Got an email from my sister on Monday morning that Mom had really taken a turn for the worst. I drove to the Bay Area, and got there about 3:00 pm, and she was in an agitated state so the hospice nurse started the morphine.
She is now at peace, and sitting with my Dad whom she missed so much since his passing two years ago. We were fortunate to have both my parents with us for such a long time; Mom was going to be 85, and Dad was 86. And, the most amazing parents ever!

Thanks Kitt for your kind words. She definitely is an angel. Her last words were "thank you" to the nurses.

Thank you Judy; she definitely was loved and the four children she brought into this world were with her when she left. She and my father left a legacy of a huge loving family.

Hello Carol .....
   I guess it was good that it seemed to be fairly quick. It does seem that you are at peace with your Mom now being able to be with your Dad.
Bless you.

Lonie, I am so sorry to hear about you Mom. It's so difficult to lose your parents. She is now happy and healthy and with loved ones. She does sound like she was an amazing woman. I'm sure you have many cherished memories.

I love HealingWell for the precious people that come to support each other. Thank you so much for all of the kind words, it is so very appreciated, and made me tear up. Mom was a special lady, and all that met her; met a friend. I only hope I can carry on her legacy of the woman she was. Again, thanks so much. You are all amazing people.
