First of all I need to say this. My 91 year-old mother died on Saturday morning, the 16th of May at 1:50 am. I was called by the doctor at the hospital where I’d taken her the previous Monday, and told to get there as soon as I could. I tried to collect myself and headed to the nearby bank to get the money out for cab fare as I don’t have a car. While there two police officers who were in the variety store in the plaza asked me if they could assist me. I was already balling my eyes out because I had a feeling of what was happening. This was about quarter after one that morning. I told them I’d been called and the dire necessity of my getting to the hospital. The man and woman officers promptly put me in the cruiser and drove me to the hospital, running red lights to get me there. I don’t know who they are, but I thank them from the bottom of my heart. Had it not been for them I wouldn’t have been there for my mom when she passed about thirty minutes later. I stayed with her and took the walk down with her before heading home around six am Saturday morning.

I debated whether to say anything on any of my social media accounts, or anywhere else for that matter. But I finally decided I would make a Twitter post about my loss. Sort of mark it in a way. Have at least a mention of it in my timeline as a memory of it. So I had some of my followers offer their condolences including one who I happened to meet, I think, on a message board for DAYS OF OUR LIVES when Tamara was on as Taylor Walker. Her name is Dawn Elicia. She was so sweet in offering her condolences, but she did something that I will never forget, she tweeted Tamara telling her about my mom and Tamara had this to say:

I want to thank Tamara so much for taking the time to say this. You have no idea how much this meant to me. The next two weeks are going to be difficult with the funeral later this week and the settling of her matters next, but I know for a fact that this will carry me as I navigate the difficult emotional waters these next few days. Tamara you are the best. Dawn, no words.

      Thank you so very much for your kindness. It’s been difficult these past two months, her birthday was on June 19 and that was hard. My birthday is this month. If I can get past that I’ll be thankful. But this news with Tamara has put a smile on my face for sure. Something to look forward to.

      You take care and be safe. Hug someone you love.
