I just heard about the passing of your mom today. I just wanted to send a simple message to wish you strength to move on, as you journey through this very difficult time period. My mom was the same age when she died nine years ago. It doesn't matter how old our mom's are...it leaves us with an unimaginable emptiness.
I'm so sorry I wasn't available to share a hug, as you are move through this difficult life transition. Just know you are not alone and hopefully peace, understanding, and acceptance will follow as time passes.
