A Sad Day For me

Last Monday night I received one of the worst phone calls I will ever want to receive.  It was the call that my mother was unresponsive and on her way to the hospital.  All I could do was wait to find out what was going on.  I soon found out that my mother was no longer with us, but had passed on.  I had just talked to her 2 hours before.  We laughed and talked and at the end said I love you.  I will hold on to those words for as long as I live, as I will hold on to the memory of the wonderful person she was.

It has been a rough week, but I am now back home in Kentucky and arrangements are all made.  Monday March 10th will be the last time I ever see my mother’s physical body.  That is the day they will lay her to rest.  I feel her presence and know parts of her will always live on in me and the rest of the family that she loved so much.

Of course I haven’t been blogging in the last few days.  I know she will want me to continue living and experiencing life to the fullest, so after I deal with the emotions, the “what ifs”   and one of the hardest days I believe I will have to ever face,  I will be posting more.  If you would like to read more about my mother you can see her obituary and celebration page here:



RIP my beautiful Mommy!

    Oh my gosh I am so sorry. I can’t imagine and I don’t want to imagine what you are going through. I dread the day – I can’t even say it. I have lost many dear people in my life including my Dad but the loss of my Mom ? Would be too hard to endure.

    I know there are no words no soothe your heart. My prayers are with you.

  • Thank you so much Darlene, it has really been a tough week. I think it is really going to hit 2 weeks from now when I go to pick up the phone and realize I can’t call her anymore. I know death is something we all must face, but nobody is ever really ready for it. I am just holding on to the good memories and leaning on the support of family and friends. Thank you for your kind words.
