Rest in Peace, Sweet Aunt Addie!

My Sweet, Favorite Aunt passed away last night.  She was 90 years old.  She was like my 2nd Mother. 
Her Health had deteorated the past 2 years.  She was living in Assisted living, almost completely blind, and suffering from Dementia.  Three weeks ago she lost the ability to swallow and was very firm that she didn't want a feeding tube.  She was tired and ready to leave the bondage of her worn out body.  She has been in Hospice and was kept very comfortable and her passing was in her sleep. 

I am gong to miss her so much.  My mother is very upset but had prepared herself the best she could.
But we all know she is now free but that we will always feel her Love and hear her laughter.
Miss You So much, Aunt Addie!

Beth, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm never good with words but know I'm thinking of you and your mom and sending you both big hugs.

Wish I was there to give you a big comforting hug. I know how hard it is to let go of a loved one but we must take comfort in knowing that they are no longer in pain and in a much better place. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. xoxox
