I am still in total shock. She went so fast. She started complaining of chest pain and sob on 1-2-10. I took her to the ER and they diagnosed her with mets to lungs, liver, adrenal glands, mesenteric tissue, etc etc. She passed away on 1-20-10. Everyday she was a little bit worse. It was so strange because before she started having pain she was totally self sufficient, lived alone, drove etc. Then she started just fading away before my eyes until she was finally gone. She was (is) my best friend, my greatest source of support and my biggest fan. I miss her so much. I used to talk to her everyday. Sometimes the pain is unbearable. This hit me totally out of the blue. She didn't want a funeral but she agreed that a party/memorial dinner would be okay. I was planning on taking her on a cruise this year to celebrate her 70th bday (7-3). I wish I had done it for her 69th bday instead. She raised me by herself and honestly was the nicest, sweetest most devoted person I'll ever meet. I was lucky to have her as long as I did and I know that I'll see her again but WOW do I ever miss her now. It really hurts.
