Mary won her battle with cancer January 18, 2017, determined, relieved and supported.
Mom’s work is done, she has been promised a better position, one where she will be reunited with those she has missed for so many years. She booked a “one-time only appointment” on January 18th, 2017, surrounded by her children and grandchildren, a sort of an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which she will not be returning.
This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus which will include a reunion of the family and the many friends she will leave behind who will come to celebrate in her honor.
She left specific instructions to celebrate, not to grieve. We will all miss her cooking, classy demeanor, outgoing spirit and crusty exterior, her giving nature to all those she knew and her lack of tolerance for being late, but most of all…..
Her heart of gold.
