  1. -Off speaker and stops current music to show respect-

    Take care! I am sure she’s is looking upon you, being your angel that blesses you all the time.

  2. i love this verse from timothy. it is a touching and meaningful verse. i used to have it (the verse) on my PC desktop some time back.

    peter, rest be assured your mum is with you always, as sue-n stated, looking upon you. although my dad had passed away for more than 10 years, i always feel his presence. it may be strange but when i’m alone at say dangerous/risky situation, i rely on my dad’s presence to give me courage… like he is with me always like my angel.

  3. Dear Peter,

    I came across “All About Mum” last month .I sheded tear while reading the articles as I was touched by the love; hope; grief; pain; sorrow and helplessness in the writings.

    It is painful to lose someone we love so much but
    life goes on and time will heal the wound.

    Take good care of yourself, this would be what your mother wanted in heaven.

    God bless you.


  4. All you should do now is lead a good life despite your shortcomings so that all your mum’s effort would be appreciated.

    God Bless her soul.

  5. Thank you all again. I am glad I am part of this community. You people are the best. May God bless you all for your kindness and concern.

    Yes, you are right but the memories when they appear can sometimes be painful.

  7. Peter – I’m sure you have more good memories than bad. We need to train ourselves to remember only the good.
