Posted Too Soon

 At 10 pm, Oct. 15th, Bill and I were called up to Rockwood Terrace. Mom passed peacefully with a few nurses standing over her two minutes before we arrived. I didn't want to amend my earlier post, this deserved to be all on its own.



Mom's family, children, spouses, 18 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren will all miss her presence. I'm glad I got a late afternoon visit with her and held her hand. Secretly, maybe she was just waiting for us to 'leave her alone' so she could take the trip. 😁

We love you Mom. Safe travels and say hello to Daddy and Bruce!

  11. You can tell your Mom was a special lady by just looking at those daughters she raised. You can tell she was loved and honored. A family unit like this is not common anymore. When I read your sister's weekend posts it warmed my heart and made me sad at the same time. Take care Patsy. Kelly

  26. I am so sorry. Even when it’s expected, it can still pack quite a gut punch.
    I must say though,as a woman who only has brothers, that I marvel at how you & your sisters lined up & worked like a team to keep watch over her passing & spend her last days together as a family. That’s something for you all to step back & cherish, because the bonds you girls share with each other today are the ones that she nurtured - they may be your Mom’s enduring & most valuable legacy to each of you & I suspect she trusted they'd bring you much comfort now. ❤
