Changes

Specifically life changes. While we were in Seattle this last trip my mother passed away–mainly due to extended cardiac illness but also complications from Alzheimer’s Disease. I guess in some ways she was lucky in that shortly before she went, she could still remember her children. This was very important to her. Family was always important.

As hard as it is to lose someone, in some cases it’s a blessing because of the release from pain and discomfort. In Mom’s case probably most painful was realizing she was forgetting those closest to her and the loneliness she felt from missing our father and  her husband of over fifty years, Jim. For us it was hard hearing her talk about wanting to go and be with him, but we understood.

So here’s to you Mom, I’m still singing your favorite songs.

So Long Mom

I guess I never really learned how to say goodbye

Mostly I just turned and walked away with a sigh

Loving you was easy, because of the love you gave

You cared for so many, so much happiness you made

 

Save me a spot in heaven, I’ll be there by and by

Save me a spot in heaven, I’ll see you when I die

 

I never wondered if you loved me, you were always there

Even now I feel you with me, cause your love is everywhere

We will always miss you, the family and me

But you are happy without the pain, cause you now are free

 

Save me a spot in heaven, I’ll be there by and by

Save me a spot in heaven, I’ll see you when I die
