Marianne, I am devastated for you to read your news. I am so sorry. You are such a huge support and comfort for us here, and you should take as much time as you need to grieve and go through the process of losing your mother, especially this time of year. Sounds like your mother was in control till the very end and that is truly a blessing in it's own. My own mother spent her last weeks in care, and I know how difficult it can be. Please know that I will be thinking of you over the next several weeks, and as you look back take comfort knowing how blessed you were to have her in your life so long. My deepest sympathies going out to you.
