Mom is now gone

My mom passed away in her sleep very unexpectedly last night. She was staying with me and we had a very happy last afternoon and evening together. Family is arriving and I'm picking up my sis in Tampa late tonight. Many more on the way. I'm terribly sad but know she had a very happy, long life and a pain free death. Will be back when I can.

I'm so, so sorry to hear this Jean, but what a blessing that she went in her sleep. That's the best that any of us can hope for. Thinking of you

Thank you Marsha. I'm really on my own now, losing my husband of 45 years and my mom has been quite a jolt. I'm feeling very much alone. But, I am not despondent or depressed. Just wandering a bit, looking for my way again. I plan ahead so as to have things to look forward to.

Thanks so much, Sharon! I was really resting once my sisters left the condo. I don't think I even got online.

Thank you so, so much. Yesterday was my birthday and it was so sad not to have her here. The first year of "events" and holidays is always hard. Glad to hear from you!
