Tomorrow is my mom's birthday

She would have been turning 72. I’m going to try to make it over to the cemetery tomorrow; the weather is supposed to be fine. I don’t think I went there on her birthday last year.

She died from breast cancer in 2006. I pretty much fell apart, was fortunate to have my then-gf (now ex-wife) for support.


I got this tattoo for her, my first tattoo, in 2014, on the left side of my chest (over my heart). At first it was just a breast cancer ribbon by itself; I had the MOM and dates added six months later, and I regret that addition. It’s fine now, but I just think it looked better as just the ribbon.



I’m sorry to hear about your mother. I am sure she would appreciate you remembering her birthday.


It makes me feel lucky to be alive. I’m just about her age.

Yeah, she was only 59 yrs old when she died.

My dad was 69 yrs old when he died from a massive heart attack in 2013.

So, with your parents gone, do you have any family?

I have my sister, brother-in-law and their kids as family, and that’s about it. My grandparents and their siblings have all passed on as well.

That’s about the same with me. I have my sister, brother- in -law and two nieces, two grand nephews.
