Saturday Morning 6:07 am

Saturday morning at 6:07 am my dear mother passed away from cardiac arrest. Her death was completely unexpected and Steve and I are in shock. My heart is broken and I can't possibly explain the levels of emotions that are running through my head and heart. My mother was a devout Catholic. She believed with no doubt that there is a heaven and she did everything she could to assure her spot.

Until this happened I would say that I would be lucky to have the faith of a mustard seed. Now with her gone, I am trying to find my faith again. This experience seems to be bringing me closer to faith. I want now more than ever to believe, I will see her again. I can't stop crying and in fact I don't want to stop crying. I want to cry until there are no more tears left in my body either that or just die and go and be with her but then I would miss my husband and brothers, all my other family members and friends.

It is the love of my family and friends that is helping me through this. Tomorrow would be my mother's 66th birthday. I have a gift for her. She wanted me to wait and give it to her on her birthday. I wanted to give it to her early because it was a really warm pair of pajamas. It has been so cold lately and I wanted her to wear them. I could have gotten her another present to open on her birthday. She wouldn't let me give her the jams. She did not know what it was but she did not want one single gift early. A friend of hers sent her a Christmas present. I have not opened it yet. I am going to wait until Christmas. Whatever it is I plan to put it with the urn I purchased for her today.

I loved her, her name is Mary and she had a big heart.
