Topic: Mom's battle is over

My dear sweet mother Bonnie completed her journey on this earth yesterday afternoon at 3:30pm.  She was surrounded by her husband Jerry, her children Kim, Karen and Mark, her sister & brother in law Elaine and Pete, and son in law Rob.  It was truly peaceful. 

We are trying to be comforted at the thought of Mom, whole and healthy and at peace, in heaven with the Father and Jesus, with her parents Mose and Libby, her sister Sally and her brother David.  That is the one thought that comforts me at the moment.

Since Mom never specified, in her obituary we are listing in lieu of flowers, donations for both Hospice or cholangiocarcinoma.org.

Many love and prayers to all of you still fighting the battle.  I'd imagine I'll still need to visit here in the coming weeks and months for the support of those who know what I'm going through.

Oh Kimmie,

I stood in your shoes on April 3, 2009 so I can truly say I understand how you are feeling right now.

What a wonderful gift you all gave your Mom!  Being there with her as she passed from your loving arms into those of her Lord.  I'm so thankful her passing was peaceful and easy.  She is now whole and healthy and reunited with other loved ones and the best part is that you know you WILL see her again someday!

I've had you on my mind a lot these last few days.  I've prayed that your Mom's passing would be peaceful.  I know you will find a strength deep inside you to carry you through these next few days. 

When you're ready, we'll all be here for you throughout the grieving process. 

Prayers, love and lots of hugs are coming your way...

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.
