My mom passed away December 14, 2008 in Ithaca, NY. I was fortunate to spend her last week with her. Although most of the time she was in a semi-coma, my sister, brother, and I were lucky to share 36 hours with her, where she was definitely "with us". Love you, Mom. - Mark

Hi Mark,
So sorry to hear about your mom. She sounds like she lived a full life of giving to others. My mom is 87 and is frail. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Mark; I was in this same position only three short years ago. I know the space you are in. Be well my friend and take pleasure in the fact that your mother is with you, even when she can't be there in person.

Very nice picture. I hope your winter break leaves you with some time to rest and reflect.

Hello. Sorry about your mom. Coming up on one year for my mom being gone. It gets easier,but there are still times I will grab the phone to call her with some crazy thing the grandkids did, or just to see how she did today.
Remember the good times.
Take care
