She's been wanting to go see her Mama and my Dad in heaven for a month now: last night she got her wish. My wish for her is finally peace and a release from pain that's plagued her since her stroke almost 10 years ago.
Thanks for all your kind words; it really does help. I'll probably be absent here for a week or so but I take your love and hugs with me. You're good people and I'm glad to have you in my life.
