Orphaned at 60+

Had a call this morning from my sister to tell me that my mother died last night.  I'm not sure what to feel right now, but am headed to the Detroit area to be with the family.  Ben took off work on this Black Friday to go with me -- he's wonderful.  If any family members are reading this, please give me a call so we can talk about stuff.

I am so sorry to hear about your mother. When my mother entered the door to the other existence I used this. I hope it helps you.

"Something has spoken to me in the night, burning the tapers of the waning year; something has spoken in the night, and told me I shall die, I know not where. Saying: "To lose the earth you know, for greater knowing; to lose the life you have for greater life; to leave the friends you loved, for greater loving; to find a land more kind than home, more large than earth- -Whereon the pillars of this earth are founded, toward which the conscience of the world is tending-a wind is rising, and the rivers flow."_-You Can't Go Home Again

I too am saddened to hear about your mother.
I am glad you two have each other right now. I hope your family/friends are good to each other.
