When the end is near, the final chapter

Posted Thursday, October 13, 2011, at 6:15 PM

My Mother Evelyn Pratt, a veteran  of WW2, passed from this earth this morning. She went in peace and with dignity. Her ashes will be interred in the Veterans Cemetery as they should be. My many thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

First of all, I am sorry to hear of your mother's passing, it is not ever easy no matter how peaceful. A dear old friend of mine (Korean War Vet, 80 years old) recently passed away very peacefully after living a full long life. At the time there were alot of tears until his funeral and burial at the Veterans Cemetery. There was a sense of peace the moment we got out of the cars, none that I have ever felt in any other cemetery. You made a fine choice for her.

Again, I am sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. In the days to come, I hope that the good memories that you have shared with your mother will comfort you.

I hope that she told you great stories of the Military. They would make good blogs when you feel up to it.

I lost my dad two years ago. Very hard even when you expect it.

Your blogging friends are there for you!

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
