My mom died tonight.
There’s no sadness, though. At least, not yet. It’s more a sense of relief than anything.
Her final months were tough. A lifetime of smoking and other bad habits made it so that she had to take breathing treatments every four hours, all of the time.
Remember when they remodeled the Amherst Drug Mart recently? She paid for that with her prescription purchases.
She had a good life and now she’s beyond having to deal with things.
There will be no service or memorial, as per her request. If you couldn’t see her when she was here, well now’s too late. That’s probably how she would have said it.
