In Memory of MOM

It's been a awful day in my family............my mom passed away early Monday Morning. My sister's and I have been pretty much calling back and forth to try to figure things out for mom's memorial. We are about to go up North to help with the arrangements. I've been going thru pictures tonight of mom that I had in my scans. These are some I chose to use for mom's memorial service. This one of mom dressed up was taken at Doug and I's wedding celebration. I have some old ones of Mom and Dad together and some of Mom's Wedding.

We were all kinda shocked by the news, as I reported my mom was doing better and even maybe going to be out of the hospital and onto rehab.

She took a turn for the worse, and she did have Congestive Heart Failure. We think she had another heart attack and her heart just couldn't take it. Mom had multitude of problems, ontop of the heart problems.

My sisters Francine and Lorie were just going to visit mom and saw alot of people in her room. My sister noticed the chaplain of the hospital in the room also and than she knew something was wrong.

That's when the priest/chaplain of the hospital told my sisters mom had passed. They just spent 20 minutes trying to revive her and couldn't.

I know MOM was a woman of strong Faith and know she is in a better place....She won't suffer anymore and perhaps be reunited with my dad that passed away 24 years ago. My dad passed away in late June of 84.

Well, I should go here and I will probably be taking a break from blogging for awhile.

Mom and Dad :Sweethearts

Mom on her wedding day One of mom's many pregnancies Very old photo of our family(minus Wanda.....she's taking the picture) I'm the brat holding up the bunny ears over mom's head. I am sure there are better family photos of us, but this is the only one I had available.

Since Wanda wasn't in that photo here's a good one of Mom and Dad at Wanda's wedding. I like this photo of them kissing their first daughter to get married goodbye(out of the nest).
Mom being fun and goofy
