Goodbye for now, Mom.

Me_Mom_WeddingThis post is a departure from my regular topics, but I wanted to share how my life has been dramatically changed. A little over a week ago my precious mom died. It was sudden and unexpected. Although her health had not been great for a while, it wasn’t anywhere near life threatening…or so I thought.

However, the woman who was my rock suffered a major stroke and heart attack. The stroke destroyed the left side of her brain and the stress of that caused her to have a heart attack. She lived for three days and then passed on to continue her journey with God in heaven.

Today we bury the woman who knew me the best, loved me the most, and was my best friend. It is hard to believe, but a part of the life cycle I suppose. She was so encouraging about my blog and my writing. It is with those memories (and a million others that make me smile), I will work to live a life that would make her proud. I love you and miss you desperately, but I find comfort in knowing you are resting with the angels, so, goodbye for now, Mom. I will see you again one day.

  1. This is such a beautiful photo of the two of you. Words cannot express how much I will miss your Mom….. her smile & her sense of humor. She brought out the best side of my Mom, but I guess that’s what you do when you’ve been friends for 6 or perhaps almost 7 decades. Love to you sweet friend… xoxox

  2. This is a beautiful tribute to someone who was obviously a beautiful person – and was loved by so many. She clearly left a beautiful daughter behind her. Am sharing in your grief and in your hope… xo

  3. I have no words. This is incredible Sherry. This photo is one of the best of all the photos we have of her.
