Sleep peacefully, Mum

Relaxed, happy pose during a rare vacation trip.

At about 4:00 pm, today,--less than one hour ago!--our mother, Cecilia Rita Paquette Baker, passed on.  She was aware to the end, and died in the arms of my eldest brother, right after saying goodbye to my Sister, Dad, and my other brothers.

Cecilia was the daughter of an immigrant cobbler.  She got her GED and went to college in her 50's, after bearing and raising seven children.  She and Dad were married over 60 years.

Sleep well, Mum.  You earned it.
