Thinking of BoringPostcards with love and sympathy. We're all here for you, I know [More:]and many of us know how hard this is. I'm so glad you were able to be there and it was peaceful at the end.
BP, you have my deepest sympathies and every hope for strength during this difficult time. What a blessing for your mother that you could be nearby when her time came. You know that all of us at metachat will be thinking about you and sending good thoughts your way. Much love.

As usual words are pretty feeble at these times but my thoughts are with you. Being with her at the end of her time is probably the greatest gift that you could give a person.

My sisters and I will probably be there in the next year with our mom who is beyond treatment for liver cancer. Not expecting this to be a good year.

Peacefully, with family, is the way to go. Yet, it doesn't lessen the pain of those left behind. (((BP)))

Oh man- thank you so much, everyone. I've also gotten emails and Twitter DMs from people here, and I can't tell y'all how much it has all meant to me.

We were on the road all day today, going over to my mom's hometown in Alabama to make funeral arrangements. Some of you had been following my tweets about her health problems, which started up a few days before the new year. She asked to be taken to a hospice at the end of last week, and then passed on yesterday. After the horribleness of 23 days in the hospital, we are all BEYOND relieved that she got to spend the last days and hours in comfort and quiet, with her favorite Chopin CD playing and both my brother and I by her side.

I've always ached for you bunnies that have lost parents, because I couldn't imagine how hard that must be if you and your parents are close. And as it turns out, yeah, it IS damn hard to take. Again, thank y'all so much for all the kind messages.

So sorry for your loss, BoPo... our hearts go out to you and your loved ones.

I wish I could be there and cook comforting food and listen to your stories and be on hand with tissues for the tears. I'm sorry that all I can do is tell you I'm thinking of you and that in time some of the tears will pass, and you'll always remember the stories and joy.

That's a tough one ... Moms are pretty special. Be patient with yourself and know that whatever way you feel is the way you should feel (and don't let anyone tell you different). Take care.
