I think the hardest part at the end was when she was trying to say something and couldn't make the words come out. It broke my heart.
In a way there is relief knowing her confusion and suffering are over, but I miss her so much and I need one more hug.

I remember all of the classes we went to together, the things she taught me: quilting, ceramics, knitting,crochet, sewing my own clothes (I always had to get her to put the sleeves in for me). We had fun dragging our sewing machines up and down the stairs at the school to take a class. Mom would sneak my green-ware in to get fired along with hers. Her instructor must have thought she did nothing but ceramics. We would spend whole Saturday afternoons picking out patterns and colours for a quilt.

We dragged Stephanie all over with us to quilt shows and antique sales, even gave her lessons sewing her own dress. AJ joined us on a trip to Ottawa for Canada Day. It was the year it was so cold and windy the fireworks got cancelled. We got lost getting back to the hotel and left the kids in the car with a stranger so he could back it up into a stall. The pool we were expecting turned out to be a hot tub. We had a lot of fun that weekend and laughed and giggled into the night.

John and Todd always loved our holidays at the cottage. I think they both caught their first fish there.

Whenever I start to cry I make myself think of the memories I have with this wonderful, talented, beautiful lady I was lucky enough to call Mom.

I love Aunt Fran so much and she will be greatly missed by all that loved and knew her. When I think of Aunt Fran, I alway think about the time she came to Calgary after I got married and she was staying at Aunt Shirley's. I took my new husband over to meet her and her and Aunt Shirley stood there looking at him like a couple of schoolgirls swooning over him. LOL At that point I knew he was a keeper for sure if I got that seal of approval from my two favorite Aunts.

Too many memories to mention. As a little girl, I remember we visited Aunt Fran and Uncle Harvey in Belleville often on College St. Aunt Frances visited us a lot in Deseronto too. Her 65th surprise Birthday party given by my sister Frances who has been gone 25 yrs this yr. Many visits by the sisters Aunt Fran, Aunt Shirley, mom (Lorna) and Aunt Rita came from Toronto to meet at our house in Deseronto.
I miss those times. Bonnie, I know how hard it is to care for parent at end of life and sometimes when death comes it may seem like a blessing when age and illness takes over their personality and from the person we knew and loved. I know I silently have cried many tears over parents and siblings who have crossed over but also have been thankful and felt blessed to be with them when they died.
Bless your heart aunt fran.
And yours too Bon.
Cindy and family
