Mum passed away at 1.40 this afternoon.

We were all there and she went peacefully.

That is all for now.

Oh Michelle - I am so sorry for you and your family. Sandy sounded like one hell of a woman and she has left behind one hell of a daughter. I am so proud of you - you have been the best daughter ever.

If there is anything you need or that I can do for you, just say the word. xoxo

It is wonderful for you mum that she was able to peacefully pass at home, surrounded by the people that she loved. You cannot overstate the importance of this, 'Chelle.

You have all been fabulous, especially you, Bluest One. Strength will keep coming your way. But while you're looking after everyone else, don't forget to give yourself some time. Just to Breathe.

dear michelle,
may your family feel peace now that she is free of her suffering... reading your blog as you went through this with your mum has been an intense experience but I am sure it pales to what your reality has been... knowing a bit of what she had, i realize it must have been very difficult and always generates questions of "why?" but there are never any answers to that one...

please take good care of Michelle now, let her have her way, feed her well and take many many naps to restore yourself.... you have been through hell and back and now I hope your life holds only peace, love and happiness.... and art!

much love, linda

Take care of yourself, dear one.

I am so glad that you were all there for her and for each other during this time. Your family has a connection that will always exist not matter where each of you are. Blessings to you all, especially to your mother as she will now have the blissful peace that her soul is ready for. Sending prayers of strength, courage and lots of rest and peace for you all ♥

Very sorry for your's and your familys loss. It would have been a wonderful thing for your mum to have had all of her family around at the final passing.

Love to you xxxx

Thank you for letting us know. I am so sorry for your loss. It was so good that your brother arrived in time to be with his mother. Wishing you all the best and do take time out for yourself now.

Oh, Michelle, I love you and I weep with you.

My mother made sure she would have us all with her. I guess so did yours.

Treasure your grief for the cleansing it is. Treasure your Mum for the woman she still is inside you and between you all.

It is what it is. Another day on planet Earth with those who come in and those who depart, with all the rest of us known and unknown.

Weep for the spot of joy within the grief, the spot of grief in all joy.

We weep when it is time to weep.

I stood to the left
of the narrow midnight spring
watching the water
finger out over
the slab of granite laying
flat, letting the flow
drop a foot into
the pool below.

I prayed for your mum, for you.
I prayed for us all.
