Loss of my Mother...

Hello... On June 19th, while I was vending at a show in Chicago... my mother, 62, lost her battle to colon cancer.  She was surrounded by those who cared so deeply for her, much love...and slept peacefully away after being in a coma for only a few hours...  My heart is broke and I will miss her dearly.  I do know she is in a much better place with no more cancer causing her pain & suffering.  I hope she is enjoying coffee and sugar cookies with Grandma Lily and the family... and is back with the love of her life... my dad...  

Once we returned from Chicago, I spent the next day gathering numerous photos and goods for her visitation.  My two daughters and I went and picked out mom's outfit together... we shared fond memories and many tears as we made our final choice.  Red it was- mom's favorite color!  And polka dots... Because anything polka dot always caught her eyes!  The next few days flew by, but not without a sewing inspired visitation, hearing about memories made with mom and an amazing turnout out of friends & family from near and far.  That evening we enjoyed a festive balloon release- followed by a private, lovely, graveside service the following morning.  Everything truly went beautifully!  My heart is happy -as my Mom was soooo LOVED!  

Before we left mom's {after digging up some of her flowers to bring home} we had to snuggle with the little kittens.... When my dad passed away, my great grandmother Lily, and now mom... baby kitties were born!  Isn't that amazing!!!  

Now we are home- just tonight we planted a flower bed in our back yard with flowers that were given in memory of mom...  I can't wait to share pics with you as it grows and as I add accessories to it!  My brother started a new flower bed there, too, in Fox!  Let's hope mom's green thumb rubbed off on my brother and I!

Here are a few pics from Mom's Celebration of Life!  Rest in peace momma...  I miss you sooo much already! Xoxo
