hollyanne Posted January 15, 2006 Share Posted January 15, 2006 It has been one week since my mom left. The memorial service was so beautiful, we had over 350 people -- it was one of the most uplifting experiences in my life, as painful as it was. She was such a woman of great faith and wasn't shy to show it --- that so clearly came through at the service. For all you caregivers, you are truly doing God's work -- you have been recruited! I can honestly say that as painful and terrifying as the last five months have been, I am honored to have been able to take care of my mom -- it was a privilege. Yet, I miss her so much that some of the hours are unbearable.....but I know we gave her the best care possible and that she was peace. I want to thank everyone for all the prayers (please keep praying, especially for my dad) and the support. I don't think I could have gotten through her illness, the birth of Caroline or any of this without this board. I made a committment to my mom to stay dedicated to those who come to this board for comfort and support...so I am not going anywhere. I will post my mom's obituary and some thoughts on her final days under grieving. All my love and thanks, Holly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
