Hi everyone,

So many of you have been so very sweet sending your thoughts and prayers for our family. My mother passed away at 12:15 a.m. on Saturday (just after midnight Friday night).

My daddy and I were with her right over her and talking to her and telling her we loved her just as she took her last breath. Her strong heart continued to beat for about a minute longer....and then she was gone. I don't think I've ever faced anything harder in my whole life. She and my daddy have been married almost 63 years...he was sobbing that his beloved Ruthie was gone. My 2 older brothers came down immediately from where they live near Athens which is about 30 miles away from Madison, GA where we were.

I went ahead yesterday and helped move my daughter who is a freshman at UGA into her dorm room.....the very same dorm that MY mother and daddy moved me into 31 years ago. Talk about the circle of life.

We came back to Macon last night and I slept for 12 straight hours. Her obituary is in the Athens Banner-Herald newspaper today and is online at onlineathens.com. In her honor and memory, I am posting it here. (One major thing that we omitted that I'm kicking myself about is that she is a graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in English..paid for by the GI Bill.)

I can never thank all of you enough for your many thoughts and prayers for my family.

With love,
Laura Jane

Laura Jane, my warmest and most sincere condolences at the passing of your beloved mother. May she rest in peace.

This has been a tough year for Peach Heads losing their mamas. I hope it'll be a while before we have anyone else have to make a post like LJ's.

God bless those of us who are now "motherless children."

Those of you who still have your mamas, hug them tight, tell them you love them, don't take them for granted.
