I miss her so and it's only been a week. It's hard to believe I can't call and talk to her. I was glad I was able to spend a lot of time with her the last few weeks. It was hard to hear her talk and harder yet to see her struggle to eat, drink and just move but she loved to hold your hand. My sister Beverly is an occupational therapist who specializes in hands and took some wonderful pictures of people holding my mom's hand while she was visiting.

She was a wonderful mother but a fantastic grandma, aka Grandma Cookie. My 10 year old niece wanted to honor her and played the piano at the service. For a girl who's only taken about 2 years of lessons, she played Amazing Grace amazingly well. I couldn't talk at the service buy my two sisters did and an 'adopted' sister (neighbors of my parents when they lived in San Jose who my parents took under their wings) had the most wonderful touching and funny stories about my mom.
