A Eulogy For My Mom Who Passed Away Unexpectedly
This is the most heartbreaking blog post I've ever written; it's simply hard to write. Just like the obituary & the eulogy for my mom; my dear mom. I'm an only child, only 30 years old, & these are just things I wasn't expecting to have to do at such a young age. But if you find yourself reading this blog post, I truly hope it helps you. Losing a parent is something unimaginable. Losing a loved one is never easy. So as I make my way through this grieving process I expect to be on for the rest of my life, I wanted to share the eulogy I wrote for my mom. She deserves to be honored beyond my one-time speech & I hope you can use my words to inspire your eulogy if you, unfortunately, have to write one, too.
30 years with you was just not enough, but here we are. Unfortunately, we’re all here.
To sum up the reactions from everyone about hearing you are no longer with us include:
Are you joking?
I have no words.
My heart aches for you.
The last one for me, Dad, Richie, our family, friends, & dogs, is that our hearts are literally shattered.
We know you were not ready to leave us, but we are so thankful you lived such an amazing life while you did.
You were so excited about your new back & we cannot believe this is the outcome of your surgery.
However, we can be thankful to have such amazing final memories with you.
The last embrace… those last words… Wow, did we get lucky.
But, we all know this is truly so unfair. To all of us.
Devastating, heartbreaking, unimaginable, tragic, everything.
There are no words, yet so many to describe how we feel about losing my mom, dad’s wife, Richie’s Momma Kitch, Clancy’s mom, Kallen’s grand-mom, a beloved sister & sister in law, aunt, friend, colleague… all of the amazing titles you held.
