Late Friday evening we got the call from the Nursing Home that Mom was asking for us and that she had asked if this was the end...so we went over and stayed the night with her and talked, etc. Saturday evening Aunt Phyllis came back around 9 and at 9:30 pm Mom passed with the 3 of us by her side. She went peacefully and they did an excellent job of keeping her comfortable. Mom is now in a better place and no longer suffering......A big thank you for all the prayers and well wishes...they meant alot to us....

Mom is now in a nursing home and is doing as well as can be expected. It's been a rough couple of weeks and will get rougher from now till the end. Jim and the kids made it up and it was great to see them, just wasn't long enough....I haven't done any sewing in so long and don't think I will for quite awhile yet. I did get into Joann's and Pat Catan's(craft store) and picked up a pattern, crochet hook and yarn to make some dishcloths. Will start on that sometime today. The other night as I was leaving from visiting Mom there was a nice sunset and I just happened to have my camera so here is a picture of it. We are just taking it one day at a time for now.
