December 19, 1921 - April 7, 2008

Today my Mother, Vera, passed away. Peace to her memory. She is in a far better place now, freed from her earthly body and physical limitations. Her mind is surely to be clear as a bell and she and my father, her parents and other loved ones are having a reunion like no other. I love you, Mom and will miss your face lighting up when you see me, just like it's Christmas. So many words, but this is all I can muster now.

What a beautiful photo and wonderful words. She is having a reunion like no other, of that I am sure.

Peace to her memory.

Thinking and praying for you and your family Deb, especially today.

Praying for you and your family, Deb, and wishing you peace as you travel this grief journey. I've so appreciated your candor and transparency in sharing several of your memories about your mom throughout the past several months. Peace to her memory.

Thank you for sharing your love for your mom with us all throughout the last year here in this space. Moms are the best and there is nothing else like them in the whole world! I'm praying for you and your family, Deb.

Dearest Deb, you and your family are an inspiration. The love and fun you all gave your mom was documented here on your blog throughout the past few years. God bless you each and every one.

What a wonderful photo to show how much your mother must have ment to you and your family. It shows so much love.
Actually I peaked into your space for another reason (we share surnames but we live in Sweden)but it can wait.
I´m sorry for your loss but know your mother has a very special place in your hearts.

Your memories of your mother are a beautiful tribute to her life and your own family is a reflection of the love she had for all of you. Thanks for sharing this all. I especially love the picture of you holding her hand in the hospital. That simple picture says more than any words could convey.
You're all in my thoughts and prayers.
