I was wrong

November 2, 2008 by 8junebugs

She was not able to hang on until Thursday.

My mother died this morning around 4. In an eery replay of the night my grandmother died, we are unable to reach my father.

I am doing as well as can be expected. I know she is out of pain and at peace for the first time in many years, and that the last thing she heard from me was “I love you.” In the long run, I know that is enough.

I wish I could call everyone instead of putting it on here, but the hour is awkward and there is much to do.

I’m getting on a plane shortly and will be in Vermont for a bit. 8junebugs will be on hiatus until I get back and find my words again.
