On February 3, 2017, at 3:30 in the morning, my Mom peacefully left this world. A few hours before she passed, several family members gathered at her apartment, surrounding her with our love, and preparing our hearts for the loss we knew was close at hand.
In Mom’s final hours, she was covered with a special blanket she had received as a gift for her 91st birthday. The blanket held pictures of over 60 family members and descendents, a legacy of love carried on in this and future generations. Family was truly her greatest joy and pride.
She was the perfect definition of unconditional love, and even when I strayed she never let me out of her heart. I will miss her very much.
