My mother has passed.
A great woman, strong of heart, mind and soul leaves this world behind, poorer for the loss. The strongest woman I have ever known. And I am more than tempted to cry a warning to all in the afterlife because of it.
She leaves behind 2 sons, 1 daughter, a second husband (She was a widow), 5 grand-daughters and a grand-son, all well-provided for and brought up able to deal with the world on it's own terms. She will be sorely missed, her like is rare in this world.
I'm going to bed now. She and I have had the conversations we needed to. We've been aware of this for some time. The plans needed were made, the will set up. She was conscientious in all things and this was no exception. A life, well lived, duty scrupulously adhered to, morals strongly held, and ideals worn on her breast for all to see, friend and foe alike. She made sure we were ready for this, and because of that, tonight I will sleep. Tomorrow I will morn and as she did, I shall do what needs be done.
Give your loved ones a hug, we have too little time with them no matter how much it is.
Ah hell, I gotta say it, I know I know, but it's true.
Watch out folks above! She was a tennis champion and brought up two *rowdy* boys with a paddle hewn from a 2x4! DO NOT PISS HER OFF!
