Dear Beth, Alix, Linda,
Mom passed away this morning at 10:40. She was a very religious person and I think that she would have liked the idea of leaving this earth on Good Friday. It is hard for those who are left behind, but she is at peace now and not suffering.
My brother from Australia and South Africa will not get here until Monday. This will be the first time since 1965 that all nine of us will be in the same country.
I am eternally grateful to Duncan and Patti for allowing me to leave my job for a short while to be with my mom and family. Thank you to all of you for taking on the extra work in my absence. I am grateful to the staff and parents for all their support.
I will keep you posted. Please pass on the information to the staff and parents.
Thanks again for all your help.
