Dear Char, you were already in college when I was born. And although I didn’t know you well, I was close with your mother, your grandmother, and your younger brother took me under his sixteen year old wings as if I were his own little baby sister.
I’m so sorry I never met your children. You married and moved to the east coast when I was quite young. You never came back to visit. I did see your mother at the moment of her death. I know you’re with her now.
Your husband posted this on your Facebook page:
“6:45 PM. I have left this dimension. I am now at peace. No more cancer. No more discomfort. I leave behind a loving husband of 44 years. Four wonderful children. 9 Magnificent grandchildren and a little girl, my namesake, to carry on for me, born in June. I have a wonderful brother. In 2001 I was fortunate to find my birth mother and 5 sisters and 3 brothers. It was a wonderful life.
I was a good wife, mother and grandmother. I was blessed. Thank you. God bless. Good bye. See you on the other side.
Damn. I just hate it when people die.Tears me apart, me, a hospice nurse.
I didn’t know you well, but I do believe you were, indeed, blessed.
