Janet D. Nase
My Mom died today. She and her best two friends from high school died within three months of each other.
There never was a lovelier woman than my mother. Never said a bad word about anyone. Could dance like a dream. Never criticized my child rearing. Always looked ready to go out to dinner but without any fuss. Rarely complained about her constant medical problems.
She was ecstatic when Obama won. Believed in all the right (to my mind) causes.
She loved mysteries, news shows, her family, her friends. Who will I call everyday now?
Her last words: "I feel sort of joyful."
