Annie L Sherrard:  1920 – 2009

Hello all,

This is Mr CnW.  Why you ask?  Well, I told Anne that she needed to let her blogging friends know what has been going on and she said she just couldn’t, so I volunteered. 

Her Mom passed away last Friday (Oct 30th) after a relatively short illness.  She was truly a great little lady.  A wonderful Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother…and also, a heck of a golfer.   It’s hard for us all to believe that just 3 months ago, she was out at her favorite golf course showing it who was the boss. 

She will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved her including Anne, her brother, three grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.   But, we can all find comfort in knowing that she is now on the first tee with Anne’s father at the heavenly golf course where you never lose a ball or hit a bad shot. 

She appreciated all your inquiries about her Mom’s illness and promises to be back blogging soon.  In fact, I think she said she has to do one on the 5th for something or other.   (It’s all “greek” to me!).

Thanks so much for supporting Anne.

You have been in my thoughts during your absence, as i knew that it had to be something like this to have kept you from your blog for so long. As I can see from the posts ahead of me, you have many others who are also keeping you and yours in their thoughts and prayers too. I only wish there was something more that could be done.

Dear Anne, May all the wonderful memories of your Mum be held in a special place in your heart. So sorry for your loss. from Jenny McH

RobinG said...

Dear Anne, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother's death. It's such a tough time. One thing I learned after my father died was that even though the rest of the world seems to expect us to be "back to normal" once the funeral is over, we can be good to ourselves and accept that it's okay to be very sad, that this person was (and still is!) important enough to us that being sad is okay. But don't close family and friends out. You need their hugs right now.
Best wishes, Robin

Sandy said...

What a beautiful picture from, I bet, around 1940. My deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mom. I had read your past posts and knew she was not well. My Mom was born in 1920 also, but I lost her in 2001.....take care!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My sincere sympathy Anne - may all the wonderful memories help you through this time.
