My Mom died in the same manner as she lived her life-her way. Lived in her own home, fiercely independent with the most recent 4 legged companion Sam who will be with his cousins in Louisiana! My Mom's love of animals obviously influenced me to be a veterinarian. She raised all her children to be independent which led us to pursue adventures in different parts of the world. For me that meant finding my soul mate Stuart. She was there to witness our 25th anniversary where we finally celebrated with a wedding with her grandchildren Mac & Aly as our best man and maid of honor. She danced that day and again with her son David and his wife Sharon to welcome in the new year.
She was ready and wanted to leave this chapter and to critique the sequel. Love ya Mom.
