My Beloved Mother

I've been away from Blogland all through June because my dear mother,who suffered with Alzheimer's for 17 years passed away on June 27th after being bedridden for the past two months.I know she is now resting in peace and it is a great comfort to us that she is in heaven with my two sisters and my brother who all died in childhood.
She was the strongest person I have ever known and I loved her with all my heart.I'm used to missing her because I've been doing so all these years.




PS: We buried my mother in my Easter suit . We wanted her to look like she was going to church on Sunday and this suit seemed to fit the bill. She looked really nice in it with pearls at her neck and a pearl rosary.

My thoughts and prayers are with you...I lost my Mom almost 10 years ago and I still catch myself "talking" to her.

My heart goes out to you. I'll bet she looked beautiful in your Easter suit. I lost my Mom in 2001 and I continue to miss her, but I am thankful I had her as long as I did; she was 82.

Diana,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. We experienced the same slow decline with my father-in-law. It is a blessing to have the suffering over, but so sad for those of us left behind.
