My mother passed away peacefully last week.
We were able to grant her wish to keep her at home, right to the very end.
Before her candle went out she lit my candle, and will forever be the spirit within me.
This song was her choice as her message to us all.
my thoughts are with you and wish you peace and many fond memories,
I am sorry and my thoughts are with you. These are difficult times.
Keeping you in my good thoughts and wishing you peace.
Elizabeth, Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your beautiful mom. I didn’t know she was so near the end, but I’m glad to hear her passage was peaceful. Hugs, my friend ❤
Yes, it was as peaceful as it could be.
Thank you for your kind thoughts.
What a beautiful spirit she has lit in you Elizabeth.
My heart embraces you and your family sending light and love to support you.
Let us all live by the words of her song and create a world of love, one for another, all over this world.
She certainly wanted that for all of us. It is up to all of us to live up to that now.
Thank you for your kind message.
My condolences. My heart is with you and your family at this time. Sending you much love and support as you remember her, celebrate the love she instilled and shared with you, and allow it emanate from you as you carry her spirit within you always. xo
Yes, her spirit will forever live within me, and I am so grateful that I had her for as long as I did. Thank you for your love and support, which I also feel. It means a lot to me.
Wonderful words to live by. What a gift Elizabeth.
Sending light and lightness in this time of grief and remembrance.
Thanks so much Val. Much appreciated.
I’m so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing, Elizabeth. It sounds as though you’ve had a tight bond with her, so I’m sure you will continue to feel her presence in your life. Sending you love and light as you transition through this blessed, but difficult, time of your life. XOXO
(My apologies, too, for not staying up-to-date on reading all your posts. I’ve been deep in another project that doesn’t allow me too much time for my blogging world right now.)
Thanks so much for your love and light. It has helped me to know there are those who care for me. xoxo
(Glad to hear that you have a project that is absorbing you.)
Hugs for you my friend. Elizabeth that’s one of my favourite verses. There is nothing greater than love. ❤
And the love of a mother, the greatest of all, I think.
yes, it is a beautiful verse and I am so glad that she shared with us that it was her favourite, and wanted to give us that as her message for going forward in life.

I am so sorry! My thoughts are with you.
Thank you for your kind thoughts.
So sad to hear this, but hope you have some comfort in the thought that she went peacefully, and with so much love. We only have one mother.Hugs xx
Even though we were prepared that it was coming, it was very quick, in the end. Selfishly we wanted more time. We are comforted by the fact that it was peaceful in the end, and we are grateful for the last eight months of family togetherness that we had. Thanks for your kind words of support.
Many blessings to you and your family Elizabeth. Her spirit will live on in all of you. 🙂
Thanks so much for your support and kind words.
I’m sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I know how much she is in your heart, but I know that she is at peace. I’m thinking of you, knowing of your inner strength to find the way forward for you and all of your family. My love to all of you.
I am comforted that she is at peace and that we were able to keep her at home, which is what she wanted. Thanks for your support. It means a lot to me.
May you be comforted by knowing she went peacefully. Mu thoughts are with you. Love, Uta
Thanks so much.
Please accept my sincere condolences Elizabeth. Wishing you peaceful blessings! Fred
Thanks for your support.
I am so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing, Elizabeth. I had her in my prayers, along with a fellow blogger, Luanne Castle’s father.
This was not too long from when you posted, so am relieved not to have come too late to join your friends who are wishing you condolences.
You were the blessing for the whole family to feel relief when you took up caring for your mother. I admire how you shared your time and spent so many hours with your mother. This will always make you feel closer than ever to her, along with relieved you chose to do this. Sometimes, when a special loved one dies, we live with regret. You will have a heart filled with happy memories, along with missing her daily. I am saddened for your loss. Hugs, Robin
Thanks for your kindness. It means so much to me.
So glad you expressed this and shared this with us all. We want to support you and be there for you. Have you felt her hugs and whispers that she loves you? I know or believe in this possibility, Elizabeth. Hope it doesn’t upset you to hear the possibility of her angel’s wings blowing by your cheek. Hugs, Robin
