    Not the Best Christmas I've Had!

    Got the call at 2 AM this morning, my 93 year old mother had passed. Not unexpected, but no more sleep this morning! She had health problems for more than a year & went to a nursing home for rehab the sumer before last. She decided on her own she should stay there so we sold things she didn't need a year ago. By her Drs. advice, she went on Hospice last summer & got along fairly well until a couple weeks ago when she started declining rapidly.

    She had told us numerous times "I've had a good life" & told a Hospice nurse last week she was "ready to go". My brother & his family saw her Tuesday and my wife & I and her two remaining sisters were there yesterday.

    No more suffering for her!

    Sorry for your loss. It sounds like your mother had made her peace with all and went with the knowledge that family was close.

    It can be sad when someone passes during the holiday season but you can always add a celebration of her life on top of the other "holidays" too.

    Best wishes to you and your family!

    I feel you and I am sorry for your loss. Christmas is a time of giving, she gave you the gift of comfort in knowing that she is comfortable now.

    I know what you have to do now. I am sorry that it is on Christmas.
