My mother we diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. My sister and I with the help of hospice took her home to die. After hours of being in the dying process I placed my arm around her neck and told her I loved her and I was going to moistion her mouth and she looked at me as to say something, she smiled with her beautiful eyes and passed in my arms. She was at complete peace and exuded pure love. Although I will never ever stop missing her I know she was at peace, at home surrounded by the ones who loved her and extremely happy. Today my children know my wishes to pass in the very same way . Life, from birth to death, is an amazing process and all should understand this .
