Goodbye Mom

I am sad to say that my Mom, Joy Wickenden passed away on September 2nd.  She was 87 and had been suffering from Alzheimer's for many years.  We looked after her at home until 4 years ago when she required 24 hour care.  In July, Mom was diagnosed with cancer.  In the end, she went peacefully one hour after my hubby and I had visited.  My cousin was visiting when she passed away.  I'm grateful she didn't die alone.  So on Monday, September 8th we will have the funeral and interment in Toronto.  We are keeping the service deliberately small with mostly family in attendance.
Donations to the Humane Society or SPCA in lieu of flowers has been requested.  There is an obituary on the Westview Funeral Chapel (London) website.
Thank you to those of you that have called or emailed condolences.  We appreciate the concern and care extended to us.
