Mama.

Yesterday morning, October 31, while the moon was still out, my dear sweet Mama took her last breath.  I was able to be there with her in the early hours following, when hearing is still present.  I will feel forever blessed to have that time with her to say goodbye.  I haven't words to describe the day as the moments are too fresh, personal and raw to be written about publicly.  She has impacted my life beyond measure and her absence in every moment is palpable.

The outpouring of kindness from loved ones is felt throughout our family.  Thank you for your kind words, flowers and meals.  We so appreciate the extra nourishment on every level.
My beautiful Mama on Mother's Day 2011.

I've been thinking about you, Sara, and AJ a lot and send my love to you! Your mom was an amazing woman, a true pillar of strength. I'm sure she is incredibly proud of the wonderful people she raised!

I can't even imagine what you and your family are going through. What a beautiful time it must have been being able to sit with your mom in her last moments. But what will be even more beautiful will be the moment when the two of you reunite once again! My thoughts and prayers are with your family. xoxo
