It's been over two weeks now since Mom crossed over. The last few days have seemed strangely quiet. There is nothing more to say or to do. Days have become predictable again, scheduled and ordinary. It feels like emerging from the cellar after a howling storm has passed. Everything is suddenly still, but nothing will ever again be the same.
I want to thank everyone who left kind messages here and sent comforting emails. Knowing you were here, wrapping me in a virtual hug, made a big difference. I will always treasure your gentle support.
