My mother, Jean, died last night.

Some of you knew her under her Craft name, Cameo.  Everyone who met her was impressed with her strength and grace. She was a true child of Brigid, as a nurse, as a mother, and as a woman.

We had been doing hospice care for her at home. She had one bad day, and when at the end of that day we were able to get pain control, she simply let go and passed away.

If you are moved to make remembrance of her, please light a candle in her name. If you can, send me a picture. Let’s light her way to the Uttermost West.

She asked that other remembrances be local acts of love and charity: thank a nurse, plant a tree, or donate to your local library.

Thank you all for your love and support.

  1. I am sorry to hear about your loss, however it sounds like she passed peacefully and was surrounded by loved ones. My stepfather passed away 10/10/2014. If I get home sometime today, I will light a candle and send you a picture. ❤

  2. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{Lit}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} I would be honoured to light a candle and perform a local act of charity to honour her (I’ll let you know how it goes). And remember: I’m here for you.
