37: Mom's Last Picture I believe this is the last picture I took of Mom before she passed away. Barry and I took Mom to her condo for her week, October 2005. It was wonderful spending time with her even though she was in a lot of pain and discomfort. After the week was over, we took her back home to the nursing home where she lived. She began having chest pains and was admitted to the hospital for tests. After several days of tests, they couldn't find anything wrong with her. She returned to the nursing home still in a lot of pain. They found her unresponsive in her bed after lunch October 17, 2005. She was a wonderful loving mother, full of joy and optimism. She will forever be missed by her family and friends. Love you forever and missing you always. Your daughter, Kathryn
