Tombeau de la Mère de Kay Bourgine
July 2021 - Kay's thoughts...
She left the way she lived
with courage, dignity, strength, calm and acceptance
surrounded by some of those
she loved the most.
Her last days filled with tears and laughter… a kind of humor I had never seen before,
telling stories, answering questions, receiving apologies and thanks… and love.
Her last words were
we have a bit of discipline here » when we got too rowdy.
She loved flowers, trees and having her hands in the dirt,
music and dance, art and literature.
She loved feeling her body strong and capable… shoveling snow, building
She loved reading, thinking, learning and working… being busy and feeling useful.
She was ready.
For years she’d told us she
wanted to wake up dead one day… and then she did.
