1991: My Mother's Funeral

The organ played the psalm unto the grieving somehow to balm the feelings of the living as though no dark deceiver had come thieving. Memories are the gift that keeps on giving; questions have no hope of ever relieving. Could I have been a better son when living? Supposed regrets come visit as a greeting to stab us in the heart before retreating.

    No regrets Dale. Wouldn't do any good if you did. Can't second guess yourself. Obviously from the poem you loved your mother and I'm sure she loved you. Just cherish your memories. I am sorry for your loss:(

    When we lose someone as close as a parent, we always ask the question you did in the lovely remembrance of your Mom. I've lost both parents, but not my memories of them. Those stab wounds of conscience are just thorns to help us remember. No regrets, Dale. From this one I can see your love.

    It's so hard to lose a loved one. My husband and I both lost our fathers in 1994, but as you said you still have the gift of memories. I hope that can be a comfort to you.

    I completely understand this poem of yours Dale, with such loss, we can easily look back questioning. I hope you can embrace the good memories. Take care.

    She will always be apart of you. Be happy, that's all a mother wants for a child.
