My mother passed away early this morning. She had been suffering from Alzheimer’s and COPD for several years. It was the COPD that ultimately took her life.
She had not recognized me since I returned from prison, did not know who I was, but I had visited Monday and on that visit she had a moment of lucidity and did recognize me and told me she loved me and I told her I loved her.
I feel a great loss, but at the same time blessed that God gave her that moment of lucidity and us a chance to say Goodbye and express our love before God took her home.
