My mother passed away

It breaks my heart to tell you all, but my mother passed away early Wednesday morning. Her long, hard, painful battle with cancer is over and she is now at peace.

My mother introduced me to all things Disney and I am not sure how I will ever be able to return to Disney World without crying. I hope the good memories of my childhood trips with my mom will keep me strong and will bring some added meaning to my future trips.

My mom was the bravest, strongest, person I have ever known. I doubt I will ever meet another who's courage could match hers.

She was my very best friend. My mommy. I find comfort in the knowledge that if I am in this kind of pain, it means she no longer is.

Go hug your children and your mothers.

This photo was taken on her birthday this past March in Downtown Disney. I think it's the last photo ever taken of us together. I'm so glad we did that trip.


  1. I am so sorry for your loss! My prayers are with you and your family. As you said, she is at peace now and in no more pain. I lost my dad that way and my mother to sepsis. It is a very hard time, I'm sure. Stay as strong as she was and you will get through this.

  2. Sending prayers(and hugs.)
