It is with great sadness that I post about the passing away of our mother Phyllis, aka Fuzzy Phil, at age 92. She passed away peacefully in her sleep on March 14. She had been missing my dad terribly and said she was ready to join him. I am happy for her since that was her wish, but sad for those of us she left here grieving her loss. Services will be in April so that all five of us children and various grandkids have a chance to make travel arrangements for Missoula. It will also be near their anniversary which mom would like.
Those of you who follow the blog know that our dad taught us to always look for the silver lining. Mine is that I’m here in Hawaii with the grandkids who keep me so busy that my mind is occupied with other things. It’s when they do something cute and I think, “I need to tell mom,” that the sadness hits.
