Today, Mother would have been 101 years old! She lived to be 99 years and 5 months. Even though she lived in Colorado and I live in Michigan I was privileged to be with her as she crossed over from life to death.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   I love this picture of her.  I miss Mother so much. But death is a part of life.  She was a child of God. She taught me well. I’m also a child of God. Someday when my time comes, I’ll join her and Dad and many others who chose to believe that Jesus is the Son of God. He is our redeemer.

  1. Your mother has a kind face. I know you miss her, but few daughters have more than 99 years with their mothers. Mine died just after her 96th birthday, and I am grateful we had such a long time with her.

    My Aunt Cecilia will reach 100 on March 28, and I plan to do a blog post in her honor.

    • Thank you, Marian. I think that picture was taken when Mother was 97. She had a young look about her for being so old. Only my last visit did she look old! I just didn’t take any pictures of her then. She always wanted to ‘look good’ and she did!
      I’m waiting to read about your Aunt Cecilia… 🙂
