When my mom died, I was told that I'd joined a club. It’s one we'll all be a part of one day—some of us just join a little early.
I created the Dead Moms Club site because, for many of us in The Club, speaking our mom’s name can be hard for others to deal with but incredibly important for us.
So here I’ll share stories, memories, and names of our dead mothers, to keep them on the tips of our tongues, at the front of our minds, and in a place that honours their existence.
Of course, the stories we have to tell about our moms are incredibly varied. I am so grateful for the range of experiences my fellow members chose to share — positive, negative, complicated, and simple. They come from all kinds of people who have lived all kinds of lives with their moms. So enjoy it all, from the beauty to pain to never-ending processing.
