On the evening of December 26, 2008 my mom passed gently away into the night after a short fight with cancer. She gave me a last gift over the last couple of weeks that she would want me to share.
Her gift to me and hopefully to you is to remember that during the Christmas holidays (and always really) don’t stress so much on what present to buy, on finding that extra “thing”, or spending fifteen hours on the perfect dinner. What really matters is that you reach out to your family, hug them, and don’t wait to make the effort to call a family member or friend. You never know what will happen tomorrow.
She is at peace now. Sharing this with you is my gift to her.
She will be dearly missed and remembered forever.
A private ceremony will be held at the request of the family.
