My 451st Post - Bad News

I just wanted to take a moment here. My mother passed away yesterday at 2:30 p.m. She was at home and surrounded by me and my sisters. It was a very peaceful passing, and now she is back together with Dad where she most wanted to be. I will be offline for a while, but I'll return soon. Love to all.

I'm glad you were able to go home when you did. The fact that your Mom had her smiling children around her made it that much more peaceful for her, I'm sure.

Time will be your best friend now, as you and your family will need that time to adjust to life without her.

Her memory will live on forever in your hearts and that will bring you comfort in the future.

God Bless you and your family.

Ms. Ann: Please accept my deepest sympathies for the passing of your mother. I wish I had words to tell you how deeply sad I am for you and your family at this time. She was surrounded by love in her time of need and no one can ask for more then that.

God bless you and your mother.

I know I've already told you in person how sorry I am about your mom's passing, but I figured it couldn't hurt to put it in writing too. You are blessed to have so many people out there offering such kind words.

I'm glad I was here and had the opportunity to help support you.
