Funeral Trip

Been a while since I have posted anything… Life has been emotionally interesting. Isn’t it always for everyone?

I’m only posting this here in hopes and dream that I can go… So here it goes.


This is from my facebook post..

“Do you know completely awkward it feels to post something about yourself? I am not a person that shares anything really personal on Facebook or anywhere on social media. But my momma died… I will never get to smell her, feel her or hug her ever again. I won’t get to hear her voice or tell me, everything will be, okay…

I have been sick for some time. Cancer took away many of the things I used to take for granted, like walking and breathing…

I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. I have never asked that and never will. I just want to go to my Debra (my moms) funeral.

If you can help… I would greatly appreciate it.”

Thank you for your time. If you can share this, that would be awesome. If not, I completely understand.




  1. I have been behind in Reader for months. I am sorry to hear about your mom – my mom had been bedridden for some time and she passed away suddenly. It is quite a shock … the things you wanted to say and didn’t get to. She had a perforated bowel which she/I did not know about. She passed away 12 hours after going to the E.R. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

      • It was a shock and I have no family at all – so very unexpected. The ER said 12 hours to live and that was it. My mom had medical issues her entire life – hit by a car at age 11 and had 42 orthopedic operations in her life. She spent age 11-15 in the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. She got osteomyelitis (infection of the bone) … she had an ear infection when she was hit by a car – her ribs were taped up and the ear infection caused an infection to set into the bone. This is why I don’t take my good health for granted – ever.
        I watched her suffer. You know suffering too.
        Life sucks sometimes – plain and simple. Good luck to you – you are in my prayers.

      • I know – she had a lot of pain and misery, then to have a perforated bowel and that was painful – she died of sepsis from the perforated bowel. She could have at least had a good marriage but my father ran off, taking all the money in the bank and an annuity fund, leaving her penniless. Good thing the house was mortgage-free.

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss! And all the hardship you are going through with your cancer!
    So did you get to go to the funeral? How has all of that worked out? I hope you don’t mind me asking.
