I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts & prayers are with you & your family. I know your Mom hasn't been well, but it's always a shock when someone passes even if you were expecting it to happen. Your Mom was always such a great role model when we were in nursing school. She was very professional, but she had a sense of humor I always appreciated. I know you'll miss her, but I know your faith will support you through this tough time. Your Mom is truly in a better place.
Keeping you in my thoughts,
