Mother lost her battle she fought it hard. She wanted to live but told me it was her time to leave this world and be with her loved ones that have gone on before. She was calling for her mom at the end I guess we always want our mothers when we are hurting. She was 83 and had lived a good life. She had 8 kids three had already left us. My sister died February of 2011 with colon cancer. My brother died in 2008 and my youngest brother died in 1970 due to drowning. It is so hard to let go of our loved ones but she was really suffering till the very last week. When we asked her if she was hurting she said no which was very strange. Then she no longer needed food and Hospice told us do not force her at that point to eat offer it and she refuses that is ok. I have four siblings left and we were all around her bed and her home when she passed. She wanted to stay in her home. I thank god we were able to give her that wish. I am sure the days will get easier but this is a hard one. Thanks for letting me express how I feel right now.
