My Beautiful Dorothy

I Miss My Mother Dorothy.  We were very close.  She was not only my mother, she was my one and only friend.  We had a lot of good times together.  She liked to experience new adventures and got tickled real easy.  She had such a good sense of humor and we laughed a lot.  No laughing now.

Dorothy had COPD and Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Her lungs finally gave out and she passed away the night of her birthday June 18, 2005.

I'm already tearing up will finish this some other time.

Our mom had rheumatoid arthritis very bad ... had to quit work because of it. She had a heart attack at 67, and they discovered lung cancer complicated by COPD. She died five years later at 72, after going through a real battle. That woman had so much courage. Just when Enbrel was giving her some relief, the cancer started to do a number on her body.<br />

But her beautiful spirit was able to shine through the terrible process, and she died on her own terms. My hero...
