These past 2 weeks...

These past 2 weeks have been a blur, and if you've been wondering why I haven't been posting, this will explain. My mother reached the end of her 22 year journey with breast cancer on September 19th. I am posting her obituary too, and if you knew her I hope it'll make you smile, and if you didn't, I hope it will make you wish you had. When she wanted to do something, nothing stood in her way, regardless of her health or mobility issues.

I also hope this post will reach out to those of you who could benefit from a mobility aid, but are hesitant to use one. My TravelScoot enabled me to be with my mother the last week of her life much more than I could have managed without it. I didn't have to be concerned with where I parked, how many trips I made through her large nursing home, or where I needed to go to take care of the arrangements afterwards. I truly do not know how I would have managed without it.

This photo was taken in June when my sister Rae Lyn and I took our mom out for a day on wheels. Rhonda, our photographer, was on a TravelScoot too.
