My mom, Joan Patricia, was born on Oct. 23, 1934 and born to eternal life 76 years later on Feb. 16, 2011. The dash between those dates was filled with work, exercise, volunteering, loving her grandchildren, her three girls and my dad, Bernie Provencher. Mom went to her eternal resting home from her Florida home due to loosing her battle against the rare blood cancer, multiple myeloma (MM).
I was born on Mom’s birthday, Oct. 23, 1966 at about 4 p.m. causing her to miss eating cake at her party, but from there forward we always enjoyed celebrating our birthday together.
I moved to Colorado in 1997, we missed each other so much we talked every week. In 2007, mom was having trouble remembering things and balancing her checkbook. Something wasn't right so I flew home to take her to the doctor. She fought me the whole way. To appease me the doctor did some tests. A few hours later, I slide down the wall in despair. My Mom had cancer.
Paul and I moved in with my parents for three months to care for them. Dad had to have a hernia operation and mom was loosing weight and real sick from the chemo, radiation and treatments. Unfortunately, we had to get back to Colorado and leave the caregiving to my two sisters and the Grandkids.
We came back to help and visit as much as possible. In October of 2010, I was compelled to go back and be with her and Dad. I didn't know it would be our last birthday together. She was dying. Her bones were breaking, she didn't want to eat, she was in so much pain and she was tired of fighting so I told her it was okay to let go and run to Jesus.
Thank you. I love and miss you Mom. xxoo
