At Peace

Mom passed away this morning at 7 am. She had been hospitalized for a week and then came home with Hospice last Thursday (9-6-07). She was surrounded by family members continuously while she was at home.

We are going tomorrow to plan her memorial. She will be cremated as per her wishes. DH will be flying here on Tuesday.

Thank you everyone for your messages of love and support during this extremely difficult time.

She is no longer imprisoned in a body that failed her, she is no longer suffering. I am thankful for that.

Peace.

Oh Missy, I am so, so sorry to read this...I'm also crying as I'm typing.

I've been thinking about you and your mom ever since your last post and wanted to send an e-mail of support, but didn't want to bother you right now.

You and your family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.
