It's been weeks of sleepless nights, harried hours, sad and treasured moments. We'd been cherishing each and every day, taking care of my sweet mother. Through all her trials and suffering, this brave woman never complained, except for time wasted visiting doctors, in fact, she'd only mentioned she'd have a headache now and then. 

The malignancy was severe, filling her lungs making it almost impossible to breathe, even the oxygen barely helped. But when asked by us or the nurses that came to the house, she'd say, "I'm breathing fine. No pain. I'm good."

She passed peacefully on June 12th. 

I'd like to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers. This is a part of life. And our family has been extremely Blessed to have Mom for 85 years. 

We are here for a short time, and then go home...that's my faith...

  7. Cathrina, I notice someone with the blog name "dono jono" has pasted a viagra message on your post. You might want to report them. He or she is going everywhere with the ads. I've seen the same message on about four other blogs.
