Passage

Kristi's Mom, Ellen, died this afternoon at 3:40 pm. LM and Kristi held her hands as she passed peacefully. Tonight we reflected on how she is now free from all the unhappiness which seemed to plague every day of her life. Kristi is receiving a lot of support, crying, and happy intermittently, and loved the big pot of pansies I brought for her to care for in memory of her Mom.
LM is exhausted to say the least, and there is a mountain to climb before true rest can come.  As I approached the walkway at his house this evening, I looked in and could see Ms G walking back and forth across LM's lap.....she's such a little angel. 

Thank you for everyone for all your prayers, thoughts and sharing our vigil. There is a measure of peace upon us this evening.  April is a time of rebirth. We are grateful.

Love to all!!

Let the healing begin.

Relief is nothing to feel guilty about--don't let LM or Kristi feel that way--it is natural. Glad this is over for all of you--perhaps you can plant the pansies in LM's garden so Kristi can see them and take care of them there. Peace--it will come.
