We will be away for a few days

Mom here. We will be away for the rest of the week. My Mom answered the Lords call today and went home to join my Dad. She had been sick in January but had improved. Wednesday morning after breakfast she and my sister were joking and laughing. Then Mom sat up and informed my sister that she was going. She passed peacefully holding my sister and brother-in-laws hands. She would have been 89 in one month.

I am forever grateful for my sister. She has dedicated the last couple of years to our mother. She lived in a trailer on the back of Mom's yard until January when they moved into the house with her. My sister was a nurse and had all the training and dedication to care for our mother.

I usually do not put family pictures on my blog. But this is a special Mothers Day gift to my Mom. This picture was taken in 1950.



I will be reading your blogs as time permits just because they keep my mind busy. I will not take time to comment unless something really speaks to me.

We will see you next week.

Angle and Kirby will be looked after till I get home.

I am very sorry for your loss. It seems as if your mother was fortunate enough to pass with loved ones around her, and in some comfort. That alone is a blessing.

I know this will be a difficult time for whole family, but it is also a time to celebrate her life and all the wonderful contributions she made.

She'll be with you always in your heart and spirit.
