Mom earned her Angel Wings yesterday

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

Early yesterday morning, my brother was outside with the dog, and saw a shooting star. About 20 miles away, my mom took her last breath and peacefully passed away.

We spent the morning with my dad, making arrangements and saying goodbye to my mom. There were lots of phone calls to make to friends and family, and thank goodness I was prepared with a list of who needed to be called, and who could pass information on to others.

It's sad to say I'm glad it's over. I will miss my mom. Her quality of life over the past few years hasn't been very good, so I'm happy that she is again able to do what she wants to do when she wants to do it. Dancing was one of her favorite things as a young woman. In the last 15 years, she didn't walk steadily, so there wasn't any dancing for her, other than in her mind.

My mom was a Girl Scout Leader, and very involved in the church. Lots of people are sharing good memories of her with our family. It's nice to listen to and see their memories on Facebook.

    What a beautiful memory though of that shooting star. I understand fully the feeling of "it's sad to say I'm glad..." as I felt guilty for a time when I had that thought after my mom passed. She died of a brain tumor and the wait for her body to just finish shutting down was what caused that thought. Anyway, prayers for you as you go through the next steps and the memories that will cause tears unexpectedly.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. My dad was working on a "party list" for their 60th wedding anniversary when he passed away from cancer. My mom used it as the contact list for his funeral. Dad tried really hard to make it to their 60th, but it wasn't to be. I am glad your mom is no longer sad and in pain. It will be hard to live without her, but it sounds like she was a wonderful woman and you'll have good memories of the special woman she was. Take care.
