There's a nice (at least to many of my compatriots) Ukrainian song called mAmyna vYshn'a - Mother's Cherry-Tree. There's a sort of pretty extremely low budget music video for it, practically every Ukrainian has rural, agricultural roots. Everybody has grandparents who live in a village. So, this esthetics may be very foreign to some. Still, the nicest in this song is the words. In Ukrainian. I am not an expert in translation, so believe me, the words say good things of a mother, and that's it:

To the more modern in all respects music. Another Ukrainian female singer, once titled the Golden Voice Of Ukraine, Taisiya Povaliy, performed this famous (for us) a cappella song about mother in Ukrainian. It is a tearjerker, actually, again: 



There are two notable moments about this stuff. First, Mrs. Povaliy is now hated by many Ukrainians as she was the member of the Party Of Regions and did not support Euromaidan. Some go that far as to say she is the enemy of Ukrainian people. Like, Stalin has died, but his terminology lives on... Second, the man who wrote the lyrics (he was actually the poet and it was the poem, initially) was the life-long member of the Communist Party... Uhm, not every Communist kills and rapes, in fact those who did, mostly died in the 1950s - if we speak about our lands, at least. The Communists also led this woman with a golden voice from a distant village to become a celebrity. I am not going to defend the Communism as such, I am just telling that hardly anybody in North Korea would love to live in it if he/she had a choice. But that's not quite the case with post-Stalin USSR, oh no. There was a very specific Soviet atmosphere that many miss today. Not that they want it back - but to just paint the Soviet Union black... that's childish. And that's very untrue. Though in case of Pol Pot's Cambodia, North Korea et al - yeah, there's hardly anything that people would really miss.

I hope that I helped you to think of something else than your loss, and so somewhat made you feel better. 

As you can easily see, English is far from being my native tongue :-). 
Still, I thought for a long time what would I write on the death of my mother (which has not happened, yet). Again, excuse me if I chose wrong words, as I improvised and it was a stream of words that looked nicely and sounded nicely rather than having obvious meaning - but there's a verse, which I hope can be interesting to you: 

Tonight my mother has died
Was she ideal? Was she perfect? 
Was her all life right?

Then tell me the truth 
Of people wretched in blood, wrenched with blood 
Kind of being kind 
Pretty woven, gladly blind.

What if they are forsakenly forethought 
Aren't grand enough, weren't gruesome nor tough
Riders of the rite, 
Compare them all them crap 
To my mom, 
Darling Mom
That has timelessly died a few moments before,  
tonight.

Thank you all for your kind words.

There was a ridiculous aftermath to her death. The doctor who issued the death certificate found a black and blue spot on the back of my Mum and informed the police; we were actually suspected of having done away with her, and an autopsy was made. Of course it turned out that this had not been the case.

Granted we are exceedingly good at exporting not just our crass culture but also the very seedy side of America aboard but it does seem the good Doctor has been watching just a bit too much cheap trashy American reality T.V and thinks everyone is out to off dear old mom for a few damn dollars. 

sorry to hear that Friede.. as it that wasn't difficult enough.. and so for all Americans.. I do apologize..

For your mother: RIP
For you: condolences and wish you spiritual strength. Death is instant for a person, she neither suffers nor enjoys life anymore, which is OK. Yet it can be compelling or overwhelming for the family and friends. Hope it can be smooth for you, as far as it can get.
