My Mother...

Hi Friends,

Please continue to keep me and my family in thought
and prayer during this very difficult time.  My dear
sweet Mother passed away early this morning.  She
wasn't in the best of health due to COPD and CHF.
Her breathing was getting more difficult.  But, we
thought we'd have more time with her.  Of course, one
never knows.  I have comfort in knowing that we
visited her often and always told her how much we
loved her.  I often made cards for her and she would
display them on her shelves.  She gave to me the love
of sewing, arts and crafts.  She loved flowers and
knew them very well.  My oldest sister, Donna, has
the wonderful gift of making floral arrangements.
My Mom loved playing bingo.  A couple years ago
I gave her a bingo coin purse to keep her bingo money
in.  I will now treasure that little coin purse.  She
loved children and animals.  And, she has many grandchildren/great grandchildren.  My
heart aches over the recent loss of my brother and
now my dear Mother.  Thank you very much for
keeping me in thought and prayer!  Take care, hugs!


  1. Oh! Maria, my heart aches for you and your family. First your brother and now your lovely mom...Bless her. I am so very sorry. Please know that I will be thinking of you at this sad time in your life.
    I lost my mom a few years ago, and I have so many wonderful memories of how she, like your mom, taught me so much.
    Your memories will never fade. Sending warm ((hugs)) xx
