Another Mom in Heaven

Kevin's mom (my mil), Loraine (but we called her Leak), passed away on Monday. She was the sweetest most outgoing woman I had ever met. She told me once that she was shy when she was younger, but I didn't believe her. She could strike up a conversation with anybody. She was very sweet and loving. She used to swaddle up my kids when they were babies and rock and rock them. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about...8 years ago...maybe a little longer. She did very well up until about the last year or so. Then she slowly forgot who we were and became a little more fragile. We've missed her for awhile now, and now even more. But she no longer has to be confused or afraid, she is at peace in her new loving home.

SO sorry for your loss, and glad you have the comfort that she is with the Savior in a beautiful place.

Sounds like she was an amazing woman. :)

I lost my mom a year ago last August. I miss her very much, but one day I will go to where she is. :o)

I dread losing my MIL...She is so very dear to me.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Even with having "lost" her already to Alzheimers, i'm sure it is still hard to no longer have her in this world. I'll be praying for your family as you deal with this loss.

Coming in late, although I posted on Austin's blog. I was gone and unable to read blogs.

I'm sorry for your loss and understand about losing them before they are physically gone.
