Thank you so much everyone.
I just had a chance to log on and it feels like a warm and comfortable blanket to see you here with such good thoughts.
My mom wanted to die in her home. She was going to do it her way up to the end. LOL. Today she was in her home with 2 of her daughters.
My siblings and husband are all gathering to mourn and grieve with lots of tears and even more laughter and stories.
Thank you again, my board friends.
I'm so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a very strong lady. I'm glad she was in her home when it happened as she had wanted. Your family, including your mom have been in my daily prayers. I'm glad you are able to share laughter and stories at this time among the tears. Gentle hugs.
I just saw this. I am so sorry to hear about your mom but glad that she did it on her own terms. You are a special person; I still remember the time you called and spent over an hour on the phone with me because it was obvious from my posts that my life was spiraling out of control. Your kindness really helped me and I have never forgotten it. I hope that you and your family gain strength from your mom's life and draw together.
Fran, words offer little solace at a time like this, but know that your friends here are keeping you and your family in their thoughts today and in the days and weeks ahead. May your mother's memory be a blessing. Sending many gentle hugs to you across the miles.
