Dear Kelly, we will truly miss Sweet Mary, she was such a kind, caring and dignified woman that in a unique way I was proud to know. My Condolences go out to your family.
Those we love must someday pass beyond our present sight…
They leave us and the world we know without their radiant light.
But we know that like a candle their lovely light will shine
To brighten up another place more perfect…more divine.
And in the realm of Heaven where they shine so warm and bright,
Our loved ones live forevermore in God’s eternal light.May 19, 2014 at 10:30 pm #82473marionsModerator
Kelly….your dear Mom will be in our hearts and on this site forever. She is greatly missed by our community. I take comfort in knowing that when someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.
Hoping for your heart to heal….one day at a time.
Hugs and love,

Thank you all for your kind words of love and support. My mom passed about 9am this morning. She seemed peaceful and didn’t seem to be in pain. Her memorial service will be this Wednesday. Please continue to keep us all in your thoughts & prayers.

I am so sorry to hear about your dear, sweet mom. She always had the nicest things to say to me before and after my daughter, Lauren passed away last June. I don’t come on this site much because it is just too painful for me, but I happened to see this and had to send a message your way. Your mom is a true gem with a heart of gold. I hope she is resting comfortably. My prayers are with her and your family during this most difficult time.
Love and hugs,

Thank you for letting us know how Mary is and I am real sorry to hear this news. I was there with my dad throughout and I know how you are feeling right now and what you are going through as well. I am glad to hear that Mary is comfortable and has her loving family by her side as well. Your mum is much loved by us all and please know that we are all here for you as well Kelly. My thoughts are with you and your family right now.

Your Mom is a caring, incredibly strong and loving woman. She has contributed so much to this board by offering support, advice and encouragement. Also by sharing her own story. Many thoughts are with you at this precious yet painful time.

Kelly…..thank you for allowing us to accompany dear Mary in her journey of peace and love.

Kelly, a bittersweet thank you and we are praying for a comfortable journey for our sweet Mary. Keep talking gently to her as she will hear you even if you think not. And please tell her that I am with her in Spirit and that we all love her so very much. Kelly, be strong you are a wonderful daughter.May 17, 2014 at 2:53 pm #82463darlaParticipant
Thanks for updating your mom’s condition. I am sorry it has come to this, but know that she is in good hands with hospice care. They will help to assure that she is made comfortable and as pain free as possible and that is the most important thing at this point. My thoughts and prayers are with her and you. Please let us know how things are going when you can.
Love & Hugs,

So sorry to hear about your mum.
I am sending my love from far across the oceans.
Be strong, be by her side, hold her hand and lightly stroke her face.

I’m Mary’s daughter, Kelly. I wasn’t sure where to post this so I hope starting a new topic will help everyone see my post.
My mom started home hospice this week. Yesterday, she significantly declined, and hospice had me call my family. Hospice does not believe she’ll make it for more than a week. My mom is fairly non-responsive but she seems comfortable and not in pain. My husband and I are surrounded by our family and friends.
My mom spoke so highly of all of you. I’m sure I’ll miss some people, but I know my mom has spoke of her, “soul sister,” Lisa Craine. She has also mentioned Kris, Betsy, Lainey & Gavin. You’ve all given her hope and strength to continue on her journey. It means more than you’ll ever know.
I wanted to keep you updated on what’s going on and will try to check back here later today.
With love & peace,
