Topic: Betty Moneypenny, my mother, 1942-2007

Today, January 22nd, 2007, my mother succumbed to cc and took her last breath. I was holding her hand as she went peacefully. My whole world is destroyed, I don't know how I can go on. She was diagnosed just 2 and a half months ago.

My sincere condolences to you and your family. There is nothing anyone can say that makes the pain of the loss any easier but she had a a relatively short illness and peaceful death with you close by. My husband's death is still unbearable for me but I do take some solace in the nature of his  passing, peacefully and without pain.

Words are never enough, but please know that you and your family are in thought thoughts and prayers of so many in this community.  My heart goes out to you - no one should have to walk this road.  I hope you can take some solace in the fact that so many of us are struggling to pick up the pieces and move forward.  You are not alone, and you will one day be able to go on.

I am so  sorry.
I have felt so much for you whilst reading of your mom's struggle.
You were able to hold her hand and help with her peace.
Our prayers are with you.
You are not alone, my alan passed away within 8 weeks so very peacefully.

It is so intense and frustrating as we travel this road and I hope that one day

Joyce,

I'm so very, very sorry for your loss.  As much as we try to prepare ourselves we can never be ready for such a loss.   My heart aches for you.  I pray that God watches over you and gives you strength.

Thank you, everyone, for your kind and compassionate condolences. It means more to me than you will ever know, that I had this board to consult and people with which to discuss this disease. It was an invaluable resource and I hope we can all make a difference somehow 
Keep up the fight!
