My mother, Mary Katherine Page Brooke, passed away this afternoon. Her end was peaceful and fairly brief, after her long decline over the past six years. She was 94 years old and is survived by five children, and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren.

Mom came home this morning and is settled in for now. She is very near the end and is not expected to last more than a few days. Her body will not take nourishment any longer and rejects the food --- all we can do is try to keep her comfortable and give her a peaceful end.

A quick update on what's been going on here---my mother remains in the hospital (the Campbellton-Graceville Hospital, which is close). If things go well, she will come home tomorrow, Friday, and be under Hospice care.
I know that this is the final stage of Mom's life. She will be leaving us soon, but soon could run from days to months. All that is to be done is to care of her until it's time and to pray.
