Moms passing

This is a tough post to write. Today August 18, 2013 a great woman and my mom passed away in the early morning hours. She was surrounded by her sons and daughter-in-laws who were taking care of her since she became ill several weeks ago. Mom had been diagnosed with lung cancer – stage IV over 3 years ago – not long after dad passed. Due to new medications (targeted drugs and some “Indian remedies”) she had a good quality of life for ~ 3 years after having been diagnosed.


Mom developed fluid in the lungs a couple months ago and had been suffering since then. She was a real trooper through the whole nasty process. Cancer tried to make her something other than what she was – a true, beautiful Christian lady who cherished and nurtured her family with her love and caring. Cancer was the looser in that battle.

She prepared everything in advance knowing what was to come. The end did not come smoothly but mom dealt with it with grace and Gods (and I am sure my dad’s) help. She is with dad now and forever in our hearts – may God bless you mom – you were the ambassador of the family and a great mom who was always there for me. You will be dearly missed. I look forward to being with you again.

A word of wisdom from Mom “Aging is a process when the clock goes around faster than you can keep up with it !”
