Mom


I'm sorry I have been so busy & not here....my beloved mother finally passed on after her 2 and a half year battle with Ovarian Cancer. She passed on September 24th. She was so strong all through her illness & she will be missed by all the grand kids so much. This was the last picture that I took with her when Cole was just 10 days old.

We hand each grandchild put a hand print on the casket in paint. It turned out beautifully.....my sister and I took a photo of it before they took her to her final resting place.

On the knitting front I have been working on Haven and have about a half of skein left. I am giving it to my mother's hospice nurse Jessica who was so wonderful these past few months. As soon as I get it done I will take a photo.

Delurking to say how sorry I am. Bringing a new life in and losing such a special one in such a short amount of time has to be so hard. I lost my father in August, and I know how difficult it is. My prayers are with you and your family.

Sorry for the late comment but I just read your post and had to tell you how sorry I am. It is so heartbreaking to lose someone so dear too early. I do love the idea of the handprints though. What a great way to represent her posterity. Take care.

I'm sorry I'm so late on this too. I've been missing you, knowing that you must be busy with your new beautiful boy.
I am so very sorry for your loss.
What a difficult time to lose her. I am so glad she got to meet your Cole before passing though.
Thinking of you and your family,
