If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that my mom has suffered from dementia for several years. It’s not something I blog about usually, mostly due to my mom’s extremely private nature, but also because my blog is one of my “happy places” and nothing about dementia is happy. At times, it’s funny because sometimes, all you can do is laugh, but it’s more often heartbreaking to see a loved one slip away, but continue to be present in body. That being said; my mom passed away early yesterday morning from her disease. I’ll miss my mother, even though at times we had a “prickly” relationship, but I like to think that in recent years both of us had mellowed and were able to enjoy each others company more often than not.
Again, I’ll miss my mom, but truly, her death was a release and a relief.
I love you, Mom. R.I.P.
