Mom’s Obit

Filed under: Doris Update — by thepluckygastronome @ 1:55 pm

Here’s the link to Mom’s obituary in her local paper.  Funeral is Saturday at 10 a.m. Chandra will be reading a message from me during the service. It is entitled: Things I Learned  From My Mother.

We are sad and missing her already.  I went back for more chemo yesterday. Mother made me promise that I would make my health my first priority. “Don’t even think about sneaking on an airplane and coming out here.” she said.

I think we made arrangements to have the service videotaped. I’ll have to make myself content with that. I’m talking on the phone more frequently with my sibs. It’s nice. I’ve already called my sister “mommy” by mistake twice and my brother is oh so good and making me laugh.

Thank you everyone for the words of support, the flowers and cards. Especially your prayers. I’ll make it through this week, and then carry on. That’s what Mom expects. That’s what I’ll endeavor to do.  I just have to be brave.



  1. Love you Echo!

  2. Awesome attitude and resolve, Echo. I do hope that you post your “Things I Learned from My Mother” –somewhere. I would like to read it. I do pray for you and all your family. –Kimberly

  3. Dear Echo, the words you will share with all via Chandra will lift everyone’s hearts and will share such lovely vivid clips and images from your mother’s life that will be of such comfort and delight. You have such a way of sharing. You’ve been in our thoughts and prayers. I know it’s so hard to be so far away from everyone, especially at a time like this. Thank goodness for videos and Skype and wonderful texts and other technology. And just knowing that you are so very much loved by all there. And even from those who love you from afar.
    You are in my prayers,
    Marsha (Chandra’s sister)
