    Today is the 7th anniversary of the death of my mother. She was all of 88 when she died. Never sick with more than a cold her entire life, so it came as a hugh shock to find out in Aug. 2008 that she had breast cancer. Mom had never been to the doctors in probably 50 yrs. Mom did what she always did, when they all said she couldn’t live on her own anymore…she ran all the people out of her home & lived on her own. She got very sick in Nov. and left us on Dec. 31, 2008. In the end, she died, not at home where she begged to go that day, but in a nursing home. I miss & love my mother so much. So much has happened since she left us. The old house is falling down, family memebers have joined her in Heaven, including her oldest son. She has a grandson Xander she never got to meet. I know mom is with my dad,& my grandson Dylan in Heaven & one day we’ll all be together again. Yes Mom, your Christmas tree went up this yr. Love & miss you.
