Last week my dear Mother passed away. She was a lovely lady with a quick wit. Because she lived in the same town as me, and my siblings all live far far away, I had the privilege of spending lots of time with her and getting to know her as a person and not just as my Mother. She had dementia, so there were times I wasn't sure she knew me, but she was almost always sweet and funny. It is a bittersweet passing because she was ready to go and it was time, but she made such a difference in her world that she will be greatly missed.

You are very lucky to have had such a mum. Always cherish that.

It is always hard to say a final good-bye to those we love - even when we know the time is right ...
Allow yourself to enjoy the memories that will bubble to the surface and hug your family.
Thinking of you

Oh my, Rach. What a dear sweet woman she was. My dh just said, "The passing of an era." I'm so glad she was in my life for a brief time while I was in Seward. Thank you for that. God give you His peace.
