My mother, Jean, died last night.
Some of you knew her under her Craft name, Cameo. Everyone who met her was impressed with her strength and grace. She was a true child of Brigid, as a nurse, as a mother, and as a woman.
We had been doing hospice care for her at home. She had one bad day, and when at the end of that day we were able to get pain control, she simply let go and passed away.
If you are moved to make remembrance of her, please light a candle in her name. If you can, send me a picture. Let’s light her way to the Uttermost West.
She asked that other remembrances be local acts of love and charity: thank a nurse, plant a tree, or donate to your local library.
Thank you all for your love and support.
