My mother died peacefully Tuesday, May 19, 2009, in the presence of some of her family. We were fortunate to have had a lovely Mother’s Day with her. We had given her a digital camera which she was so very excited about learning to use. Her grand-daughter Krystal showed her the basics while we ate lunch together. She promptly took some photos at the restaurant table. The next morning she was trying to take photos of birds at her bird feeder when she had her heart attack.
This past week while attending her “deathbed” at the hospital, family and friends came and went, sharing wonderful stories about her and us. It was a time of grieving, but also of celebration of her life. We have continued to try to do so as we have gone through the steps of planning the funeral. We are so very grateful to all our extended family, friends, co-workers, etc who have held us in their thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
