Rest in Peace...

At approximetely 4:45 p.m. CST, my Mom passed away with my Dad and one of my sisters by her side. When my phone rang minutes ago and I saw it was my other sister calling, I braced myself for the news. The inevitable has happened.

My mother passed on her own terms. With only 3 months advance notice, she never once wavered in her strength and never pitied herself. She was always concerned about how the rest of us were doing, in the face of what she was going thru. She didn't fear death and was ready to go when the time came.

Our last conversation, she expressed her last wishes for me, told me that everything would be ok and that she love me. I'm happy of our last goodbye...

My deepest sympathy to you my friend. I can't imagine the loss you must be feeling. Be strong and keep the memories of your mother alive.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Ted,
I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. We know she is in a better place but that doesn't make it easier on us. I loved your posts about your mother...so moving. My heart goes out to you and Dara.

Heartfelt sympathy to you Ted. I can only say that the words you have expressed about your mum in recent times have been uplifting and dignified. Clearly, much pride has passed between you and will continue to for all eternity.
