We lost my mom this morning. It was relatively quick and painless and thank heavens she was at my sister's place so she was not alone. She was 80 years old and kept telling us she was ready to go. We knew what the time was getting close when she said she was tired of travelling; you could have knocked us over with a feather when we heard her say that!
beating-heart Deborah, I am so very very sorry for your loss. This seems to be sudden to me since you've been so busy with her all summer. Well, I am glad she wasn't alone and that all is well with everyone. I will send prayers and best wishes for all in the family and for your mother on her journey to heaven. God bless you, Sue

Dear Deborah - I remember so fondly your narratives of the "mother and daughter" outings you two shared. I remember being so envious of the opera simulcasts you attended. How fortunate you and your family were to be able to remain as close. Keeping you close in thoughts and prayers.
Deb., I am so very sorry to hear this, you and your mom had some wonderful times together. It seems sudden to me/us but I seem to remember that she was refusing treatments, so had already made up her mind that she was ready to leave. My prayers for you and your family, I am glad she wasn't home alone when she passed. May she rest easy now, and may you and your family find solace in each other and your memories. Take Care Hun.
