Rosie Posted August 31, 2004 Share Posted August 31, 2004 Hello everyone, I haven't posted in a very, very long time. Please know that my sister and I do keep up with you all even though we don't post all the time. You are in our thoughts and prayers all the time. I wanted to let you know that our mom passed away on August 19th at 7:45 AM. It has been a long difficult road. Last winter when I started posting here, I came with unanswerable questions. I am so thankful for your patience, love and support. It was obvious that even though my questions were very difficult, everyone understood and tried to help me the best that they could. I hesitated about posting this update, mainly, because so many wonderful people have passed recently and I didn't want to add to the pain of those working through this right now. I want to say that I don't think it is hopeless. Hang on... and fight. Our mom fought for a long time and with all her might. She fought to the very end. My sister made the statement at the funeral that, "Mom did not lose her battle to cancer" and I have to agree with her. She may not have survived, but she did not lose. She was a fighter that is now in heaven. I had the privledge of staying with my mom and sister for 5 weeks before she died. (I live in TX and they are in OH.) This time was a precious, precious gift. We saw our mom live for the first time in her life. She did not worry over the little things in life. She enjoyed it to the fullest... and I mean, to the fullest! Mom had always been a drinker who kept us at arm's length. That arm was taken down and wrapped around us with awesome hugs. We have never laughed so hard in our lives. We also cried together, but there was so much laughter. I never realized what an amazing sense of humor my mother had. It is something that will stay with me forever. Anyway, God bless and love to you all. Tammy (a.k.a. Rosie) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
