Saying Goodbye...

On July 16th, my mother went home to be with the Lord.  I was grateful to have been able to be with my family and to visit her for the two weeks prior to her passing.  Though she was pretty much in a coma during that time, she did open her eyes and squeeze my hands tightly one morning.  That was the most movement she showed.  

We had a Memorial Service for her a week later on July 23rd.  Though I'd like to share more about that at a later time, this is where I said my goodbyes to my mother.
One of my favorite memories is the afternoon I spent with my mother and my children here by the Lafayette River.  We sat under the shade of trees with a Japanese picnic lunch, enjoying the lovely view and cool breezes.  We must have been there for several hours.  It was a perfect day.

Oh, honey, I'm so sorry for your loss. I understand.

Big, big hugs, Marla

Wow, the pics are beautiful, so I can only imagine what it's like in person. A "perfect" goodbye would be one that isn't needed in the first place, but this seems near-perfect.
