{Mom Lived 11 Days Short of her 66th Wedding Anniversary}

When Mom went to Heaven on January 27th, she was ONLY 11 days short of her 66th Wedding Anniversary on February 7!
This is my Mom, wearing her favorite brocade suit from J.C. Penny Outlet, which she bought with me when visiting us in Georgia.
I have several pictures of Mom where she is looking very happy!
That's how all our dear friends remember her...

This was on our 42nd trip to The Netherlands... out of 64 total.
We went with Mom to a 40th wedding anniversary mass where her choir sang.

Congratulations anyway dear Mom; you have accomplished so much!
Here on this earth you do have a very proud eldest daughter.
Thanks for being my Mom for 64 years minus 10 days...
I know for sure that I had the best and the sweetest Mom!

  2. Hello Mariette, Every time I see your mother's warm smile, it makes me wish I could have known her personally. And what a great milestone at least to have reached her 65th anniversary!

      Well, in a way you all got to know her... She really did give us a very warm smile here; so happy that we came to visit her in The Netherlands. This was on our 42nd trip.
      Yes, the many milestones that my Mom reached are remarkable!
      Kindest regards,
      Mariette

  3. Your mom looks like she had great spirits no matter what hardship life brought her. She has a gorgeous and happy face. This my friend, you have inherited, the art of happiness no matter what the situation! Remember her and always be proud to have such an amazing roll model. You had her for 64 years and that is a blessing in itself!
    Love,

      Mom lived through lots of hardships and always could radiate her lovely smile and make us happy for being hers. I sure am proud of her as a perfect role model and yesterday on my Birthday I was very happy; knowing she is at peace in heaven and at my side always.

  5. Mooie foto, jammer dat ze het net niet gehaald heeft, maar het is even goed een lang huwelijk geweest wat niet veel mensen meemaken. Als ze al niet gaan scheiden tegenwoordig...onze generatie is de laatste der Mohikanen denk ik soms.

      Ja, het was zó dichtbij deze gebeurtenis maar inderdaad is het een lang huwelijk geweest en een voorbeeld voor velen! Je hebt gelijk met onze generatie, althans een gedeelte, wat tot de laatste der Mohikanen behoort in dat opzicht!

      Thank you and yes I do fully realize that, even if the second half of my life has been mostly far away of my dear Mom, we did visit her 64 times across those 8,436 km!
      That helps me in knowing we have done more than enough and also gifting her and Dad with 5½ ticket of all 10 together for them to visit us on this side of the Atlantic.
      It was good having my birthday with the knowledge that Mom indeed resides in heaven!
      Hugs,

  11. Lieve Mariette,

    Er zullen altijd dagen blijven die herinneringen oproepen met een lach en een traan,en dit is zo'n dag.
    Een jaar geleden toen jullie nog samen waren,heel dicht bij elkaar in betere omstandigheden.
    Wat zal je haar missen nou ze er niet meer is.
    Het lijkt mij bijzonder moeilijk voor jou als dochter dat je niet in de gelegenheid was om bij het definitieve afscheid van je lieve moeder aanwezig te zijn.


    Nogmaals veel,héél veel sterkte gewenst,kan me helemaal voorstellen dat je moeilijke momenten moet hebben in deze tijd.

    Liefs,Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Als je over 32 jaar al 64 keer ècht afscheid genomen hebt dan komt de dood niet als een dief in de nacht hoor. We vierden op 15 februari in 2014, met de hele familie samen nog haar 90ste verjaardag en hun 65-jarig huwelijksfeest en dat was de reden van onze 64ste trip naar Nederland. Dus wat dat betreft hebben we er van hieruit àlles aan gedaan om bij de hoogtepunten aanwezig te zijn en meer nog. Ook hadden we mijn Moeder maar liefst 4 keer aan deze zijde van de Oceaan door voor hun 5-½ ticket te betalen van de in totaal 10 tickets.
      Daarmee is er in ons hart echte vrede want als je voor een begrafenis over vliegt is het voor de betreffende persoon tóch te laat!
      Ik heb echt wel definitief afscheid kunnen nemen en op een hele fijne manier tijdens een erg fijn telefoongesprek op 11 januari om 8:00u in de morgen, haar tijd. Op de dag dat haar Engel-dochter 65 geworden zou zijn. Ze had de hele nacht geschreid; haar éérste nacht in het ziekenhuis... Ze werd weer rustig na het gesprek en kon de moeilijke laatste fase aan; die velen van haar familie reeds waren voorgegaan. Erna heb ik nog een keer gebeld, naar Maastricht, ook weer om 8:00u en mijn jongste broer is per trein naar haar toegereisd om haar met mij te laten bellen via zijn iPhone en dan met de ambulance mee naar Venlo te komen. Dat waren zúlke mooie en warme momenten en nogmaals via FaceTime, waarin zij het scherm aaide, om me aan te kunnen raken... Voor mij kon het definitieve afscheid níet mooier. En ook was ik er bij via FaceTime tijdens haar allerlaatste nacht...
      Mogelijk hebben mijn broers en zussen er meer moeite mee dan ik. Afscheid nemen is telkens een stukje dood gaan en dat deed ik al 64 keer.
      Gisteren een hele fijne verjaardag gehad en met de wetenschap dat mijn Moeder dichtbij was en vanuit de hemel altijd alles kan volgen.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  12. Gave foto hoor...en bijna 66 jaar getrouwd...inderdaad een hele prestatie ..komt niet vaak voor. Maar ze is nu vast gelukkig, je geeft het hier en dar al zelf aan, inderdaad kun je je ouders niet altijd bij je houden, er komt een tijd dat ze 'gaan' ...

      Ja, mooie foto die Pieter van ons genomen heeft; pracht herinnering!
      Wij waren er voor klaar, al heel lang en hebben altijd heel bewust onze bezoeken naar Nederland gemaakt. Laatste reis zaten we aan haar bed tijdens alle dialyse behandelingen, op één na, maar dat was de wekelijkse dag dat mijn Vader bij haar was. Wij bezochten een nicht van mij en dat liep wat uit.
      Dus wat dat betreft hebben we een heel vredig gevoel.
      Liefs,

      Thank you and sure this photo is dear to my heart as it reflects again very happy times together with her.
      Mom always has inspired me and yes, whenever we did visit her during her choir practices, she was mighty proud of her eldest daughter! Such moments are forever framed onto my retina and we also have video tapes. Here we both went to Church where she had to sing in her choir for a 40th wedding anniversary. Next day we left by train for the hotel near the airport and flight back to the USA...
      Yes, our Friday was special as it was my first birthday with Mom being in heaven and we enjoyed a lovely 5-course dinner, gifted by our good friend and lady chef from Ristorante da Maria. It was perfect and made us very happy.
      Hugs,

    That is such a beautiful photo of Mother and Daughter - so precious to have! My Mother was camera shy and we have few photos together - she would run from the camera, but I do have some very special ones.

      Thank you very much and indeed, such photos have a tremendous meaning now as they no longer can get made. To me they are very valuable and I will treasure them for the rest of my life untill we have the joy of meeting again. We just had lunch with a dear friend, still celebrating my birthday. She also had Mom over for tea during her final visit with us here in the USA, in 2005. Fond memories all over and Mom was very much loved here in Dublin!
