Mom

I mentioned yesterday that we've had a crazy few days. I try to keep my blog posts upbeat and positive. Today I'm sharing sadness with you.
My mom passed away Sunday morning. Mom and dad were in Myrtle Beach. We got Beth a plane ticket right away and she was in Myrtle Beach Sunday night.

I'm sharing with you because many of you know my mom. She worked in the store when we first opened. I blog a lot about my family so you've heard stories about her.

I'm also sharing so you understand why I will be in and out for the next few weeks. There could be tears and I might not be myself. Cathy, Lynn and Alex will be in the store and I will be there as much as I can.

We know that she is in heaven. We know that she is no longer in pain. But it's hard. It happened suddenly so we didn't get to say goodbye. I am very thankful that I called her Saturday night before I went to bed and said good night.
We've shed a lot of tears and have had a few laughs as well.

Beth flew from Buffalo to Charlotte. She had a very short time to make her connection. She let me know that she landed and was rushing to another terminal for her flight to Myrtle Beach. I checked online and her flight was slightly delayed. She had time to use the washroom. We were talking as she was walking and continued when she went into the stall. It was one of those days. She sat down and said "*%%$)__^$$ I don't have any toilet paper." We hung up and she called me back when she was walking through the terminal. She said "Mom was looking out for me. I had packages of Kleenex in my pocket".

We love you mom.

Julie,

I feel so sad for Beth, you and especially your Dad. This will be hard on him. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. Take care and I want you to know I always thought about, and will continue to think of, your Mom when I go past the original store on Fennel.

Take care.
Hugs to you both.
