And now it's over


My mother passed away peacefully with a soft sigh early in the morning of April 20, holding my hand, as we both wished.

Since then, I've been absorbed with all the goings on that are necessary to close out the business end of someone's life. Today was the final part - cleaning out her apartment and turning in the keys.

I will miss her dearly.

Your mother was beautiful! I am so happy you could be with her to the end. I was with my dad in the same way. It meant SO MUCH to be able to walk that journey with him. My prayers and hugs go out to you.

I am so sorry, Sharon, it's a huge loss. My thoughts are with you. Being with your mum when she went must have been so special, I missed out on that with my own mum. I really treasure having met you at MQS, and I know what a caring and wonderful person you are. Your mother must have been so proud of you.
