Thank You All

The abundance of love and well wishes are pouring in; and I can't tell you how much they truly mean to me.

Knowing how much mom was loved by so many makes me immensely happy. Even those who never met her could tell by her beautiful smile what an extraordinary and kind woman she was.

I am doing really well. I think I have caught up on my sleep, sleeping until 1 p.m. today! Sleep has always been my sanctuary. I'm feeling refreshed and at peace.

My family is beyond amazing and having them surrounding me is a Godsend. My friends are just as wondrous. Feeling your love has lifted my heart.

Thank you all so very much. I know she is looking down on us on this beautiful, sunny and crisp fall day and feeling our love spreading throughout the land in her honor. I can see that great big, magnificent smile.

You are's as simple as that:-) It does my heart good to hear that you are handling it all so well and that you are surrounded by loved ones. When I lost my dad, the one thing that really gave me comfort was knowing that he was no longer suffering. It's the same with your mom, she is at peace and in such a beautiful place:-) Love you my friend. xoxo

Oh My Goodness, Rosemary.... I didn't know. I have been out-of-town off and on for about 2 weeks and haven't kept up with others' blogs very much.

I am so very very sorry to hear about your mother. She had the prettiest smile of anyone I have ever seen. You are so blessed to have had her with you for as long as you did. My mother died in 1991 and I still miss her.

My sincere sympathy to you and your family. May God Bless you during this hard time in your life.

Much Love and Lots of Prayers,

Your Mom did, indeed, have the most wonderful smile. I'm so glad you shared her with us. We have your back, Ro. Hugs and love and wishing all of you well.

I will always remember the first time I met your Mom. She was smiling and I thought "how beautiful she is" and then I thought that you have that same beautiful smile! I Love You, Rosie!


Dear Rosemary: I haven't been online for a few weeks. The dreaded flu and now walking pnemonia. I'm so sorry. I always loved reading your posts about your sweet Mama. She reminded me of my own Mother who has been gone for 10 years now. My prayers are with you.

I've been thinking of you so very much these past few days. Glad you can sleep, glad you have your wonderful family around you to support you.

I've said it before, but I'll say it again -- your mom brought smiles to so many of our faces, everytime you showed a photo of her beautiful smile. I think she is looking down and smiling upon us all.

In e-mail, will you please send me her last name? I was going to make a donation to our food bank in her memory and I hate to put just "Lillie Sue." Although that's pretty darned good!
