On Saturday while the blizzard was raging in Maine, my sister who had been in NY with my parents, along with her husband called to say that my mother who has been ill for a very long time, was failing rapidly and that I needed to get to NY. We were unable to leave until Sunday morning due to weather conditions, but after experiencing car troubles and losing about two hours of what should have been travel time,we arrived at my parents' home at 9 Sunday night. Although she was not conscious, I believe she knew that all her children were there with her. She died early Monday afternoon. The funeral was yesterday. My parents celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary last August. That is not typo, my father is devastated, which is an understatement. I am too sad to think of much else, especially my eating. Today is my weigh in day, but don't have my scale, it will have wait until I am home, though I do not know when that will be. I will be back to SP full force then.
