I lost my Mum this afternoon up at the Veterans Home in Scarborough. She was 97. She had a full life. She was a Bates grad, served in the Marine Corps during WWII, stationed at Camp Pendleton. Full of life right to the end, and we all had, had a great visit just yesterday with family coming and going.

I'll miss her, she was truly one of a kind. I don't know of too many other Mums who would turn off the stove, don their boondockers and accompany their son on an early morning hunting foray in the back field because he really wanted to go, but was too young at the time and had to be accompanied by an adult.

I'll always have great memories.

Sorry for your loss. Never easy. My mother died quite a few years ago, 3 hours after all of us, her 3 children and others, had just had a great dinner on Easter Sunday. We were thankful she was very happy and content the day she died. Great that your mother was too.
