Late Wednesday evening, my Mother passed away after a long illness.  She was 75 years old.  These past two days have been days of confusion, stress, agony, and a few laughs.  After taking care of her and my Dad for the last five years, NOT having to give care to another has been the hardest thing to adjust to . . . that and the constant knowledge that I will never talk to her again.  But, she is in a better place, to be sure.  And if there is a heaven, then I know this morning she was sitting on a back-porch, overlooking a tree-lined lake, drinking coffee with my Dad . . .

Rest in peace, Mom.

Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine:
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
In memoria æterna erit iustus,
ab auditione mala non timebit.
