My Mom passed away a week ago Friday, on Sept. 17, 2010. I was blessed to be with her and let her know that she was loved. She died peacefully.
I'm sad, but also glad to know that Mom did not linger and can move forward into the next phase of her spiritual life.
I want to acknowledge how touching it has been to receive so many expressions of love and support from friends, family, co-workers, and the wonderful care givers who assisted Mom in the last year of her life. Thank you. Most especially I want to thank my husband Jim and my sons Ethan and Evan who have stood by my side and helped so much.
I will truly miss my Mom, and I thank God for her life.
