This is a beautiful tribute to your mom. I generally do not get weepy but this got me.

Wishing for healing peace for you and your family.


All my love and best wishes to you and your family. And thank you for sharing your lovely tribute to your mom.

Janine Le Cras

I am so sorry for your loss, what a beautiful tribute to you Mum. I lost my Mum to cancer at the end of last year so I have some idea what you are going through.

A lovely tribute, and thank you for sharing your Mom with us this way. Knowing how special you are, your Mom must have been a wonderful person.

Gloria Ross

I am so sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing your mom through your blog. It is a beautiful tribute and really shows her essence.My heart aches for you. Losing our moms is so hard. Love to you and your family.

What a beautiful tribute to your Mom. Tears in my eyes. Her smile is so happy. Blessings to you and your family.

Sue Barker

Oh, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom. What a lovely tribute -- I'm sure she will never be forgotten by the family that she loved... Warm healing thoughts coming your way.

Susan J. Tweit

Serene Corner it truly was. I'm so glad she had you and Beth and Becka and the rest of the family (love those photos of her and the family!), and that you had her too. Blessings and much love coming your way....

Karen Poore

My thoughts are with you.


That last photo is particularly lovely. Take care of yourself.

Lynn Hershberger

So sad. You honor her well with your words and images. I wish I didn't know about loss and grief. What I do know is: the feelings come and go as waves, and we're not in charge of when, how big, and how long. I had a big deal day 23 years after my father died.

The world does not always understand. Be kind to yourself, share (as you did beautifully here) with safe people who do understand. And when you have a glimpse of joy in the midst of grief waves, do not feel that the joy betrays the person you lost. Allow all feelings in the same day.

Hugs to you and yours. The way will be a little crooked back to a new sort of normal. Somehow you will adjust, but you will never stop loving or missing her.

Deb, I'm so sorry about your loss. What a beautiful tribute. Thanks for sharing. I lost my father late in 2012, and he was born in Dec. 1923. I still miss him so much but he is always with me, as is your mother always with you.
Peace, Kate

Deb, you don't know me. I've been a fan since a friend of mine recommended your dvd about endangered sheep.

I am so sorry for your loss. My parents died many years ago, but I miss them dearly, still. As many have said here, your post is such a beautiful account of your mom's life!

Take care, and know that there are strangers (I started typing strange people, but reconsidered) thinking good thoughts for you.



What a beautiful post. All will be well again.
