Yesterday I received word that my mother passed away at 12:30 in the afternoon in Calgary, after a long decline. I had just seen her the night before, and she had not known I was there.
I know that some of you will wish to give condolences, but rest assured that I am tough, I am old, and that at last my mother is at peace.
This has been a long time coming, and know that I am at ease with myself and ready to move onto the next thing. There is nothing to be done that is not being done, and such is the process of life. We face this from time to time, and we are best if we do it with chin up.
