My mom has passed away

She passed away from heart failure. It was so sudden and shocking, she was recovering fast from her heart attack, but in the last two days she was feeling very weak. I got the call from the nurse, the paramedics tried everything, but nothing worked. I am sure she is in heaven by the side of the Lord, reunited with her loved ones who passed away long time ago. I am sure she is relieved from all the illness and all she had to suffer through all this time. She was a very caring and loving mother, she took wonderful care of her husband and daughter. Thank you, friends and family for your support. I am taking it one day at a time, and creating some watercolored art, it always soothes my soul in difficult times.

Update on mom

Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you all know my mom is getting better slowly. She is off the ventilator, breathing on her own and she can eat and talk again. She is at a rehab center, learning to walk and do things by herself now. It is a slow recovery but she is improving day by day. I want to thank all my family and friends for your support and prayers, they are very much appreciated. I am slowly getting back into creating art, most of my time has been spent visiting mom, everyday. Good thing is, I can always take my work with me. Here is my newest aceo painting, wishing everyone a happy valentine's day!
