These two sisters had a lot of confessions to make to their deceased mother who had passed away a year ago and it's downright hilarious but heartfelt too.
Everyone deals with grief differently and coping mechanisms once their beloved family member or friend passes away. Some choose to mourn in silence others take a completely different route and grieve in the most unpredictable way possible. The biggest example of an unusual way of grieving was shared by Sara Wollner, who goes by @sarawollner on TikTok, along with her sister, Katie Riggins.
Wollner and Riggins have decided to create a video where they can revive the memories of their mother through humor and let all of us know that their life is as chaotic as it used to be when she was alive. “Confessions to our dead mom,” Wollner captions her viral video. Their mother Karen had passed away from pancreatic cancer in Albany, New York in July 2022, as per Motherly. “Number one, we didn’t know that we had to file your taxes,” Wollner wheezes while confessing. “Nope!” I mean, seriously, how are we supposed to know these things if our moms don’t tell us?" Riggins affirms.
The sisters frequently break out in fits of laughter while adding more confessions to their list. They continue to make revelations about how Riggins had no clue about getting her own insurance policy and ended up driving an uninsured car for about seven months. Ultimately, Riggins ended up getting her mom's license plate suspended. In another round of confessions, the sisters reveal how Wollner got a stomach virus, skipped attending their older sister Megan's baby shower and Riggings had to do most of the organizing for the ceremony by herself.

Riggins had also decided to take part in a charity walk for cancer which didn't go very well. “I couldn’t finish it. And I think I broke my foot,” she recalled. “I don’t want you to think I didn’t cry at your funeral because I didn’t care,” Wollner continues with another round of laughter. “I was so pregnant that if I cried, I would have thrown up.” “We’ll continue to disappoint you as time goes on,” Riggins adds. Looks like their mom is probably looking down at them from heaven and wondering what her chaotic grown-up children will be up to next.
The sisters' humorous confessions and hearty laughter won over the netizens and they flocked to the comment section and applauded for their way of remembering their late mother. @nobodyzattorney wrote, "I lost my mom over a year and a half ago and I’ve been very depressed but seeing this video and your perspective is so refreshing and heartwarming." @courtneyville shared, "I think I'll do this in reverse...I'm gonna write confession letters to my kids & leave them in my belongings to find when they clean out my stuff." @angierock72 quipped, "Sounds like you all had a great relationship. You must have kept her on her toes & in stitches from all the laughing. You two are hilarious!"
The sister duo also made a second part of the confession video after the first one went viral with over 21 million views on TikTok and fellow netizens demanded to know more about their due confession. "So I had a little bit of a situation and I had to move twice in two months and on the second chaotic move, I somehow landed a box on my stove which turned on and the box caught on fire. My new apartment was smelling like smoke," Riggins started with the first confession.

"When we were moving your stuff out of the apartment, we nearly dropped your Dyson vacuum, the wheel popped off and it rolled across the driveway and it collided with a stranger's car," Wollner said while adding to the apartment hopping story of Riggins. Wollner mentioned that they were somehow able to repair that vacuum but it no longer works. "So never mind," Wollner said and the sister duo burst off into another round of their wheezing laughter. It's certain they had a precious relationship with their deceased mom and they continue to keep her memories alive through fun and bouts of laughter.
