"...there was no noise, no tremble, just peace,” the caption read. “Oh God(dess), I realized as a woman how lucky I am. I was there when that wonderful creature drifted into my life and I was there when she drifted out. It was the most precious moment of my life.”
“I have seen, heard and felt every bit of your love,” Wimbush added.
According to Dorien’s obituary, young woman died “peacefully with her Mother by her side.” A cause of death has not been revealed.
A few of days prior, Ms. Wimbush posted an image of her hand placed on top of her daughter's hand. "Your prayers are necessary... thank you in advance," she wrote in the caption.
