A Butterfly Goes to Heaven


Hi everyone.

I just wanted to let you all know that my beloved mother passed away last night at about 9:45 PM.

My dear brother, Tom, was with her when she took her last breath.

She died peacefully and surrounded by love.

I am at a loss for words right now, so please forgive me. I will write more in the weeks to come.

I will be flying to Florida tomorrow and spending a week or so with my brother and family, so I won’t be online much, getting things ready to go.

I will try to post when I get there, just to let you know that I arrived.

But before I go, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your support, prayers, good vibes and love that you’ve shared with my mother since last March, because it made both her time on this earth and her final transition a peaceful and loving one.

It still amazes me how powerful online friendships can be. Because even though we might not ever know each other in person, we still connect through the energy and power of our words.

And it made a WORLD of difference….


Thank you SO MUCH everyone!

  9. Oh Ron. All I can say is that I'm deeply saddened by the news but I know that you have been preparing yourself for this. That doesn't make it any easier. You are such a wonderful and bright soul. Just know that so many people are sending you love right now. You are in my thoughts. I hope your mother and mine will be having coffee somewhere up above and laughing like we have together.

  11. Ron, I am so terribly sorry! There is nothing so painful as losing your mother. My mother left us more than 10 years ago and I still miss her very much. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Always remember that you were a great son to her . Your mother will live forever in your heart. I'm here if you need me, brother. Take care of yourself!

  13. I am so sorry Ron. There are things I could say, but you will be saying them all yourself anyway. You spent some quality time with your mother and made many beautiful memories, that will stay with you forever.

    The best medicine we found was to talk about our mother all the time, to whoever would listen. It truly helps and we are all here for you to do that whenever you feel the need. Right now you need your family.



    Look after yourself xxx

  14. I'm so sorry Ron. I have been reading your updates and praying for your precious Mother. I know how hard losing someone is even though we are prepared and have said our goodbye's. Please call when you get to Fla if there is anything you need or just to talk. I love you.

    I offer to my condolences. Now is the time for you to grieve your loss. Your wonderful mother is now in the realm of unconditional love and light. She will always be in your heart and your soul. The warm sun on a cold day the cool breeze on a hot day will all be the comfort that this beautiful woman still has to offer her sons. Her time here has melded into the place of no time. Know that she has taught all of those who came in contact with her. Take her lessons on your continued path. Ron, your tears will dry and the heaviness will get a little lighter as the days progress. When the memory of this wonderful lady enters your thoughts in the future a smile will return and you will know that she has not left but is only on a different journey.
    Namaste.

    Your beautiful comment was like a wonderful healing salve that touched and warmed my heart. Thank you, dear friend.

    My passed as she had always wished. Peacefully, calmly, and surrounded by love.

    Yes, I am both grieving and crying. You should have seen me yesterday on the phone with my dear brother. The two of us cried together and it felt so good. I am so looking forward to spending the next 10 days with him, as we both walk through this together.

    Thank you so much for all your support, care and love during these past 6 months. It has been a blessing!

  38. Oh, Ron. My heart sank when I saw the title to this post before reading it. It scared me and then I saw it was true. Hugs from nearby. I'm so glad you had that conversation with her about regrets. That was a beautiful post. Hang in there, friend.

    I saw the photo before the title.
    I knew......I just didn't want it to be, but it's not about me or you or what we want. And it's okay.....even when it doesn't 'feel' okay.
    She's home. And I hope her and dad are dancin' it up, yaknow?


    In the arms of angels..... I will try to get past that sadness to celebrate that her wishes were honoured as she went home to G-d in the arms of angels.
    My heart hurts for you, for that perceived empty spot that she's truly not 'left'. She filled it with such huge love for you, all of her life with you. She chose you to love. And she rocked at it.



    Loved well--and well loved.


    Safe journey.
    And let people be there for you and yours.

  42. Hiya Mel~

    "She's home. And I hope her and dad are dancin' it up, yaknow?"

    Funny you mentioned that because the last two conversations we had, she kept telling me, "Your father is talking to me because I can hear him."


    I truly think he was there, bringing her home.

    "My heart hurts for you, for that perceived empty spot that she's truly not 'left'. She filled it with such huge love for you, all of her life with you. She chose you to love. And she rocked at it."



    She SURE did, didn't she? My brother and I both feel very blessed to have had her as our mother.

