My heart is full of sadness.
Yesterday (3/19/2012 Australian time) my 79 year and 1 month old mother, Therese Wright suddenly passed away in my sisters arms.
Mum was not ill.
Mum had a really good weekend with the grand kids and yesterday she had a good laugh with my sister and then in the afternoon she had difficulty breathing and when my sister got to her house she was in distress and left us as my sister held her.
The hardest thing has been that they kept mum at her house until I could get down here and say my goodbye. Seeing her laid out on the floor with her head on the pillow was heartbreaking for me.
I loved my mother dearly and spoke with her every day. I will miss her.
Her service will be on Friday and that will be a hard day.
Eternal rest grant unto her, Oh Lord.
May perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.
