Auhtor Bonnie Leon & The Journey of Eleven Moons — 7 Comments

  1. Pam, I’m so sorry. I lost my father way back in 1975 and I still miss him. Every time someone passes my belief in the garden is reaffirmed. We weren’t meant to say good-bye. How comforting to know you mother went on to heaven with Jesus name on her lips.

    Bless you.

  2. Thank you, April. My mother is a blessing to her friends and the staff at Oak Park. But they are so good to her. I’ve made so many special friends since Mom moved in.

  3. Thanks for sharing your story, Bonnie.
    And Lyn, when I was in my thirties a friend’s father died and she said ‘Now I’m an orphan’. I thought that was a strange thing for a forty year old woman to say. And then I became an orphan. Now I understand.

  4. I lost my Dad 3 years ago on my Mom’s 80th birthday then 1 year later Mom gave up to kidney failure. I miss them both so much & wish I had asked them more about family. We don’t realize how precious someone is to you till they are gone. I begged Mom to continue dialysis but she said the night before she passed away that she was going to sleep with Dad. The next morning her last words were “yes Jesus”.

  5. You are so right, Sonya. We can’t take any of the days for granted, but need to cherish each one. Today might be our last opportunity to say what is on our heart. We should never wait to do the right thing.

  6. What a wonderful story of love. I know I love my mother and I am so happy to still have her, but realize things can always change quickly change. Have to take every day we get together!
