It is with a mixture of great sadness and pure joy that I write this. Â Mom's body lost her battle with cancer though her spirit won the sweetest victory the morning of February 2nd.
She passed sweetly, softly and in the arms of her children. Â We could not have been more blessed to have witnessed the spirit of this beautiful woman leave her body to take her rightful place in heaven as a child of God. Â The best part was that was our fears of her discomfort and pain in her last hours were never realized. Mom was pain-free, comfortable and peaceful as she made her transition and that was a wonderful gift to her family.
I want to personally thank each and every one of you for the beautiful cards that you sent her and the powerful prayers that you sent up. Â I want you to know that they were answered. Â Mom is healed! Â Perfectly and completely. Â Please continue to keep our family in your prayers as those that are left behind embark on a new journey.
My mother was the nucleus of our family with a magnetism that will surely be seen in the coming days. Â Everyone that she met became family. Â As her kids, we were always slightly resentful of having to share her with so many people because, as you very well know, every child wants their mami to themselves. Â However, we learned a lot about how to treat others, how to live life and what really matters. Â I would like to think we radiate some of her light and goodness because of it. Due to her gravitational pull, mami is survived by a great number of people, not just blood relatives. Â I cannot name them all and will not because it would be a great tragedy if I forget someone's name.
Again, thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Â They were heard and they continue to sustain us as we mourn the homegoing of this wonderful woman.
