I love you Mom.

Kathy Ann Hartog 

June 8, 1950 – March 8, 2008

She died surrounded by her family. We held her and watched as she took her last breath. We waited with her for two hours until she was taken away. We said our good-byes.

I miss her already. So much.

    Words can’t explain the heartfelt sorrow we feel for you and your family’s loss. May you soon find the peace that you need.

    It’s beautiful that you were all there with her.

    Now she’s there with all of you.

    Let us know what we can help with. We love you.

  13. Jen,
    I am so very sorry for your family’s loss. Three years ago I stood beside my Dad as he, too, took his last breaths after a 8 month battle with lung cancer. I know the pain you are experiencing. God will get you thru it. There will be bad days, awful days, and some really good days where you remember her love and funny memories. Time does help and the pain won’t seem so raw as the days pass.
