My brother, John, posted a short beautiful remembrance of our mother this afternoon on Facebook. She died thirteen years ago today. It was Saturday morning, January 6, 2007. She was 89 years old.
I couldn’t say it better than John did:
MAY HER SOUL….
Today is the thirteenth anniversary of my mother’s death. Getting older is a trial because some events seem so very distant and other so very recent. Mom’s passing partakes of both. How did she and I both get so old so quickly? In any case, parents are not a forever thing. If yours are still among us, take the time to know them better while the opportunity is before you! And if your mother or father has passed on to greater glory, you can still have a chat!
May her soul, and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace.
He posted these pictures and captions as well.
