Last week my sister and I were given the news, we knew would come one day soon. It's something we have faced as we watched our Mother slowly ebby away. Both her and my step-dad are in the final days of their lives. We do not relish the fact of this loss, but realize that we can't live forever. Mom, has been placed in Hospice and given at least 6 months at the most. All arrangements have been made for this time and we hope it will be a process with no trauma. God, is our strength in the days to come.
