Life and Love… Our Mother


On a fine Sunday afternoon in March we all gathered together to celebrate my mom’s eighty third birthday, she is the young looking lady surrounded by a few of her grandchildren and a few great grandchildren and a wonderful time was had by all. My mom was bright and energetic and when I picked up for the party I could not keep up to her…

It was rather sudden and unexpected that the very next day my mom was admitted to the hospital suffering from abdominal pains that we discovered stemmed from pancreatic and kidney failure and she made it very clear that if this was untreatable that we not take any heroic measures.

She left us with peace and grace on March 26th.
