I lost my mom 6 weeks ago. I found out about it only 4 days ago. I Feel empty and cold inside. I'll never speak or hear her voice again. My mother Barb, was sick for a long time,with COPD,dementia and she had NPH, or water on the brain. I had not seen her for 8 months. I had been living with her in the nursing home in Chicago up til last June 2013. I was told to leave. They put her in another nursing home,then another,as she was extremely combative,while I stayed in Las Vegas. My sister told me the news a couple of days ago. My mom and I had a very complicated relationship at times,but overall I loved her as much as I could.She was cremated,and I feel like there is no time to ever say goodbye.
