I'm glad you're mom passed peacefully, and know that while your heart is heavy right now, you were loved and she knows how loved she was. Our love for those who have passed transcends all bounds. My condolences to you for your loss, and peace as you move forward.

I offer my condolences for you and your family. Just remember, she had a good life, not many make 102. One day soon you will both be together talking about all the memories you had.

Thank you all so much. The people on CD are the most caring in the world. At least on this thread they are.

I did want to ask a question that popped into my head as I was reading your description of how your mom is hovering w/ others surely beckoning her on to the next stage.

Do you feel there is someone here on this plane of existence that she is waiting to say good-bye to? Or something unfinished that is propelling her to cling to her life?

If that isn't a possibility . . . then I wondered if you have told her yourself that is alright with you for her to pass on to the next stage and be with those who are waiting for her. Maybe she needs to hear that from you -- that it is alright for her to leave you now? Maybe deep within her somewhere is that mother instinct still trying to "look after" her daughter?

I hope that doesn't sound far-fetched but I have seen family members "give permission" for parents to leave their bodies and within hours, they did just that.

Praying for you to have the strength to get through this without wearing yourself down . . . your mom would not want that . . .

Big hugs and know we are all sending good thoughts and prayers for you and your mom.
Ani, I don't think that is far-fetched at all. My dad hung on in a coma until my brother got home from Viet Nam. He passed on to his reward that very evening. My sister was present and told me the room filled with the sweetest most peaceful, loving, feeling and she told me, "They came and got him."
