My mother, Gretchen Reiche Terhune, passed away in the evening on Wednesday, April 24th, 2019. Her passage was peaceful and quick. She was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to all cats. My mom was 85 which, as my uncle said, is a good long haul for a preemie. She died in the same hospital she was born in which I think she would’ve appreciated. I’m devastated yet also incredibly grateful she’s free from suffering and pain. I believe she‘s ecstatic at being reunited with her parents, younger brother and other family members who‘ve passed on. At this time we’re supporting my father in his grief as we make arrangements for services. I will post more about that later. For now I ask you to hold your loved ones dear in your heart and make peace with those from whom you’re estranged in the here and now. Be well, Mom. I already miss you too much.
