    To all,

    Yesterday mid morning my Mom had a heart attack at home in Grand Junction, Colorado. Fortunately her close neighbor was there to call 911 who responded immediately. Unfortunately it was so massive there was nothing that could have saved her. I have since spoken to the neighbor, and had a chance to share Mom's last thoughts which was of some comfort. She will be buried next to my Dad in Williamstown, Mass, who passed away in 2008 after suffering from Alzheimer's. Needless to say, I will miss them both. Mom was planning to sell her house and move back east to be closer to us, but due to the tight housing market their were no offers on her house. A sad day.

    Rhody...

    There is not anything appropriate I can think of saying, other than that I am sorry for you.

    My condolences to you, rhody.
    You will not "get through" your grief, ever, but will gradually, in verbal and non-verbal ways understand how your Mom and Dad has shaped you, and will remain sources of inspiration within your life.
    With time, your grief will become a gratitude towards them, and it will be natural for you to re-visit them in private moments of your mind.
