A cool story I was reminded of the other day which made me smile was the day before my mom passed away she was in the hospital. I spent most of the day with her and spent the night. That night, Ryan had come to the hospital to visit me and her. Ryan and I went to another room to play cards. When we left, my mom had me come over to her bed. (Sidenote my mom was often known for saying things in a loud voice that should be said in a whisper/secret.) And then she said in her normal voice "He's cute." and smiled. I then went off to play cards and when I came back she was on the ventilator until morning when I left for work, so she couldn't talk. I just realized those where the last words I heard my mom say in person. It's kind of a cool memory to know that in her last words to me, she had given approval.
