You Can Go Now, Mum

Posted on Wed, Jun 8, 2011 at 10:30 AM

My mother, in her late 90s, once a vibrant 'larger than life' powerhouse who couldn't quit is ready to go to the Land of Muffinkind. She outlived 3 doctors who told her that her weight would kill by age 60. She defied all the rules and lived to tell the tale. Bless you, Mum, for your creativity and passion for life and teaching me that all that matters is here and now.

Dad's been waiting 40 years for you, sweetheart, may your energies join and dance to Red Sails in the Sunset.

Your babies will be there tonight by your side. —I Love You, Moo Maw, TTFN
