    Laurie - I'm so sorry for your loss. ((Hugs)) I was so glad to read that you were all able to be with your mom in the end. I'm sure it was an incredible comfort to her to have all of her children there with her. She sounds like a wonderful woman who built a close knit and loving family. You and your family will be in my thoughts. (((Hugs)))

    ((((HUGS)))) Laurie, I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss. As others have expressed, what an awesome gift for you to be there with your siblings to witness her being "mom" 'til the end. I will continue to keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. If there is some other way that we can support you, please do let us know.

    Thanks guys.

    My mom really was so proud of her kids, she practically strutted when she talked about us. It meant the world to her to have us together with her and it meant the world to us too, it's a rare occasion indeed as we live in different cities and are usually surrounded by our own kids & spouses when we see each other.

    We'll see each other again in Toronto in a few weeks to meet with friends & family and celebrate my Mom's amazing life.

    Thanks for all the support.

    I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner Laurie.
    I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish I could say something that would make things better.

    The kids are okay. Nathaniel is sad, but he knew it was coming. Juliet got very sad after I told her over the phone, but then once I was back home I realized that she doesn't actually know what "died" means. The phone rang on Sunday and she thought it was Gummie (my mom's grandmother name). So I asked her if she knew what it meant, and she didn't. I tried to put it in terms she could understand, so I told her that we can't see Gummie or talk to her anymore, and that's why I'm sad, but that she's still there in our hearts and minds. Juliet was so cute, she asked if it was something that automatically happens when someone dies, that they just zap into your heart & mind, and I said yes. So I think she gets it now.

    They are sad because they loved her, and they're sad because I am so sad.

    I think it'll help us all when we gather in Toronto with the rest of the family.

    I really appreciate all the notes here guys....it is not real to me that my mom is actually gone. It is beyond my ability to accept at this point, even though I was there. I suppose it will all come in time.
