Our Family Grieves

My 91 year old Mother has not been feeling well for the past week. Monday she was sent to the hospital. Overnight she took a turn for the worse. Pneumonia, renal failure and a host of other ailments have taken the better of her. We were all there last night to admit her to hospice and they tell us she won't last the week.
Mom and Dad were married this very day in 1940. We are hoping she won't suffer any more and will get to spend her 70th anniversary with Dad.
