The waiting is over

My Mother died just after 11pm on Friday night.
I am sad I will not see her again, but glad that the last few months are now over.
She had a wonderful life, and was just a few weeks short of her 98th Birthday.
The last few days were absolutely horrible both for her and us.
I can now remember her as the vibrant elegant woman she was, not what she had become through no fault of her own.
I am all for euthanasia after this.
We will celebrate her life later in October I think, if it ever stops raining and we can get onto the area she wanted her ashes scattered.
I am sorting clothes and the few bits and pieces that she had left.

My sincere condolences on the passing of your mum. Such a difficult time and yet to sit and watch a once vibrant lady become a mere shadow of herself, could not be any easier.
Your memories together of better days, will indeed keep her with you until the day you meet again.
{Hugs} my friend,

Oh my goodness, it happened so fast...I am sorry Penny. I was thinking about you all day yesterday and realizing what a sorrow it would be to lose your mother. I was thinking that I hoped you would be able to spend time with her. I am sending you love over the ocean still, and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
