Jack’s Walk – A short Admin Note

Late yesterday afternoon, my mother died peacefully in the company of her best friend and myself. Mom’s been inching toward death since mid-August, and while I’m sad that her life has ended, I’m relieved to have her dying ended.
We’ll be having a short service followed by burial on Friday afternoon, so Jack and I will be taking the rest of this week off. We both hope that you have a Merry Hallowe’en, and we’ll see you again on Monday, November 4th.

    My condolences. I remember that feeling well from when my grandma died, relief mixed with grief. I’m sure having you by her side these last months of her life meant a lot to her. Now it’s time to take care of yourself, please take as much time as you need. ♥

    My sincere condolences. I lost my mother earlier this year and felt the same mix of grief and relief.

    I am sorry to hear this, but I understand the mixture of sorrow and relief that you feel. It was the same way for me with both of my parents. Take good care of yourself.
