Love & Death

My mother, Elizabeth V. O'Brien, crossed over at the age of 97 in the early morning of May 23, 2008. Her daughters and granddaughters were with her most of her last weeks.

During the entire process of her dying, I have felt cradled in love and light coming from far and near, from many directions . This love has helped me to undergo this rite of sitting vigil, letting go, and mourning (just begun) as well as possible. For this I am deeply grateful.

I know I wrote to you privately, but here's still more love, coming your way.

What is remembered, lives.

Many Blessings to you for a gentle journey through this grief, which for some of us has been (even at our age) the last rite of passage into adulthood. Many Blessings to your Mother in whatever's next for her.

Much love and light and laughter to you both, and all your Beloveds
