Holding you and your mom close. I'm glad you feel at peace but I understand how hard this part of the journey is.

Oh NIK, I am soooo terribly sorry. I lost my Mom on Mother's Day (of ALL days ) this year. Even when you know their time is near, it is still heartbreaking. I was also there and held my Mom's hand. All you can do is to let her know you love her and are with her.

I vividly remember sitting at my own mother's bedside and saying goodbye. It was heartbreaking. I still miss her

holding you close in my heart NIK
From time to time, I do consider that I might be mad. Like any self-respecting lunatic, however, I am always quick to dismiss any doubts about my sanity. DK

Keeping you and your family in my thoughts.
Me: BH - Happily remarried.
Hope is never lost. It exists within you - it is real. It is not a force in and of itself - it is something that you create with every thought, action, and choice you make. It is a gift that you create for yourself.
