My passed away about 2 months ago after a 3 year battle with ovarian cancer. My grandfather (her father) passed away exactly one month after she did. I have been trying to keep myself occupied but ever so often (today, for instance), I just have a really terrible day and I can't exactly put words to it. I'm 23 years old and I feel like I only really started talking to my mom as an "equal" about 4 years ago. I was so happy to be getting to know her as an adult. I loved talking to her everyday, surprising her with gifts during treatments and desserts when I came home from college. Her death was sudden and quick (rare with ovarian cancer) but just not how I had imagined. I miss her so much and it's so hard to imagine this feeling ever going away.
