My mom doesn't have to suffer with the terrible disease of Alzheimer's any more.
On August 14 at 2:15 am, Mom breathed her last breath. I thank God that I was at her side. I was able to say my goodbyes and comfort Mom at the end.
In her final days she was suffering terribly with pneumonia. She fought for each breath she took, as her frail body broke down.
I was sad to let her go, but sadder to see her continue in anguish. Each day I pause to remember the woman she was when she was healthy, vibrant and witty. There will never be another as kind, sweet, and loving as my mom.
