Default Another purr request

Last night, my dear wife's Mom passed away. She had had Alzheimer's for
about 5 years and had been slowly going downhill. In some ways it was a
relief that she was out of her suffering, but it's always hard to "let Mom
go". Her Dad had passed away last April so it was just her Mom.

Ramona (DW) had been going down for two months 3 times a year to give her
older sister some respite from tending to their mother (we live in Seattle,
WA, USA - northwest corner of the "lower 48") and her parents live in
Alabama (Southeast US). She's been doing this for about 4 years now, and
had been down staying with her Mom for almost a month this trip.
Fortunately, she was there during Mom's "final moments". When her Dad
passed away, she was here (Seattle) so she didn't really get to "say
goodbye" in quite the same way.

Anyway, any purrs and prayers of comfort you can spare would be greatly
appreciated.
Sam

I'm sorry to hear about your MIL. It's good that Ramona could have
been with her in her last days. It's strange, but it's somehow been
more of a comfort to me when it happens that way. Purrs for you and
your family.

Purrs are on their way. Losing a loved one is never easy, even when it
is obviously a release for the loved one. I'm glad Ramona was there at
the right time.

Purrs to you, too. It must be traumatic to lose a sibling, especially
when you didn't have a chance to say goodbye.

I'm so sorry to hear that Sam. I'm sending all of the prayers I received
this week straight up to you and Ramona.
