MAy 18th Remembrance

Mom passed on May 18th 2009 in my home, in my daughter’s bed right after my husband returned from work at 3:10.  Although she had her eyes closed and seemed asleep the Hospice Nurses said she could hear us.  I sang songs she liked for the three days prior, and held her hand till the end. I knew when her soul flew away.  We all told her it was ok to let go all day, but she waited for Bob.  He took his walk right after and told me as he went up the hill a bird flew right by his head, Mom?

Those last weeks he was more my hero than ever before.  He would carry and lift her into bed, cleaned up after the “accidents”. He had built the ramp that helped us bring her here month’s before.

Each May I reflect on all these things again, the last time we sat on the back deck and she admired “her tree”.  The last time we ate an ice cream cone together. I still wonder if i really did enough to keep her here,although i believe in a power greater than myself that makes those decisions for i am not so important.  Some people say the tears never end,and i am sure this is true . I will keep her memory safe in my heart until May comes again.Image



  1. Your reflection is beautiful. I am sorry for your loss. I realize these thoughts are anchored in a distinct faith but I wonder if it’ll speak to you. God bless you in the days ahead:

  2. Thank you for your comments and blessing

  3. So sorry 😦
