Mom's deathbed jewelry
This is the jewelry Mom was wearing when she was taken off of life support on February 10, 2006. After we had all said our goodbye's, I carefully removed her earrings. She was wearing a sterling silver hoop, a
black pearl stud darkened silver ball and a cz stud. Mom always liked a little sparkle. The wooden cross had been placed in her hand by the hospital chaplain. Although none of us saw Mom as a religious person, we left it anyway.
This Thursday marks the 5 year milestone of her death. May not seem like much, but it has hit me like a ton of bricks. Really, shouldn't there be a commemorative coin or something?
