Allene Robson (locally known as Mom, or, by some, Gramma)
May 19, 1924 to May 31, 2013
May 20 to 25, 2013 – hospital: broken hip, clear directives in place for what she did and did not want in the way of medical intervention
May 25 to 31, 2013 – Serene Corner, Kenmore, Washington – back to familiar people and place
The day after Mom moved from the hospital back to where she's been living for most of the last year (a wonderful adult family home), I took my usual afternoon walk and snapped some photos that reminded me of Mom.
May 28 to 31, 2013 – with special thanks to Evergreen Hospice
She made the world a better place—past, present, and future—in ways that we know about and ways that we don't: quietly in charge of her life and her destiny, to the last breath, despite all obstacles.
Journey well, Mom.
Love you forever.
Many thanks and eternal gratitude to Cynthia, Tita, Danny, Chris, Joe, Patricia, Jeff, Pat, Ben, Bessie, Susan, Melanie, Justin, Pat, and the rock-solid family Mom built.
