Glenda Williams tells about caring for her aged mother and watching her pass into the next life.

It is hard for me not to have death, departure, and the other side on my mind these days, and rightfully so, after just losing my mother whom I had cared for full-time for over six years. She had lived in our home over ten years. We were always close, but those precious years made us grow even closer. A few years ago I started journaling things mother said and did and shared them on Facebook, a social media on the Internet. People fell in love with mother and looked forward to reading the almost daily posts. Now they write to tell me how much they miss reading them.
In my thoughts about death, departure, and the other side, I think about the thoughts we have when a person dies. There may be rejoicing because “the old coot is finally gone and out-of-the-way,” or because they are “out of their pain,” or because we know they are now happy in their long-awaited home in heaven. There may be happiness because we know we will be reunited with them and all the saved ones in glory.
