Farewell Mom

My mother passed away Sept 26, 2013. She was the last child of 21 children. Mom lost her battle with Dementia. She was a very strong lady. It is very bittersweet in a sense. I am relieved she is not suffering. She is at peace now. Mom was so confused for many years that she really was not herself. I had been grieving for 3 years because I was not able to share dollmaking or sewing with my mother.  I knew in my heart she would never be the same or act the way she use to act. I had a very creative mother. Mom was very sweet ...with a  fun loving personality that always lite up a room. Mom loved to sew. She taught me how to sew when I was 12.  Sewing has blessed my life for 46 years. She lived for 94 years so what a precious gift that I was given my God.  Rest in peace my dear mother....I love you!
