Sending Anna

My Mom passed away a month before "9/11."  Twelve years really seems like a long time in regards to that.

All of Mom's close friends are still alive.  I get great comfort seeing these women when I am back home.  It's as though Mom is still alive through the memories of her friends.

One of her closest friends, Anna, went into hospice this week.  That has really plunged me into great sadness.  I feel as though I am mourning my Mom again.  This lady, Anna, is such a sweet, sweet woman.  She's the type of person about whom you never hear an unkind word.  I live three hours from my home town now, and rarely see Anna, but it always feels comforting to know she is around. 

I snipped this with her in mind.

***Saturday night.......I just heard from my sister that Anna passed today.

Jan -
I understand, and I'm so sorry.

No one ever really leaves if we keep them in our hearts.....

Sorry to hear that... lost connections to someone, and a generation, and another thread to your mom. Thinking of you.
