Mary passed away Monday night at , surrounded by her family. She died peacefully in my arms.
During the last two weeks the pains in her abdomen were getting more intense and she was feeling weaker every day. On Sunday, May 22nd her friend Barbara drove her to her daughter’s baby shower. I don’t know how she made it through the day as she was already feeling very ill. On Monday she stayed in bed almost the entire day. Early Tuesday morning she was feeling nauseous and light headed and at I took her to the emergency room at Jeff. She was admitted right away. Tests for signs of infection were negative. It was the cancer that was taking its toll. After talking to her oncologist she decided to stop all further treatments. On Friday we moved her to the hospice of the University of
. A nice, new facility with 20 rooms and friendly staff. There she was kept comfortable. She was ready. Pennsylvania
Mary gave me the best 8 years of my life. I miss her terribly.
