Sad news

Today, my Mom died.

She had suffered a massive stroke nearly 2 weeks ago and fought the good fight, but never really regained consciousness. She received excellent care at Cedars-Sinai, but in the end, her body simply gave out. Dad was right there so she didn’t die alone. My sisters raced back to say their goodbyes. I will be there this weekend. I don’t know any details of the funeral; I’m sure those will be made available shortly. Still processing it all…

Mom and I

2011 – Mom and I

UPDATE: In talking with my Dad, he indicated that there would be a service on Wednesday evening and Mass on Thursday. I will add more details as arrangements are finalized.

    Oh Monica, I’m so sorry. She was so dear to all of us, and an inspiration to everyone who knew her. I will miss her tremendously.

    Your mom was totally loveable — incredibly warm, thoughtful and self-possessed. We will miss her.
