My darling, sweet 91 year old mom passed into heaven peacefully on the morning of November 13th.  Just a few days before her death, she and I had walked around Hobby Lobby to enjoy the Christmas decorations and then enjoyed a little Frosty at Wendy's.  Just the night before she passed, she had gone to a program at Legacy Village in Layton where she's lived for the past two years, and enjoyed singing and clapping along to the music.

She had a beautiful, full life and I feel so privileged to be her daughter and to have been able to be with her so much over the past 10 years since she and dad moved to Davis County.  It's fun to think of the fabulous reunion that she must have had with her two brothers, two sister, mom, dad, and countless other friends and relatives who've gone on before her.

I will miss her so much, but am grateful to have enjoyed her for such a long, long time.  LOVE YOU MOM!

At DUP Company Jubilee today, there was a little tribute to all the DUP Camp members who had passed away this year. Our Mom was one of those honored and I remembered yet anew all the good things she was involved in through her life, even into her aging years. Love and miss that lady! thanks for your post.
