My mom passed away late yesterday afternoon. Quietly and peacefully.
Ironically, I was out with middle daughter after buying groceries when the call came from hospice. Ironic since this daughter and I planned on dropping off our supplies and heading to the hospital so she could say her goodbyes to my mom. Wasn't meant to be, but I wasn't keen on her last memory being of Mom in the state she was in anyhow.
The hospice nurse said Mom expired which I thought was a strange phrase to use. Then she said she was sorry for my loss.
She rejoices in Heaven with my dad, her parents, her sister and lots of relatives. Not to mention Jesus Himself.
