My mom passed away on Friday with family all around her! Mom was diagnosed with ALS April, 2002. My dad was her primary caregiver and I've cut back on work to spend time with my mom. She was my best friend and I'm so sad! I can't seem to stop crying! I haven't worn make-up for the last 3 days because my eyes are so swollen! I miss her so badly! She was the most wonderful person in the world! She was so beautiful!
