Today my Mother Nancy lost her 3 year battle with ovarian cancer. My father and brothers and I were by her side.
My mother was a force of nature. She fought hard to the very end. And even when she was given bad news about her treatment she did not despair she fought harder.
She was a wonderful mother and role model. She was kind and compassionate and always thought of others. She touched many lives. Especially those of my brothers and I.
While the hole in my heart is great I take comfort in the fact that I see a lot of her in myself. That and the fact that her Influence such a large part of me that she will always be with me.
