I am really glad I flew to my Mom's side when I did.  She passed away at 12:50am (March 8th, 2009).  My sister was there with her, however I was not, but I did give her a kiss and told her I loved her before I left her room earlier in the evening. My sister called me and I was at the hospital in 20 minutes.  The nurse said she passed very peacefully, just like she wanted to.  I am so grateful that she is no longer suffering at all, and I know she is in a better place.

Thanks to all my extended family for your kind words, thoughts, prayers.  They mean more to me then you can know.  I will be extending my stay here to take care of family business, but will see you all soon.

I love you all
Dave

Mom with Brett, Don, me, Gail!

Losing a parent is always especially rough. At least it was indeed peaceful. Best wishes.

What a nice picture of mom and her kids. So sorry for your loss. She went peacefully and quick. The best way to go. Thank God you made the trip when you did instead of waiting. Your last kiss will be in her heart forever.

Take care and may the days be peaceful.
