Sending you hugs, Penny.

Watching someone you love so much suffer is just about the worst torture in the world. At least she has no more pain.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I'm so sorry to hear this Penny. I know how hard it has been for you. I'm glad your mum is at peace now. I'm glad you were able to be there for her through the end. My mom died a little over 8 years ago, so I understand some of your loss. Prayers for you and your family as you take care of all the arrangements and move on with your lives.

I'm sorry. Believe when I say, you will be happy late on that you were there with her. My sisters and I were all there for my mom the last days also.
I really am so very sorry Bilby!

Penny, I am so sorry about your loss. Moms hold such a unique place in our lives and losing them is so hard. I felt privileged to be with my mom when she passed from this world 17 years ago. I still miss her, and find myself, every now and then, reaching for the phone to call and tell her something. There's a strange "aloneness" about losing your mother that is hard to explain. I hope you have loving friends and family around you to give you comfort. Your DC friends are here for you always.
Saludos, Karen

Penny, my heart goes out to you. My mother left us 14 years ago (this coming Wednesday) and I, like others have mentioned, understand all that you are going through right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers, dear friend. Take it easy and know that when you need some support, you have a large group of people here who care very much about you.

If we're not supposed to eat animals, then how come they're made out of meat?

hugs and warm hearts embracing you for your loss.........
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Penny, I'm so sorry about your Mum. I know that you two were close, she helped you through your kidney problems when she could and she knows you were there for her. Our prayers are with you. Dawn

I was with my mom when she died, too. Wow, talk about powerful feelings! She said not to mourn her, but it was okay if we didn't forget her. She still had her Irish sense of humor to the bitter end. Penny, don't forget your mum even though it hurts; rather keep her memory - that way she isn't really gone. Six years and I still tear. Sorry about your loss, Penny. Marty

Happy cooking, Marty.
