I am so touched at your tribute page to your Mother. I understand how you feel. I just lost my mom a year ago yesterday, May 11th...just a few days before Mother's Day. The pain is heavy and sometimes un-bearable, for I miss her so. Our mom's were about the same age- my mom born in 1936- too young to die. My mom also had cancer- the horrible disease that I hate so much. Breast cancer, then metasis to the bones. I feel the same as you- don't understand suffering, oh' the suffering she went through and the loss. Don't. Why did they have to get sick? I know she's in a better place Heaven, but I am selfish and want her here- here and to be well and healthy...but God took her from me. I am an only child of an only child with a sorry father so she was my family. I am blessed with a wonderful husband that she did approve and loved as her own. Still, that isn't the same as my Momma. I will pray for you-for strength, for I need it too. This last year I have fell into a deep depression-(well it started when she got so ill) and just haven't been able to "shake it". People say "time will heal, it'll get better and easier" well, it DOES'NT! It's harder. God Bless you and your family- just know there are others that feel your same pain.

Sheri, Thank you so much for visiting with my mother and I.You have done a beautiful job on your memorial for your dear Mother.Yes with the spring,comes planting the new flowers.But it is so beautiful to watch the progress of their beauty opening up and blooming.With every new growth,every petal that opens,your precious Mother will be glowing with a radiant smile,as she watches them grow.Every rain drop that gently mist the flowers,that will be your Mother helping you tend to them.So you may be planting them alone,but she will be helping with the tending of them.I just wanted to say God bless and keep you.May you have a Happy Mothers Day.Love~~Rose

This is Kristin....you left a beautiful message on the memorial site I made for my two boys, Gabriel and Michael. I want to thank you for that, from the bottom of my heart...but I want to thank you for something else too....

I visited your beautiful mother's site. God rest her soul...my how she was loved. I also lost my mother 2 years ago, and as I could tell from the beautiful poetry and thoughts of love on her memorial, you feel the same as I did...there is nothing quite like losing your mother. Also, she looked like she was italian I know diMeglio is Italian, right? I think that means "the best!!" In any case, if she was an italian mama I know that we italian daughters have a very special bond with our moms. Heck, even if she wasnt italian, mother daughter bonds are the most special. That poem you have on her first page brought me to tears....especially when it came to "You are Christmas Morning" So beautiful....did you write that? What a glorious tribute.

Until I had lost my sons, I had never felt such sorrow as when I lost my mom. I thought of her every day, and of course have desperately wished she was here right now, but the babies and how much I am grieving for them kind of eclipsed the sorrow I still feel even 2 years after mom went home. But I want to thank you for letting me share a moment in remembrance of my mom, while reading about yours. This is really a rambling email, but your tribute to your Angel Mom really touched me so much. And the fact that you found it in your heart to acknowledge my boys is so peaceful to my soul.

Our moms were the same age, and too young to be in heaven if you ask me! Cancer surely is a beast.

Thank you so much again for your sweet message, and if you ever need to talk about the journey through motherloss, please feel free to email. I call it a journey because it never really ends. You never stop needing your mom...and in truth, as much as I know it might not help now since it is still so soon...and trust me, I sort of hated hearing this too....she never stops needing you either and is closer to you than she ever was. Just a whisper away. This poem was read at her funeral and it helped me...I hope it comforts you too.

I have only slipped away into the next room.

I am I, and you are you.

Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name; speak to me in the easy way which you always used.

Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.

Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was, let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.

It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.

All is well.

Peace, Kristin

To My Dearest Sophia, Sheri and Debra, It is always so loving to visit Sophia's Beautiful Memorial, Sheri, Thank you so much for visiting Gino's Memorial. It really means so much to me. You are all so loving and so kind. Your Beautiful words of comfort always make me feel better. It is a very long and difficult journey to go through, isn't it Sheri? My heart goes out to you and I will be thinking of you and praying that God brighten up your Mother's Day with Beautiful Memories of your Beautiful Mother Sophia that you have made all together as a Family through the years. That should put a smile on all of your faces.

May God Bless you all, and Happy Mothers Day.

