Sad News: My mom passed away

I'm sad to say that my mom passed away on the 23rd of this month. So for the time being I won't be around much. There's so much to do right now but my family is with me.

My mom came over to my house on the 22nd for my daughter's birthday and she seemed fine. 8pm on the 24th my mom's PCA (Personal Care Attendant) called me and told me she hadn't seen my mom that day and asked if she might have gone for the weekend with one of my brother's or was picked up for a doctors appointment. I said no to both and told her I was going to call the police to have them break into her apartment and do a welfare check.

The police got there and called maintenance to let them in and called me back and informed me that they found my mother had passed away in her sleep in her own bed. The cororner told me that it looked like she got ready for bed, turned the tv on in her room and laid down and passed away that night.

It came as a shock to all of us because I had just seen her 2 days before and while she had numerous health problems, she was doing fine.

My brothers and I went and made the arrangements at the funeral home yesterday and her funeral is going to be on the 30th.

I'll be back in a week or two.
