My Mom died unexpectedly quite recently, at age 87.
She had been failing for some time, partly from early Alzheimer's,

retirement apt., gorgeous building, near my brother,and where we all
could see her more often.
She seemed to be coming along, making the adjustment slowly, and

family to make it in from various spots in Ontario, and my niece from
For all of you who have lost a mother, you know what this is like. I
miss her terribly. I keep wanting to call her to chat, but she's not

Thanks to all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers.
