Good Morning all,

After one very long, exhausting week of holding a bedside ritual watching my Mom decline rapidly, she passed away Friday morning. Sadly, we were on our way but not with her. I'm ok with that considering her last few moments. She is in heaven and feeling no pain or suffering. All five of us kids are here and re-connecting. It has been really good for us to all be together. We have family flying in for the service Tuesday so it will be equally as busy as last week but in a good way. We are having a local service and then in June we are taking her ashes to upper Michigan for a service there and will intern her with her sister.

Wanted to update you since this forum is one of the few places that I feel comfortable enough to pass on such personal information. You all have my heart and thoughts all the time and I miss being here regularly, but life does happen and we have to roll with it.

Love and hugs,
Carolyn

I am so glad you have us to confide in and let out some of your grief and sorrow. Spring will be a wonderful time to spend with the Lord in heaven and she will look down on her family and watch them blossom as they reconnect.
