This is in memory of my sweet mother Margaret, who passed away this evening. Her passing came as no surprise as she has been slowly dying for a while now. It was painful to know that she lay in a nursing home literally starving as she couldn’t keep anything down anymore. I saw her last Sat. for the last time to let her know that her great grand son had arrived into the world and was perfect and healthy. I believe she was waiting to hear this before leaving us.
Her 89 years on this earth were very productive ones. She was a role model as a mom, she never worked, was always home for us as kids and had a warm, nutritious meal on the table every night. We sat around the table and said grace before every meal and we discussed our days with one another. I thank my mom for instilling these qualities in me early on.
To me, she was a perfect mom and I always told her that God must’ve loved me very much to give her to me for my mom.
I love you mom and I know you are free now and out of pain. Say hello to everyone for me, until we meet again, love in Christ, your daughter #3.
