On Saturday my heart became profoundly broken after talking to my dad. My rock, my mooring, my mother passed away unexpectedly in her sleep. I’m in a state of shock like the rest of my family. My mom had just received a clean bill of health. She was cancer free. She and I were making plans! Heck, we had just spent mother’s day weekend sending out fundraising letters, emails, postings, etc. She was as dedicated in my fundraising goal as I was. Perhaps it has always been our goal to raise $50,000 for breast cancer research.
I have returned home to MN to be with my family during this difficult time. Thank you all for your well wishes for me and my mother. I know that all your comments helped her during her fight with cancer.
Here is a local story about my mother. http://www.twincities.com/washington/ci_12400480
