MOM

My dear sweet mom passed away September 16th and now is in a better place with my dad and her beloved Tommy! She will be deeply missed and fondly and lovingly remembered.







It's been a long summer with many long stays in Pennsylvania with mom, my brother and sister in law. We all worked together and made mom's time as peaceful and loving as possible. Her first stroke was June 10, which left her paralyzed on her right side and her second massive stroke was on September 10th. Hospice is such a wonderful organization. I can't say enough about them.


I'm home now and have so much love in my heart for my mom, I will be carrying this with me until my time.

I've missed all my friends I've made on my blog and I hope to continue to make more. I look forward to catching up on everyone else's blogs and life.

Thanks for visiting as always and I'll be back soon.

  7. dear Robin....I'm sad to hear of your mother's passing. It is hard I know but at least you were able to spend some time with her and made her last days with you and your family happy ones. I am sure all that loving made it easier for her. I am sending you the strongest vibes possible across the pond which I sincerely hope will ease these difficult moments for you.
    keep well :-)
