Momma is in the arms of the angels tonight. She will always be with me in my heart every day. We talked every day, she did not want me to come down till she got home so I cancelled my flight. I guess she was thinking of me first even then and did not want me to see her but to remember our visit a few months ago because it was so good and special. I slept with her and we held hands and she talked to me off and on all night! :) . We have been talking every day since she went in hospital, then Saturday to hospice. When I talked to her this afternoon I told her I loved her and added ( a special saying between us ) You're in my heart Momma and she passed exactly 2 hours later. Thanks to everyone for all your kind words and prayers. Karen and Mark.
For those of you that know my Mother, Louise Chapman,she lived in Sikeston from late 1940's to 1977, she was 94 in March. She had to be transferred from hospital to today to a hospice facility in Georgia where she has lived with my brother, Gary for the last 10 years.
Just remembering Mom's life: She was the one who made popcorn balls for Halloween on the white house on the corner of Malone and Selma. She was a room mother and always. Made cupcakes for the class parties. Sometime in the 60's Sikeston Little Theater put on a production of "Oklahoma". Mom made all the dresses. I have the news paper clipping with Mom on the stage with the girls in all the dresses she made. We would take Sunday evening window shopping trips on Front St. And she would sketch a picture of a dress in that kids clothing store,, can't remember name, then she would go home and make a pattern and we would go to Penneys for material and she made me a dress like it. Actually she made clothes for several people She would make us dresses out of the same material and make my doll clothes out of the scraps left over She also sewed and crocheted Barbie doll clothes So many good memories..........
