From a call this morning from my sister I learned my mother passed away quietly last night July 4th at about 8:30pm. The odd thing is I knew it had happened, at about that time last night I heard music that just wouldn't get out of my head, it lasted for several minutes and I remember thinking 'I think Mom just passed'. She did.
She was ready, and we talked about this a number of times after Dad's passing last year. She was ready to go, and to certain extent I'm happy that she was largely able to do what she wanted, when she wanted, and the way she wanted to the end. Very sad that she is gone, but immensely proud and happy for the 54 years I was able to know and love her.
Mom, Dad us kids and spouses.
Mom earlier this year with her 'granddog' Blossom, who she looked forward to seeing and spending time with.
