My Mother 1926-2012
My beautiful mother passed away late last month and has now joined my father. We were able to bury her on what would have been my parents' 63rd wedding anniversary. My brother, sister, and I are convinced that my dad had a hand in the timing. My father was not a patient man. :-) It gives us much comfort to know that our parents would never spend a single anniversary apart.
As a child, no matter your age, you never truly believe that your parents will leave you but then one day they do. The sadness is indescribable. That's why I want to thank the online community for all the support that I've received this past year, especially following my father's death. I've received so many kind notes and words of encouragement. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Hold your parents close. Value and appreciate the time you can spend together. I'd give just about anything for one more minute with my mom and my dad.
