I am really sorry for the loss of your loved one. I did have the experience of meeting some of you at the hospital when my own mother was dying. I appreciate the support you gave my family even though at the time your own family was suffering,and worried. Please know that I pray for your family with the same compassion I have for my own. May God bless you all and give you strength. I know sometimes well- meaning people say they understand how we feel in our grieving... but having just lost my mother ... I definitely understand your loss.
