It is with great sadness that I tell you of the passing of my dear mother. She died on Wednesday night in the arms of myself, my husband and daughter. With peace and dignity.
"The caterpillar dies so the butterfly could be born and yet, the caterpillar lives in the butterfly and they are but one. So when I die, it will be that I have been transformed from the caterpillar of the earth to the butterfly of the universe."
