My mom`s death

My mom passed away peacefully in her sleep Tues.afternoon in my brother`s home,where she has been living since Dec.when she fractured her pelvis.We gave up alot of our personal time,especially my brother who was at home with her all the time.I live minutes away & went down to help also.It was all worth it to have her here with us that last time of her life.
I took her cats down Tues.morn,& my brother put up the windows in her room .I remember thinking about the tale of the soul leaving when the window is open.She seemed really tired that day,so it struck me about the open window.She died that afternoon napping in the easy chair with her 2 cats,Pumpkin & Mittens,who were living with me & will continue to do so.
I may be offline for awhile.I accepted it till today,today I had to have her clothing in to the funeral home by 8am & was unable to do it in that amt.of time.Her burial is set for tomorrow.I kinda lost it as I have NEVER had any trouble picking out her clothes,I bought them all the time.What through me off was the fact that the inside of her casket is pink.I lost it on the way to my doc`s appt.-I still have the pnemonia-& the doctor & staff where I go really helped to console me.I did eventually find her clothes that I am satisfied will be ok.So long for awhile....
