My mom passed away
« on: August 10, 2007, 10:21:12 PM »
 :'( :'(   Last night at 12:35 a.m., my mom passed away.  All her children were around her and so was my father.  (They were married 58 years).  She didn't suffer at all (thank God for Hospice).   Her breathing just slowed down, then it was sporadic, then it quit.  The funeral home didn't pick her up until 3:00 a.m., so I got to spend some extra time with her, kissing her and talking to her.  I know she is in a better place, but this is ripping my heart out. 
    Anyway, I had posted earlier about her illness, and I just wanted to let you all know she died last night.

Oh goodness, Betty!  I am SO sorry.  I'm glad that she went peacefully, that will give you some comfort, I know.  And your parents were married 58 years?  That is so nice to hear.  True Love.

Betty, I remember your earlier posting. Condolences to you and your family members. It is nice to read you were all in attendance and that you had some afterdeath moments with her. Some claim the soul lingers around for awhile after separation from the body. She must have felt comforted.

Betty,  Your Mother must have been so proud to have her family by her side as she made that last step here in this world.  I am certain She knew you all were there in those last hours.   How beatiful to be "so there" for your Mom.  Surounded by what was closest to Her, the family.   Its not the end of anything...  Its just beginning for Her...
