Some of you know my mom from my posts and some have experienced her in my play and some know her in person (or through her food 🙂 When after 17 years of ex-gay strugglings and I came out to her, she responded, “It’s about time.”
Earlier today with her children around her and her husband of 50 years, my mom left us after two years of battling cancer. She died at home without any life support, just family support.
I appreciate all the kind words and thoughts and well wishes. It was an incredibly peaceful passing, and I am so proud of us as a family how we cheered her on and supported her to the end.
We thought she had left us at 3 AM when she stopped breathing, but she fooled us and hung out for another 9 hours. In the words of my dad, “She is a tough bird”. Yes, that and so much more.