Hi Mom, The past few days were soooo... difficult for me. You & I always went to the nurseries together at this time of the year to buy flowers to plant, but this time I did it on my own with such a heavy heart. I thought you would want me to continue to do the things that you loved to do. You are a very tough act to follow, but I'm trying my best. I MISS YOU MOM & I LOVE YOU SOOOO......MUCH! Oh! I wanted to tell you about the wonderful people I met here on VM. They are so sweet & caring and they visit with you all the time. Darla, Tina, Trudy just to name a few, who have all lost a loved one, and I just met Rose. I hope that you have met their Angels. I just found out that Rose's Mom Juanita loved Bingo, so I hope you & NaNa have met her & making some big $$$$$ at Bingo. Darla's sister Cathy & Tina's son Gino & Trudy's daughter Gina all are in Heaven, so hopefully you have met them. Mom, Mother's Day is this weekend. Just thinking about it makes me so sad. I wish you were here. How do I get through this day without you? See you on Mother's Day Mom. Love you with all my heart...Forever & ever...Love, Sheri XXXX OOOO

I was checking my emails this morning and saw yours to my precious son John. Yes as his mother he is the most handsome Angel in Heaven. So sorry for you loss of your mother. I also did not get to say goodbye to my son. I know your pain and sorrow. How each day goes into another. Always thinking of them. My prayers are with you. I will visit again to read more of your memories of your precious Mom. A letter to your Mother brought tears to my eyes. Blessings Patricia

My Dearest Debra, Sheri and Angel Sophia, Thank you so much for coming to visit Gino's Memorial. Your visits are always so comforting to me. Your Beautiful Sophia must be very proud of all her family. You are all so caring and so very sweet. I thank you soooo very much again for honouring Gino and I by including us in your wonderful Tribute page. You will always be in my prayers.

Gino must be so happy to have Sophia cooking all of her great Italian recipies for him. I remember when Gino always used say to me that I was the best cook in the world. He always complimented my cooking. Now he is doing the same with your Mom in Heaven. I am so glad my Gino has such great company.

Your Mom Sophia is looking out for her family from Heaven. She will always be around you all to protect you, never forget that!!!!!!

All My Love to you Sheri and Debra, Tina, Mom to Gino Mocci (VM).

To My Beautiful Sophia and Sheri, I was at my sister's 60th Birthday party this evening and I was telling most of my family and close friends that I have had the honour of meeting soooo many wonderful people here at VM. As soon as I came back home I came on my computer to visit my Son and I saw the wonderful entry you wrote for us. Sheri, you are one of the special people I was talking about to my family just tonight. You are so kind and special to me and to so many other paople here at VM. Your Mom Sophia must have been such a loving Mom to have a wonderful Daughter like you Sheri. I will have a Tribute Page that I am still working on and I too would like to also add your Angel Mom to it. I am so sorry that I have not visited as often as I would like to, you know with work and all it seems like 24 hours in the day is not enough sometimes. I love coming on VM and visiting all of our Special Angels, it has helped me so much just visting other special Angels and expressing our feelings and writing a kind word of sympathy to one another is comforting for me. I just want to tell you I love you very much Sheri, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. P.S. Sheri I have a felling Sophia is cooking up a storm for Gino since Gino always enjoyed my cooking here now he is enjoying your Sweet Mom's cooking in Heaven!!!!! Love, Tina, Mom to Gino Mocci (VM).

Dearest Mom, Seven months ago today you were taken from us, and seven months ago today my worse fear became a reality. I truly don't know how I got through these past months. It has been so difficult. Not a day goes by that you are not in my thoughts. Today Keith and I, and Debra and Jimmyboy came to visit you at St.Johns. I hope you knew that we were there. Jimmyboy left you two beautiful gifts (we hid them, so no one would take them). We also left you beautiful Roses and I'm sure what you loved the best..... a frank and a black-cherry soda... LOL. Hope you enjoyed it! I MISS YOU MOM more than you could ever imagine, and I LOVE YOU with all my heart. XXX OOO With all my love forever & ever....You're Daughter Sheri
