Although I wasn't a member of this board for long, I wanted to post that my mom passed away Saturday May 8th from lung cancer. The last 3 months since her diagnosis have been such a rollercoaster that I am trying to take comfort in the fact she is at peace. However it doesn't fill the void in my heart.

We have always talked a few times everyday and I visited her a couple of times a week. I really don't know how I am going to fill the void.

I do want to thank those of you who have given me support and advice on these boards.

Thank you..

Nicol, It takes time and a lot of it to feel whole again after a loss. At least that's what I have to believe. I think things are getting easier for me after 7 months. Your mother will always be a part of you. Remember the good times. I find myself smiling more often these days when I think of my husband. Take care of yourself now. Fay

It really is the toughest times, isn't it.

I spent mother's day weekend in the hospital with my mother, who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

I lost her shortly thereafter.

Please know that my thoughts are with you.
