Thanks to all who commented about my Mom's courageous recovery. We had a wonderful time in New York with her at my niece's wedding on September 15th. Mom was so happy to have all of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews together for such a wonderful occasion. Today I received a call from my niece Jennifer to let me know that God had brought Mom home to be with my Dad. She came down with a cold a few days ago which developed into pneumonia. Mom was ready to go and slipped away in her sleep with Jennifer by her side telling her how much we all loved her. So sad for all of us left behind but so glorious for her. She will be missed.
