The Parent Lottery

My mother, Agnes M. Peace, died Wednesday night. Her much loved children John, Kathy and Mary carried the burden of caring for her at the end of her life. I freely tell people that my siblings and I hit the parent lottery. Had it not been for my mother and father I would not have survived my childhood. They were pillars of strength when I was going through the medical mill as a child.  They supported me in a way that forever changed my life. The world has lost two great people. I am just heartbroken. Mourning the death of a parent is terrible.

My Silence

I have not posted in a long time. My mother is very elderly and seriously ill hence my silence. I will be back to posting regularly relatively soon. I appreciate the many inquiries about my silence. I am fine. Please send good thoughts and prayers to my Mother, Agnes M. Peace. She is an amazing woman. If not for her fierce care and love for me as a morbidly sick child I would not have lived to become an adult. As I tell many, I hit the parent lottery. My parents were as close to perfect as humanly possible.
