It didn’t happen the way I envisioned.
I was watching the Arizona vs UConn game – not that I really care about basketball or March Madness – but that is what I was doing when I received a phone call. Not from the hospice nurse whom I thought would call, but from the home health care provider.

Mom passed away quietly in her sleep around 6:40PM. I did not fully believe it until the hospice worker officially proclaimed her death at 7:15.
It all seems so very surreal right now and yet….I am so thankful that I know she is finally at peace – rejoicing with the angels and being reunited with my dad – something that she has envisioned for over 5 and half years now.
Mom – you will be missed but I take comfort in knowing that I will see you again. Save me a mansion next to yours, ok?
