Our Booga has gone to the Other Side, and is now talking with her hubby, Pop, catching him up on all things earthly.
Her passing was quiet and peaceful and the way she wanted it. It has definitely been all on her terms the last few days. Yesterday, there was a scare and everyone ran to her bedside.
She told everyone to go home and get back to life! 'What, are you all going to do, stare at me, waiting for me to die? Now shoo!'
Booga was very clear that she was ready to go, and was going to do so very shortly, and that Pop was waiting for her to come. She even joked that he was starting to get impatient.
I am doing this entry in red, the color of her favorite shoes, leather flats, that she even wore for the last week at the hospital. Sometimes, in bed. Why have to fuss with getting them on and off all the time she asked?
The kids are sad, especially Pumpkin, which was to be expected. I think she is starting to come to terms with it though, as I have spent the last week preparing her for coping with her grief.
Throughout the wake and funeral, over the next few days and weekend, we will all try to focus on celebrating Booga's life, her sense of humor, and her feistiness, and especially her love for all of us.
Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers...
