Today, my mother passed beyond the veil. She had been bedridden for over a year, and was frustrated that she would likely never walk again. Mary Patricia Morehouse was a vibrant, wonderful soul who took people into her heart and helped them to find a friend – family, that they might not have had, or had been missing. She was one of the most generous people I ever knew. In the last 15 to 20 years, she had become more like a sibling, and we shared the most wonderful talks on politics, religion and damn near anything else we set our minds to talking about. I am grateful that she was able to meet the boyfriend several times before leaving this world.

I celebrate the fact that she’s now with the rest of her family and friends who have passed, and that she can now run and jump and dance without illness or pain.

May those of you who are restless find comfort and love. Thank you to everybody who has shared their kind words with me. They have helped more than you know.
