Why does my ex boyfriend's mother continue to call?

I'll try to make this short- my ex and I were together for two years, and had broken up twice before (I think mainly because of communication issues we had). Anyways, he ended it like a coward, and I tried to talk to his parents about it since we had always had a great relationship. He's an only child, and they've always been pretty close. He's pretty reserved with his emotions though, so I'm not surprised that they don't totally know what's going on with him. We are in our mid to late 20s, so I think he may have wanted to break up because it was getting too serious for his liking, and I believe he had some insecurity issues. All that aside, we haven't spoken in several months, and I'm still very hurt that I didn't get a good explanation as to why we split. I understand that maybe we aren't meant to be together right now, and we both need to move on. Since we broke up though, his mom has been calling me to see how I'm doing, and it honestly is hard for me to talk to her. I love them very much and I know they love me, but I don't think they understand that it just reminds me of what I don't have anymore. I also know that they want nothing more than for us to be together. You would think that she might have been able to shed some light as to why her son acted how he did, how he's feeling, what he's been up to etc., since she knows how I feel (or did when we broke up anyways). Any advice out there as to why she still calls me, and if there is any other motive than to simply say hello? I hate it, but I'm very analytical and would like to try to understand and I figured some people out there may have some experience out there.
