Default Mom passed peacefully

My mom was diagnosed on 04/02/2016 and on that date the only problems she had Way her right arm had weakness. She progressed very aggressively. To being completely paralyzed with in 6-8 months. She passed away last Thursday 04/13/2017 peacefully in her sleep little over a year after her diagnosis. She never lost her mind it was sharp as a tack. She was communicating with my father via eye gaze approximately 30 minutes before her passing. My prayers are with anyone that s living with this horrible disease and their caretakers.
