    Mom is at peace

    Mom passed away gently early this morning. She was more than ready to walk with Jesus and to rejoin my dad and family. I got the call at 2:50 am, and was at her place shortly afterwards. I had said my goodbyes on Sunday as I spent a quiet afternoon playing her favorite music. She did not suffer much longer after she started receiving palliative care on Friday,

    I spent the day clearing the remainder of her room. Most of her items were donated to the home for use by other residents. I cancelled cable, phone & contacted funeral home. My daughter came by after the kids were in school, and we loaded personal items. We came home, and the workers were almost done installing the glass doors for our shower. Check that off the list. Next vanity, counter, sink & faucet - hopefully this week. We went for a nice lunch and discussed options for funeral. One thing was an easy pick -- her service and visitation will be on December 8 -- mom was very religious and that is the date of the Immaculate Conception, and 3 months after her birthday, Sept 8 - Virgin Mary.

    The date also gives me and family time to regroup and prepare for that day. Tomorrow I will meet with the funeral home to review arrangements. I have drafted obit, which my daughter will review. I did find a few pictures that I want to use or have printed. Mom & dad -- waving us goodbye (I think they were leaving for Portugal & Spain). It's goodbye, until we are all together again.

    Bathroom is scheduled to be worked on this week.
    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Suzanne, you have my deepest sympathy. It sounds like your mom was ready to meet Jesus. I love that her birthday was the Feast of the Virgin Mary and she will be buried on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. The picture of your mom and dad is just perfect. They are so cute.

    I hope your bathroom project is complete soon. You have enough to deal with, the workers need to have mercy on you and get it done.

          So sorry to hear this, and yet so happy to know she is at peace and with family and friends. Our Lord knows when the time is right and calls us then. My prayers are with you and family. It's hard to lose your mother. Mine passed more than 30 years ago.

                            Suzanne, you have my deepest sympathy at the loss of your mom. So glad she will be with dad, walking through the Pearly Gates hand and hand together once again. I realize the significance of the dates of her birthday and funeral Mass being celebrations in the Catholic Church of important feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary, what a wonderful coincidence. I hope this gentle passing, however difficult for you to lose your mom, can bring you peace in knowing that you cared for her in the most beautiful way.
