  •  I'm so very sorry for your loss, Lefty Coaster. (8+ / 0-)

    My mother passed on February 15, one month short of her 89th birthday.  She too was good-natured and sweet to the very end, and she never lost her smile, though she must have been in a great deal of pain that she rarely complained about.  She didn't have Alzheimer's, and she recognized us to the end, but mentally she was in a long, slow process of shutting down.  Saying goodbye is always so hard.

    If you have a lifetime of happy memories stored up, that will help.  And know that her love will always surround you.  The love never goes away.

    "Americans are a wonderful people: They will always do the right thing--after exhausting every other possible alternative."--Winston Churchill
