I lost my Mother 10/26/06

imabestNovember 3, 2006

My Mother passed away Oct 26 and it was a sad day but yet joyful.

She is a peace now with the Lord and free of any kind of pain.

She broke her hip in Aug and later had a bad staph infection in that hip.

She would have to have had 3 surgeries to try and fix the problem.

I know she would not have wanted to go Thur that so I asked that they just keep her pain free and let her go in peace...

Which she did.

I want to thank each one of you who has helped me Thur the last 7 years of care giving and all your good advice and hugs.

I could not have done without you all.

And it is like you say after you loose your loved one there is a peace at knowing what you did for them.

Thank you all for the love and care you have shared with me

When I first began posting on this forum about Mum you were one of the first voices to offer consolation and help of a most practical nature.

I'm sorry your mother is now gone. But I think you made a wise, kind, and selfless choice on your mother's behalf.

Nothing I can offer will lessen the loss one iota. But maybe knowing you offered me great practical information when I needed it most will help a little bit. And serve as a wonderful, loving testimony to how much you loved your mother.

I'm sorry for your loss, understand whatever relief you may feel, and want you to know what a contribution you and your Mom made to my life and Mum's!

Kathy, I am so sorry for your loss. I, too, remember how caring you were to me when I began posting here about my dear mother (who has been gone now over 2 years -- hard to believe). I think you made the most compassionate and loving choice you could have made. God bless you.
