RIP Cora 11/19/13

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Got a call last night our time around 8:30am from Cora's son Marcus that she had past away peacefully. I had wanted to fly out but the earliest flights that I could get on were going through Chicago late Monday or early Tuesday and because of the storm, I would be delayed. As it was my doctor didn't want me to fly because I have been having troubles with my bp and blood thinners. I posted a newer picture of her that I shared from her husbands fb page.

Today was not an easy day for me. I did manage to go shopping but I didn't sleep too well last night and today was a low energy day. I talked to Jim earlier, he was making dinner, saying he couldn't believe she would never be sitting at the table with him again. Then he broke down crying. Jim could only talk for a few mins. before he had to hand the phone over to Marcus. I just made a donation in her name and they will send the family a card. That is what Jim asked and I know that is what Cora would have wanted.

Cora was a funny little gal. If you asked her "A penny for your thoughts", she would say "Hell a penny, isn't is up to a dime yet, I am not that cheap". And then she would laugh. Yesterday while out walking, at almost the same place I found $5 a while back(which I told her about). I saw but did not pick up a bright shinny new dime. I knew it was from her, just knew it, got chills up my spine. Walked past and almost went back, but something stopped me, I knew she wanted me to leave it there for someone else to find. I least that's my story and I am sticking to it.

Dinner's almost ready so "Peace out" everyone.

    I am so sorry for your loss. But finding the dime was a sign from her and her way of telling you that she's fine, which is quite amazing.

    Sorry for your loss, may the peace of knowing that she is no longer suffering bring you some comfort. She is with our Lord now and watching over you.

    Oh Teri! I am so, so, so very sorry for your loss! I'm sure your precious friend, Cora, sent you that dime! She wanted to let you know that she is at peace, in no pain and feeling fine once again! I would've loved to have gotten a sign like that from my Mom! I'm glad she had a peaceful crossing. Prayers of peace and courage going out to you and her family! Sending you big warm hugs!

    I believe the dime was a sign from her. She wants you to know she's okay and very comfortable. I am so sorry for your loss, Teri. Sending prayers to you and to Cora's family for peace and healing of the soul.
