I came home last week to see my mom, who has been ill. She died Thursday evening, about a half hour after my brother and I left the nursing home. I am sad that she is gone from our daily lives, but happy that she is at peace and the suffering is over. She is in the care of the Lord now, and everything is all right. Arrangements have been made and now that the "busyness" following a death is over, we can get some rest.
I am very grateful to the staff of the nursing home, who took excellent care of my mom, and to the hospice nurses and social worker, who answered my many questions. I also wish to thank my SL friends for the support given.
There are still odds and ends to finish up. I am grateful for the time we had with my mom. Wish it could have been longer, but I guess she had finished her work here, and it was time for her to rest. She will always be with us.
