So I can remember

It has been a heavy week: sorting cleaning and dealing w/ so many memories
old and new
and all the emotions of all ten of us  (the ten children of my Mother).
What a mixed bag because as fun as she was  she was  always in pain
this July
 I think when we   die  we hope that we will be remembered for our efforts and not so much the other things :)I really hope that for myself and i will try to do that for her

Having spent time w/ my siblings I miss them more now as well.

I wish we had not had to do it so quickly but glad for it to be done so quickly too,
 Although i will miss the caring and visiting w/ my Mom
-I would not bring her back to the pain she endured so long
  - and I have that peace the gospel brings that she is peaceful now and that we will meet again

I love the pictures of you and all your brothers and sisters.

You are an awesome daughter, what a gift you gave her by being there for her in her last years and days.

Love you!

I am so sorry for your loss. It's always bittersweet going through a loved one's things. It's so telling and there are always things you'd like to ask about, but can't.

My condolences to you & family. Although we know death is coming, we are never truly prepared for it. But it's also a good thing that you get to spend time with your siblings & remember all the happy days that your mom lived. :)