  44. Dear dear Ron (Dickie),
    Just found this spot through Chris Robison and I'm so glad I did. We all miss you very much and I feel like I was led to this today and now I know why - so I could find out about the passing of your mom. I've read the things you have written and I truly believe your dad was there to greet her and help her cross over. I'm a big believer in that. How fortunate you and your brother were to have her for so many years and to know her love. Travel safe as you head back down this way and know that there are lots and lots of people who love you. Sending you a great big hug and lots of love! xoxo, Hilda

  45. Hey there V Girl~

    Yes, I was shocked too because no sooner did I hang up talking to my brother on the phone, he called back about 20 minutes later and said that she had passed. But when peacefully and calmly, with a smile on her face.

    " i'm very sorry for your loss and wish i could be there to give you a hug and be a source of comfort."

    You ARE a source of comfort, my friend. EVERYONE here is, because I can feel your out pour of love and support, so thank you!

    "I've read the things you have written and I truly believe your dad was there to greet her and help her cross over. I'm a big believer in that."

    I'm a believer of that too. So, I do think my father was there to help her come home.

    " How fortunate you and your brother were to have her for so many years and to know her love."

    You said it. We're both VERY fortunate indeed.

  47. I tried "text" messaging you today, totally forgetting I was sending it to your house phone.
    I didn't want to call, only because I am sure you're very overwhelmed right now.
    But you have my number and if you need to talk you can call me 24/7.

  48. That's funny because I've had other people do the same thing, thinking I had a cell phone so they texted me and called me later in the day to say, "Why didn't you respond to my text message?!?!

    I think I'm the only person on the planet who doesn't have a cell phone.

  50. Ron, in the several years of reading your blog, whenever you've posted about your mother, it felt like I actually knew her in person. And even though I knew she was very ill, reading this today truly breaks my heart because I will miss your stories about her.


    Know that all our love is with you now, supporting you and your brother through this great loss. I'm glad you're going to be spending some time in Florida with your brother and family because you all need each other right now.

    You're right, It's like you know it's inevitable, yet when the moment comes...it's like the wind is knocked out of you. It's ironic because all day yesterday I could feel something going on with my mother, so I think I felt it on some level.


    Yup...I will DEFINITELY be posting from Florida from time to time, letting you guys know what's going on. I will most likely be there until sometime during the final week of Nov. I'm actually looking forward to this trip for many reasons.

  55. I've been thinking of you alot lately. I couldn't bring myself to comment on the last post, I'm sorry, it was emotional for me for different reasons. But I've certainly had your family in my thoughts, knowing this day would come for you all. I believe you (and, your brother) made your mom's final months, weeks, and days so much easier through love and I know you'll feel her energy come back to you again and again to help comfort as needed.
    Thanks for sharing all you did of her. And that you had such a wonderful relationship is an inspiration.
    Peace and love to you, my friend.
    I'll continue to hold you in my thoughts.

    The support and love we've been receiving from everyone here has been so touching.

  80. Oh no Ron, Oh No. I had not seen you and was afraid... I actually was avoiding checking in a way... just knowing somehow. I am so glad you were able to really TALK to her. I have learned so much from you about life, death, regrets, success... your mother has inspired me through you so many times. Remember, she is in you... she is part of you.... she will always be with you. Oh honey... I am so so so sorry. XXXOOO big hugs to you... prayers... positive thoughts... I wish I could be there to help. You are in my heart and head Ron.

  81. Hello Katherine~

    Thank you so much for stopping by and for your beautifully supportive words, my friend. They touched me deeply.

    ((((( You ))))

    My family and I are so grateful that my beloved mother passed peacefully, calmly, and with love all around her. She died with a smile on her face.

    I flew down to Florida on Saturday and will be here until next Wednesday. Her memorial service will be on Monday. I'm so glad to have this time with my brother because we've been a great support for one another. We're enjoying our time together.

    Again, thank you for your comment, Katherine!

    X ya!

  82. Ron, I am so sorry to hear that. It is such a hard thing to let people go, even when the choice it not ours. I won't say any of the things that you don't want to hear, rather I feel for you during this difficult time of transition. Be kind to yourself and know that you are loved.


    And also remember that your Mother will continue to travel with you forever.
    Peace to you my friend
    Hugs ♥
