Lost my Mother Monday Morning

by Donna Hilyard
(Longwood, Florida)

My Mother died in her sleep early Monday Morning in Orlando.
I knew this time would come, but is unbearable! She was ready to go! She was hospitalized the Week of Christmas, and recently went to a rehab center. She wanted to be back in her own home, but was too week. I told her the Sunday before she died that I had ordered the equipment and she was excited. She was mad at my sister and I that she could not go home, but she was so weak, we all were worried about her falling. I have been very blessed to have had her for 92 years. Her visitation is today, and her mass tomorrow. I know people will say she had a good long life, but it doesn't matter. I also don't know to say my Mothers name is or was. I want to say is, as I feel she has moved on to her next journey, and pray that she will come to visit me. I am taking her two kitties in that will make her happy. I just want to take sleeping pills and sleep for 6 months until this is over. We lost our Dad 31 years ago, so my sister and I have been her caretaker in one form or the other. I have been very proud of my Mother. She also made sure she was always classy in her appearance! She even had her Jewelry on in the Hospital. I hope she understands that we would have brought her home and was doing what was best for her. We were able to keep her in her home for all of this time until the end.
