Farewell to My Beloved Mother

My mom died last Monday, after a very long disease. She was 83. All the health personal and helpers took great care of her till the end. I saw her only a few hours before her death, I think she recognized me once again, but as she started to suffer she was given some morphin, so she left in her sleep.
She will be cremated on Monday, Oct.26 at Valenton at 10am, then her urn will join my father's in our family grave at the Old Cemetery of Charenton-le-Pont.
Her dear cat Pomponnet is with us now.

This portrait is of course an old one ; my Dad made it, in 1947 or 1948 I think, when they were a young couple. That's my favourite, as it was theirs.

Love
It is hard to lose a parent. You suddenly realize you really are a grown up in a way that nothing else does. Take care.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU
I thank all of you, my dear friends, it's so good to know you're thinking of me and your good vibes will accompany me tomorrow. I'll probably be alone for the cremation, though there should be an old couple at the cemetery who knew both Mom and Dad. So it will be as if you're all beside me. Thank you, once again, with all my heart.

I am so sorry for your loss, Kand. I'm glad you have that beautiful portrait of her and I hope your memories of her will comfort you in the days ahead.
