I went to visit my dad last week to help him adjust life without mom. While in Wisconsin I visited my brother who is battling aggressive melanoma. He's struggling with a lot of pain, he walks with a cane, can't work and the doctors are trying to find the right combination of drugs. I also learned that my dad's sister is battling breast cancer and I just received a call from my cousin, Aunt Gerry passed away either last night or early this morning. Cancer sucks, enough already

so my mom passed on 5/13, 5/14 was Mother's day. I talked to my mom every day, probably only missed 7 days over the last year. My mom's name was Dorothy. last week, on 6/14, one month after Mother's Day, I called American Express. when the customer service agent came on the phone, she said... "hello Mr. Evans, this is Dorothy" The immediate thought that came to my mind was "mom? is that you?" then I lost it, cried like a baby I believe in some way, it was mom talking to me
sorry it's been a while since my last post....my mom passed late on 5/13 in Carlsbad, CA while on vacation. It's been a very tough time since, but I have peace in that mom didn't suffer and went on her own terms. My grieving comes in waves and my guess is it will last the rest of my life. Mom was the best.
