Default RIP Mom

Lost my Mother the day before Thanksgiving. She had just had her 96th birthday and and 4 days after what would have been their 72d anniversary had my Dad not passed 6 years ago due to cancer. She'd just had the chance to see pictures of her newest Great Grandson, adopted 5 weeks ago. She went peacefully and was ready to go be with Dad.

I didn't have my Vette before my Dad passed, but he knew I'd wanted one since I was 5 years old. Mom always declined a ride in it because she was afraid that if she got into it, she might not get out. Even without a ride, she thought it was 'cute'.

I miss them so much.

I'm sorry about your mom. Not many live to 96. Best wishes.

It seems when a Mom passes away, a piece of you also passes, but just remember the good times you had together, and the fun things you did with her.
