Mom, dressed for her first date with Dad!
When someone so close to us and whom we love so much is near the end, we feel their pain as they age and we would do whatever we could to see the Mom (or other loved one) as we remember them . . . even one more time. This week marks another anniversary of her passing. She felt no pain in passing while asleep and just didn’t awaken this side of heaven. She died holding hands with Jesus with a big smile on her face, just like my Grampy did. If your morning quiet place seems to have a larger angel choir, that’s Mom. No matter how many things she could no longer do toward the end, she was always singing and I am sure she still is! Likely, the angels in your life are singing with her!
The last thing she and I said to each other was to smile and say “I love you!” it was a sunny spring afternoon and the birds were singing!
