Fail - IF second entry

My second entry for this week Illustration Friday - Fail24 years ago, my mother had a severed head injured, she was hit by a motorcycle. She was in Coma few days later, she was in life support weeks later, in few days Dr. pronounced she's brain dead...
All my sisters and brothers and some close relatives got together to say good bye to my mom when my father disconnect the life support..... I am the youngest in my family, I wish I was there to hold her hand and say my love when she take her last breath...... but..... I FAILED............ I didn't make it....... I was too depressed and I got hold back at home.. My sister told me, mom is in peace, she left with peace tears even she unconscious.... her heart will go on forever in our heart......Yes, we miss her so much......

I am so sorry to read your story. I can sympathize with you. I lost my mom also, years ago, and I was not there even though my siblings were. My mom kept asking for me and "waiting" for me. But....my phone was off and I could not be reached. It still haunts me 10 years later. So, I just want to say that I understand, and I am sorry you have to live with those feelings of failure. I know what that feels like.

Your illustration is beautiful.

What a sad story. So sorry to hear you all had to go through that. It reminds me too of my mom's death, where she was not conscious for the last week of her life. Very sad to see someone you love in that state. I miss her too.
