This morning our mom passed away. She laid peacefully in her bed with family by her side. Momma loved her bed and her house. It was just where she wanted to be. The love Mom was surrounded with was incredible. Not just that of the family but from her nurses, sitters and the wonderful ladies from Hospice. There are so many kind people in this world. I'm thankful for all of them.
Our family was blessed to be able to be with mom in the past couple of days. We were all able tell her we love her and she would smile and mouth 'Love you, too'. Knowing we were saying goodbye and Mom knowing we were there by her side made her passing as comfortable as possible.
Thank you all for your prayers. When details of the memorial are finalized, we will make them public.
Darrell Waltrip tweeted the following statement.
'Mom went home to be with Jesus this morning, we had her for 90 wonderful years, we were all there this morning, thanks for your prayers,"
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Waltrip family. The Waltrip family will find comfort as they grief. The last days of their mother's life they were all at her side. The family was able to assure her of their love. She also left them all knowing that she loved them too.
The death of a parent is painful but those last days of comfort and love shown to their mother will serve to help them after the first few days are over.
