Remembering Mom

JMH Feb 21, 1946 – March 29, 2021

Before: pain, suffering, confusion, illness.

Hospice: comfort, pain-free, transition, enough

After: grief, joy, hope, faith

To borrow from Auden (and my sister) Hear, o earth and trees: Today receive an honored guest. Janet May comes here to rest. Receive her, embrace her.

Hear, o sky and sea and sand: Today receive an honored guest. Janet May comes here to rest. Receive her, embrace her.
