How terrible. Thoughts to his family.

Thanks Linda, and Ing.

It was a rough two weeks, but it really brought my family together. (I have 8 siblings, so it was quite a re-gathering.)

I hung out with my mom each of the last 5 days of her life, so that was a gift, to see it coming.

And my brother and I gave eulogies. I really needed to speak on her behalf. So glad I did.

That phase is over now.

Eternal rest grant unto her, and let perpetual light shine upon her.

May peace fill your heart, Dave.

There isn't much more I can say, other than what I put on your facebook page.   I'm sorry you have to feel this pain.

At this point, all you can do now is take things slow, be gentle with yourself, and let yourself  ease into the new "normal" your life will become.

Very sorry to hear this news, Dave.

My mom died in January, after being in ICU for a few days.  She never even made it to hospice care, which would have been the next step.

So I can sympathize with what you and your family are going through now.

By the way, you may not remember it, but at your New York City book signing some years ago, you autographed a copy of your book, Columbine, for my mom and wrote some kind words about me in it.  She kept it, and I found it in her bookcase after she died.

She admired you, and was a sweet and caring lady who would also be sad to hear about your mom, if she knew.

I'm glad you had the chance to give eulogies....that's hard, but it does help.  Best wishes to you and the rest of your family.

Thanks Chuck. It's going a bit more slowly than I planned! haha. But I guess it takes it's own pace.
