She went peacefully at home holding my dad's hand and that is how I would want to go. We got to WA late Wednesday afternoon and went to dad's and then we had the service on Friday. I hadn't slept much that night and I could hear the rain and wind just howling, a horrible storm and I thought "No what a terrible day to lay mom to rest", but the rain stopped the wind died down and and even though it was so cold we were able to say good-bye to mom and as we all finished the Lord's prayer at the grave site the sun came out and shone brightly for a moment and we all remarked how wonderful and then I knew my mom was with my brother.
Yesterday my dad unfortunately spent most of the day at the Urgent Care and Jan has an appointment for him on Tuesday. He is suppose to start Chemo again on the 11th but we will have to wait to see how his health is. So I plan on being here til after that. Last evening we had a wonderful opportunity though to end the year on a more positive note as Greg Howell my niece's boyfriend opened his home to us and had us for New Year's Eve dinner. There was Dusty, myself, our son Larry, our daughter Sarah, my sister Jan and brother-in-law David, my nephew Paul and his son Gavin, Patti and Paul, Benjamin and Evan friends of the family Jen and her two boys Conner and Logan and Greg and his two children Maddie and Logan. So our family was minus a few but we couldn't remember the last time we had started the New Year together and even tho it was the end of one year and passing of a dear loved one, we were still getting together to celebrate the beginning of a New year together. Who knows where our travels will take us in the following 12 months but I hope to take you along as we continue on our way!!
