On Sunday, May 8th, Mother’s Day, I held my mother’s hand as she took her final breath.
Born to Gus and Edna Adolf on July 2, 1954, Karin Lynn Pakenham, wife of Jim Pakenham, had spent the past four months fighting for her life after a day surgery that had gone terribly wrong. Her gifts to us during those four months as we sat by her bedside, were her unbelievable sense of humour that made us laugh in the face of adversity, her ability to astound us with her quick witted sarcasm and her courage to die when she knew we, as a family, couldn’t watch her suffer anymore. My mother’s precious spirit was taken from us far too soon.
For our family, friends and those who were touched by mom’s infectious laugh and cute smile, please join us at the Sorrento Centre in Sorrento, BC on Saturday, June 18th at 1:00 pm for a celebration of her life.
I love you, Mom.
You will never be forgotten.
