It is with great sadness that I have to let you all know that my beautiful, courageous mother stepped across the threshold and returned to her Heavenly home yesterday morning. She is now free from all the pains and troubles which attended her over these past 5 1/2 years. Reunited with her parents and two sisters, and whole again, she is now dancing across the heavens, her blue eyes twinkling as they always did. Thankfully my sister arrived at the hospital in time to hold her hand while she took the journey from this life on into the next.
I loved my mother very much, as we all did, and we will all miss her presence here. I know in my heart that she is in a better place and I am so very grateful that I was priviledged enough to have had her as my mother. She taught me all I know about what it is to be good, and kind, and loyal and brave. She set a wonderful example for me in all ways. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your prayers and kindnesses over these past weeks. We felt them and were so very grateful for them. God speed my dear sweet mother, until we meet again.
