Life begins

Life ends.

Dorothy Ethel Kane

Died in her sleep, at the age of 89.


For the next week,

We will be remembering our mother,

In a celebration of her long life.

Mom was feisty and pragmatic---

She’d say, “Get over it!  Life goes on!”


She was/is absolutely right.


Safe home, Mom, safe home.

    I do think going in your sleep is the best way though.
    I like her "get over it, life goes on" attitude.
