My Mother crossed over yesterday. She was a fighter but was at the point where she felt that fighting was only going to prolong her suffering. In my selfishness I wanted her to continue to fight. I understand her need to rest. She is with my Dad now and no longer suffering. I cling to my wife, my brothers and my sister now in my time of need. My Pagan brothers and sisters mean a lot to me too, that means all of you on this site. Enjoy your lives and the lives of those you love. I used to call my Mother everyday and visited her almost every day, she never had dementia or alzheimers and it is very sad to have seen the physical deterioration of the strongest woman I have even known. Unfortunately I cannot call her to tell her how much I love her. Take this as a warning, if you love someone, tell them now.
