Bobs said...

Someone sent me this when I lost my first husband ...... and again when I lost my son ....

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was
There is absolute unbroken continuity
What is death but a negligible accident?
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.

Dyan, I am so very sorry, I send my condolences to you and your family at this sad time. Although you are very sad and upset now, the time will come when you will remember with happiness, laughter and fondness your Mum. Remember the funny things which made you all laugh, the touching things she did for you, remember her with love.
