I'm very saddened to say that my wonderful Mom, passed away on Wednesday, October 24th, after a long illness with cancer.
My whole family was able to be at her side for days before her death, and she knew we were with her.
She passed with all of us at her side, at 8:33am, she took her last breathe, smiled and peacefully passed. We felt a great calmness within us as she passed,and we knew she was no longer suffering.
She went into pallative care just a week prior, and experienced no pain. Even when she could no longer talk to us, she still managed to make us smile and tease us!
She was a wonderful,giving and caring person!
We will miss her dearly.

Hi Krista! You and your family are still in my prayers. Your Mom was a great person...I could tell even though I only met her a few times.
She always spoke to me whenever she ran into me.
I am so sorry for your lost... It was good to see you but not under those circumstances. I just needed to give you a hug to let you know I was here for you and still am if you need anything.

Take care,
Carrie
