My Mom



My Mom passed away peacefully this afternoon at 12:20 PM.  Both Craig and I were by her side as she departed.  We were fortunate to have had the services of Hospice for the past 24 hours, and they were extremely helpful.  Mom was a dear, sweet lady who never complained and always had a smile and kind words for everyone she met.  We shall miss her terribly.


Here is a photo of her with our dear Charlie, taken on Father's Day - not even two weeks ago.




PEACE & LOVE

So sorry to hear about your mother. It was good that she was able to meet her great grandson and I can see a real connection between them. My thoughts are with you.

I'm reading this late Judy but wanted you to know I'm thinking of you all. I lost my Mom in 2006 and I miss her still. I'm sure it helped both you and her that you could be there to say goodbye and let her go.
