    Default OT -- update on me

    Since we did talk about it on this board and I "know" you guys.....just want to let you know that my mom died yesterday with her four kids (all in our 40s) around her.

    She fought against the cancer so hard but couldn't beat it...but she dictated every other thing and was her strong, persistent self until the end.

    We're laughing and crying together, helping her husband deal with the details, and then go back to our towns and our families.

    Thanks for the kind words you guys have given me when this topic came up. It is truly appreciated.

    Laurie~I have had you and your family in my thoughts for quite some time now. You'll still continue to be in my thoughts while you all deal with your loss. She sounded like a beautiful, wonderful woman and I know she'll be dearly missed. I'm glad that you got to be with her yesterday and wishing you all peace while you remember your remarkable mom.

    Laurie, I am so sorry to read this. What a blessing to be able to be with her and your siblings when she passed, and that you got to see her personality until the very end. I hope you all can find peace during this hard time. I will keep you in my thoughts in the coming weeks

    I'm so sorry. It was amazing that you were all there, I've seen too many people pass without family there and it just breaks my heart.

    Thoughts and Prayers for all of you.

    So sorry for your loss I'm so glad you were able to be with her. My Dad passed away 7 years ago from complications of stomach cancer. He went suddenly so only my Mom and brother were able to be with him, but it gave us all great comfort to know that all eleven of us were able to go and spend time with him in the last months before he died.

    Big Hugs, Laurie. Its so good that you could all be there for her, and for each other. Sounds like she built a strong family. I'll continue to keep you all in my thoughts and prayers these days to come.
