Mandy's mom passed away a few weeks ago, and I have been avoiding blogging about it for some reason. Possibly, because it's still pretty raw and close to the surface for us. We're doing better but there is a lingering sadness. We were all able to be there as she passed--holding each other and holding her hand as she took some of her last labored breaths. It was a horrible, wonderful, blessed, scary, terrifying, beautiful day/week. Mandy seems to be doing well--better anyway. Looking at her mom's journals has been a healing--though sometimes hard, experience. Some of the family set up a blog to honor Mandy's mom, Susan. Check it out here.
