My mother

My mother passed away on January 9th at age 88. She had been dealing with COPD and congestive heart failure for several years. She got sick in December and eventually ended up with pneumonia as well as sepsis.

Jerry and I flew up to Detroit on Tuesday the 8th and mom passed just after midnight. In her last day family was able to get to the hospital to say goodbye.

Her service on Sunday was as lighthearted as a funeral service can be. There were lots of laughs along with the tears.

I'm back home now and just absorbing the situation. Here are mom's 10 grandchildren.

And a link to her obituary
