Update on my Mom
I wanted you all to know that my Mom passed away last night. I was with her for a long time, then left to have some dinner. That's when she passed. The nurse said that she thinks sometimes the person waits until loved ones leave before they pass on - she's seen it many times. Whatever, the case, my Mom passed peacefully. She never had any pain. I know she was ready to be with my Dad and we were ready to let her go. I miss her already - not the woman she had become, but the woman I knew most of her life. We were very close, and it was hard to watch her disappear little by little. She was such a beautiful, caring lady. The staff at the nursing home just adored her...as did everyone who knew her all through her life. I'm reminded of how fortunate she was to have a long, relatively healthy life until her later years.. This really became clear when I read Marycain's post ("Prayers Needed Please" from yesterday) about the young mother who developed terminal cancer immeidately after giving birth to her first child. How sad, and how unfair, that her life would be ending just as her new child's life has begun. I am saying prayers for this family, Marycain, and ask for prayers for my family as we say goodbye to my Mom. Thank you all for your support.
