    Mom passed away this AM at 8:13. Both my brother and I were with her. We had went to the store and bought her spring flowers and cat food for her furry companion and sorce of comfort. Though she was comatose since Friday night, we described the flowers to her (told not to worry we spent too much) and told her what kind of food we got for her cat. She passed about two min. later while Joe and I set her with words of encouragement and praise to our Heavenly Father. Though we may not see her for 40 years, give or take, it's nothing compared to eternity. Members of this forum and CR have been a source of comfort, strength and support. Though most of us will not meet F2F, you are important. Thank you.

          So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She is now with our Lord and smiling down on you and your brother. May the Lord bring peace to your hearts.
            I'm glad she is at peace now, and that she had you for a son.

                            I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.

                              Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

                                Steve. Sorry to hear of you loss. You & Your family are in my thoughts & prayers. Vicki
