Mom went to better place today. I have all the usual feelings of grief with a great big helping of relief for her. I'll be honest last night I was a little bit afraid that she wasn't going to die. That's how much I wanted her out of her misery. I guess if you haven't watch someone die in excruciatingly slow inches over 13 years that might sound harsh.

So yes in the days to come will be the tributes to a wonderful mother. But this needs to be a safe place for me to say that the first and most visceral reaction was relief.

Very busy day. I am too exhausted to go to bed but I'll make it there soon I think. Here's another beautiful collage made by Caleb:

  1. Can't wait to read the tributes to your mom and a life well lived. Thinking of you and your family during this time of remembering and celebrating her life. Even if you couldn't always tell, I'm sure your mom felt the love of her family as you all supported her during her years of dependence just as she care for you when your were dependent on her.
