My mom died today [View all]

She was 95 so she lived a long life and she was lucky lived mostly on her own, last 4 years in a senior apt that did meals and cleaning but no medical. She even went to a pumkin patch few weeks ago with my daughter and great grandkids. She told me she was tired last few days felt off but I wasn't super worried as she has pulled through many illnesses.

Her friends noticed she wasn't at lunch so did a check on her, I knew she was eating in apt because I sent her microwave soup.

My first reaction was but I didn't get to say goodbye I am not ready, crazy considering her age but I heard its a common reaction.

My mom use to drive me batty but the last few years all that was gone and healed which I am very glad for.

Live in peace mom forever!
