Good bye mom
Saturday, March 07, 2020
It is with a very heavy heart that I must report my mom passed away Thursday evening. She took her last breath at approximately 5:17. Her last couple of days were very hard, as she was unresponsive. Hospice was wonderful for the short time they were involved and all of their services were comforting to both mom and the rest of us.
Some pictures of my mom and her favorite things.
