Default Thea (Peace's mom)

Well, it's happened. Thea Greenhalgh, the best mother ever, beloved sister, aunt, cousin, and friend, passed away peacefully this morning at 8:12. After fighting hard for the past several days and finally moving her to hospice last night, this morning she had very poor vitals. They couldn't even get her blood pressure. I opened the blinds to let the light in and sat with her alone, holding her hand. I told her that I loved her and that she will always be with me and that she could go and leave this broken body and be one with the universe. She opened her eyes for the first time in 36 hours and let go.

I'm totally devastated but also relieved that she is out of her suffering. It just all happened so happened so fast I can hardly believe it. I am going to miss her so much.

My heart is broken but I am grateful that she is finally at peace.

I am so sorry for the loss of your Peace. I know your heart is broken but I hope knowing that she is at peace...will give you some relief. I am so very happy that you were with her at the end and that is was so peaceful. Losing my mother in Feb was so hard and it was so fast that the shock stayed around for a while. Hugs and my thoughts are with you.

So sorry, Peace. You gave her everything you had and then some. Your mom was fortunate to have you at her side.
