The only thing hubby wanted for his birthday this year was to spend it with his mother. She has been in a nursing home 4 hours away for the past month but he took the day off and made the drive up to see her.
This is a picture of them on his birthday last week.
She passed away early yesterday morning. It is always somewhat of a shock even when you know it is coming, but she is no longer in pain and his parents are reunited in Heaven. I know he takes comfort in that knowledge.
They raised him up to be a fine man and a wonderful husband and father, and for that, I am grateful.
