Default Loosing my Mother

Hi Lynn,

I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom. I just lost mine on November 8, 2003, due to ALS. I was her primary caregiver for the last 2 years. I too was not ready to loose my Mom. I'm an only child and she has been everything to me.

There is a huge void in my life now that I don't know how to fill. The only thing I'm relieved about is that now she is now longer suffering. The last 6 months of her life were so hard for her and for my husband and I.

I haven't figured out how to cope with the loss although today I went to the library and got some books on coping with grief, I'm hoping they will help a little.

I guess I haven't really said anything useful to you other than the fact that I truly understand how you feel. I wish you peace.
