This appeared on the Dr. Laura website. I hope to God no one ever feels compelled to write this about me.
This obituary appeared in Saturday's paper. When I started reading it I kept expecting a punch line or a "just kidding," and there wasn't one. Just the sound of a lot of pain, and a life that will not "start living." I suppose they hoped the obituary would provide some sort of satisfaction, but I doubt it did. -- George
Born in New Mexico. She will be met in the afterlife by her husband, her son, and daughter.
She is survived by her daughters and son, grandchildren & great-grandchildren. I apologize if I missed anyone.
She had no hobbies, made no contribution to society and rarely shared a kind word or deed in her life. I speak for the majority of her family when I say her presence will not be missed by many, very few tears will be shed and there will be no lamenting over her passing.
Her family will remember her and amongst ourselves we will remember her in our own way, which were mostly sad and troubling times throughout the years. We may have some fond memories of her and perhaps we will think of those times too. But I truly believe at the end of the day ALL of us will only miss what we never had: a good and kind mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I hope she is finally at peace with herself. As for the rest of us left behind, I hope this is the beginning of a time of healing and learning to be a family again.
There will be no service, no prayers and no closure for the family she spent a lifetime tearing apart. We cannot come together in the end to see to it that her grandchildren and great-grandchildren can say their goodbyes. So I say here for all of us, GOOD BYE, MOM.
