My adorable mom passed away on Monday night. We knew it was coming, but saying a final goodbye is so hard. I look at her pictures through the years, and remember such a vital, compassionate, spunky, kind, funny woman...and am so thankful for her and for all the wonderful memories. I'm heading to Lincoln, NE for her funeral, and to see my three sisters again. The last time we were all together, was almost exactly a year ago, when my sweet dad died. I'm 'busy', tying up loose ends here before I go, but feel like I'm in a fog.
|My, how we both changed!|
She was on this earth for 96 years, 2 months, and 22 days. I was so blessed to have her as my Mom.
|This was my last visit with her, a year ago, after my Dad's funeral. My precious mom.|
I'm so sorry for your loss - what beautiful pictures! And how lucky for you to have her for so long. Hugs to you.ReplyDelete
