So it's been a rough week. My mother passed away a week ago yesterday. Thankfully she got to see her entire family right before, including a phone call with her sister, with whom she was close. We sorta knew this was coming soon, so it wasn't a complete shock, but we didn't think it would happen the day after we all visited. She was down to 72 pounds and couldn't swallow food much anymore. She was in a nursing home briefly and then an assisted living facility in an attempt to get some weight put back on her, but obviously to no avail. She was 78. My brothers, my father and I will miss her every day we are alive.
She loved seeing pics of my little dolls. She was an artist herself. I was happy that she got to see little Violet in person, my last 6 inch doll that sold on ebay. I had to take it to TN with me because the auction was still active. I showed her my doll and she was amazed. She thought she was so sweet. I will miss talking with her about picking out fabrics, she loved to do that for me when she visited and I was making a doll. She had a great eye for color. She was an AMAZING oil painter. I didn't have the patients for waiting for the oils to dry so I always used acrylics.
I miss her terribly..
I love you Mom,
