    My heart goes out to you and now know you have another Angel looking after you. She is a beautiful lady, your mother, and I see the date is exactly one month past what would have been my own mother’s birthday. She put up a valiant fight and from what you have told me she lived life on her terms. Someone to admire to be certain. I hold you and your family in my heart and know my mom has the best of company now. Do take care.

    My deepest condolences, Becca. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. May strength and peace prevail to you and your loved ones.


  5. Becca,
    My sympathies to you and your family. I remember you saying on your mothers last birthday that she had been proving her doctors wrong. She must have been a strong lady. She had to have been a wonderful woman to have created a wonderful woman like you. May she be at peace and painting with the angels precious images of her new place of peace.
    Blessings … Isadora 🙏

    Sending you my love. I shall add your beautiful Mom to the special Baha’i prayer for the departed I say every day. My Mom passed on a December 12th so it shall be easy to remember you and your Mom.

      It has been a few weeks of synchronicity. She passed at 10:11 on 12-13-14. I had hoped it wouldn’t be during a holiday time, but accepted the inevitability of it. Someone shared she would have Christmas in Heaven. It’s a tender way of viewing it. I’m sorry for the loss of your mom as well … no matter how long it has been. Thank you for your message.

    Oh, Becca. I knew it had to come, and I suspected it would be soon. But it’s always too soon, isn’t it?. Tonight, tears and smiles intermingle. My best to you and your whole family


  19. Beautiful Lady. My sincerest condolences.


  20. My deepest sympathy. Is this your mother?
