In Loving Memory

My mom passed away last night, peacefully, in her sleep at the age of 66.
It seems so surreal at this point. So unbelievable, yet it's there and it's all I can think about. And the next few days will be filled with a multitude of tasks and details to attend to.
Mom, you will be so greatly missed. We all loved you dearly and there will be a huge void in our lives.
I have so much to say, but I don't know what to put down... or how to say it. So for now, this is what it is.

Annette- we are so, so sorry for the loss of your dear mother. Know we are thinking of you, your family, and giving you lots of hugs during this most difficult time. I know your 40th birthday is this week too, and this must make it most difficult to bear. Lots of love, Jan, Jeff and Nash

My dearest Annette,,,,,,I'm sitting here with tears streaming down my face. The thoughts of all the emotions you are facing right now ~ bring back those same powerful tears I cried for my beloved Mother just a month ago.

I am hoping you made it to your Mothers house yesterday and were able to embrace her and let her feel your presence.

Our Mothers love, care and friendship is a gift that we were so blessed to have our whole lives...and now the void is strongly felt.

I do believe our Mothers are in heaven watching over us and that someday we will get to join them again.....and I know that their loving spirits will be in our hearts always.

With all my love and sympathy.

Annette,,,,,,thinking of you today as you lay your Mother to Rest. I'm so very sorry you are traveling this very sad path right now. I know today you will be facing so many emotions and I so wish I could be there to lend you a shoulder and an ear. Actually, I had been planning on driving up to Canada today to visit with you and Jan was going to go up too.....to celebrate with you joining US in our 40's!!! But our plans were not able to be solidified [but we did try!]

All my love, TM
