My Mom was a fantastic artist, we have all of her artwork to enjoy. Her last picture she was working on was for me, and she did not get it finished, but I am going to hang it up the way it is in my house, she was so sick when she was working on it, but she kept on pushing herself. Her courage and strength were amazing she is a true hero!

One of the very last pictures I had taken with my Mom before she died, she was very very sick here, but still had not told us she was. It breaks my heart, this was taken on Memorial day! She died July 23.

I have said that I have left my mom's room the way it was when she left for the hospital December 23 2010.  I frequently spray her perfume around the room and then I curl up in her bed and cry.  I also pat on some of the powder she used just to find a second of comfort.

I am so glad you posted a picture of your mom on here Judy.  What a wonderful way of honoring her and sharing her with us.  I have to find my moms picture and will share too!

I've got better photos of my mother, but this one was accessible. You can't see her gorgeous green eyes:

Reading the comments that have been posted since I've been gone is just heart-wrenching. We are all in so much pain, and some of the wounds are still so fresh. Even those who've been without their moms for over a year are suffering. I wish I had some words of encouragement to offer; even if I did, they would probably not be soothing enough to make the pain any less... I went through my mother's make-up and hair stuff, plus some shoes & purses when I was staying with my father during/after his surgery. I knew he was having a hard time facing that chore. Poor man. He just fell apart. And after I'd gotten him settled down, I fell apart. With every item of Mother's that I touched, I could see her looking so beautiful and then see how she looked as she lay dying. It's such a cruel juxtaposition of images. She always thought she wasn't pretty, but she was. I don't know how I'm going to be able to unpack all of her things, either. I brought so much of it home.  And there are still her clothes & jewelry to deal with... Casey is turning out to be quite a handful. The adoption agency over-estimated his age by quite a lot. He needs intensive training as well as the company of other dogs. He has abundant energy, and I do not!

Ugh I'm missing my mom so bad today, and I'm so tired of other peoples parents. UGH

P.S. I love the name "Fawnfeather," it's very beautiful.
