My beautiful, sweet, kind and amazing mother passed away five days ago. It still doesn't feel real, despite doing very difficult things like organizing the funeral etc. She had been in and out of hospitals for three years due to two broken legs, breast cancer, COPD and finally metatastic lung cancer. But she was fiercely independant and strong. She never complained about being stuck in a hospital for months at a time. She listened to her radio where they played news and current events all day. And she also read news magazines and crime novels.
Unfortunately, she passed away a little more than a year ago. That day, I lost the woman of my life….

The cruel irony of losing your mother is that right after her death is when you will need her the most. My mother died a decade ago, when she was 57 and I was She was first diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 9, but, for the most part, she made a full recovery. But after 11 years in remission, she started feeling sick and was soon diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. For a year and a half, she endured painful surgery and chemotherapy. But remembering the wisdom she shared with me about the passage of time, gleaned from losing her own mother, has become a touchstone for me throughout this past decade.
