My mother passed away on July 25th after battling Stage 3 UPSC for two years.
Although she was very sick, we were able to enjoy her last month together, looking at pictures, holding hands and telling each other "I love you" as much as possible. My dad was an incredible caregiver through it all.
She was able to stay at home until the last 24 hours, when we became unable to manage her pain. Our hospice nurse was an angel.
I never imagined I would be without her so soon...the years stretch ahead with something missing.
I will carry my mother's strength, generosity and adventurous spirit with me. She was my favorite person on this earth.
