Very,very Sad News For Me, My Momma Passed Away...

Recommended Posts

...this morning. She would have been 92 in May. If anyone was good enough to go to heaven, it was my momma. I don.t think anyone ever said one bad word about her. It may sound like a foolish thing to say about somone over 90 BUT it came as such a shock when I discovered her in bed today. The saddest day I will ever have, I will never get over this.

I was a little down about the recent developments for my colts(her hometown was Baltimore) but was still excited & lookong forward to our future with Luck. But man did we get a perspective of what really is most dear to us today.

I already miss her so much.

I didn't know if I should share all this with everyone,especially since I re-joined this forum recently but I feel like I know some of you from your posts. So I decided to share.

Anyway, life goes on & hopefully our Colts will go on with much success.

You have my sympathies. I lost my mother at 90 almost 2 years ago, and I promise you that it does slowly get easier. I just count myself lucky that she was around for so long. Many don't have that blessing. So many good memories to think about - I see that you have them too. Hang in there.

It is so difficult to articulate & encapsulate the influence & legacy of our mothers & the crucial role they played in molding their children into responsible, caring adults that our parents would ultimately be proud of.

She took care of you when you were ill, she encouraged you when you were depressed & doubted your God given talents, & she always knew just what to say to make you smile, laugh, & carry on through the dark & gloomy times.

Mothers are the unsung heroes of sacrifice in this world. God Bless your mother, family, & friends during this unsettling time...May you find peace & comfort in the positive memories & redeeming impact she left on everyone around her.

LJ, your post really hit home for me.

Three years ago, I was the only at my father's bedside when he passed away. That was a day that I am still trying to forget, but I know I never will.

I am now the main caregiver for my mother who will soon be 91. I realize that the odds are much, much greater that she will pass before I do; but I dread the thought of that day and can't even imagine how hard it was for you to be the one to find your mother.

I am glad that you shared with us not only because it does help one put things into perspective. But, also because much like you, I have come to think of many of the members here as great friends and am glad that you share that same feeling of camaraderie.

My heart goes out to you and my thoughts, tears, and prayers are with you and your family.

I wish there was no 'like' limit. I would like every post on this topic just in thanks to everyone who took the two seconds out of their time to care for someone they've never even met. I have a great deal more respect for many members on this forum now, and I appreciate each and every one of you who commented.

    • If Mack comes back 100% or close, we have 3 very good RB's, Taylor is on the verge of being great IMO.
    • EXACTLY, this team is built to win championships NOW and adding great talent vs adding mediocre talent that ultimately will not help us get over the top is savy!!!  We have a top 5 team as is and can withstand the first 4 games if necessary with Tevi as our LT.  9.4 Mill for a top LT is a STEAL and I don't care when he suits up as long as he does IMO.  Think about that for a minute, 9.4 MIL!
    • I just read through all the posts that have been made since this afternoon after I logged off earlier. There are a lot. It is a wait and see game in reality to when Fisher will be back. I have been reading so many different things and I don't have much of an idea because I don't have access to talking with him or his doctors. Just based on what I have read by what the media and doctors are saying and the type of injury he has, I will take a guess and say he's back by October. It is just a guess, so that would have him playing 3/4 of the season = 12 or 13 games. I will take that. We addressed an area of huge need with a great player when he's healthy for really cheap at 9.4 Mill. That is cheap for a player of his caliber. Everyone should be happy with this IMO, I get the concerns though because an Achilles is a bad injury. Remember Ballard has access to talking with his doctors and Fisher, so I still say he would've never signed Fisher if he thought there was a good chance that Fisher would miss the season.
    • I’d say more like the love child of Emmitt and Earl Campbell.
    • Agreed. I noticed my mistake earlier. I knew it was Al Woods. I did not pay close enough attention to the fact it was Antwaun coming in for a visit and mistook the visit for actually being Al lol   Shoulda known better w the age and fit question marks lol
