needs to be expressed. During a crisis such as the loss of a loved one, people bodies react with the natural fight, flight, freeze response. This creates a lot of emotionally charged energy in the body that can sometimes stay frozen within the nervous system. Further explanation about this can be found on the trauma awareness and healing pages.

Folks experiencing this state of frozen emotions may also find help on the grief journaling or the stages of grief hub pages.

May you each in your family find your own ways to be honest with your pain while continuing to look for beauty and hope in life.
