    It was surreal. I walked into her house and found her slumped over on the toilet. Relatives were there crying and couldn't believe she is gone. I am unsure how long she has been like that, but the medics had to pick her up and I saw her stiff and discolored body as they laid her down on the sheet. Afterwards, she was placed on a gurney and placed in the van. Unfortunately no autopsy will be performed because it cost at least 2 grand, but there is speculation that her heart stopped since she has been having heart problems for a few years. For those who believe in prayer, please pray that I get through this tough time because it will take a long time for me to get over this. It was heartbreaking seeing my mother like that, and I would not wish that on anyone. R.I.P. Gladys 10 Oct0ber 1945- 27 December 2014. You have raised me as your own since I was ten years old and have taught me a lot about being a black woman in this broken society. You will truly be missed and I will forever love you. Just wanted to get that out. Thanks for those who took the time to read it.

    Sister legit-writer ... my deepest condolences for your great loss.

    May the warm and loving thoughts of your Mother keep you in this time.

    I have had the honor of seeing you grow up over these years, maturing beautifully and gracefully, remaining kind and loving in what could be considered adverse situations ... you always rise to the occasion ... standing strong, firm, and respectful in your own convictions ... evidence that your Mother did a BEAUTIFUL job raising you! I'm sure your Mother is, was, and will always be ... proud of you.

    Wallow in the love and memories of your Mother as best you can for it will get you through this devastating time.

    If you need someone to talk to, or if there is anything I can do ... let me know.

    Love You! :grouphug:

    :heart:

    I've been down this road, and you're right, it's going to be hard. But you will get thru it. My thoughts are with you, as well as my ear.

    :grouphug:

    Peace!
