There's not much if anything that I can add to all the caring and thoughtful comments above.
Thank you for the eloquent post, and sharing your memories of your mom. I'll make sure to call mine tonight and tell her I love her.
I wish you comfort and strength. Take care my friend.

I love you Lucas.

I actually mean that and I know in person I'd feel the same.

I am so truly sorry. X

My deepest condolences, Lucas :hug2:  What a touching post.  From what you've written about your mother, it sounds like she'd be quite proud of you for recognizing that her spirit and energy live on...and for choosing to be inspired by her to reach your own potential.  Sending warm thoughts your family's way :rose:

I'm so sorry, Lucas. I feel a special kinship to you after reading that because my mother is also currently 86 years old, and I have to say, in recent months I find myself being so sad because I know what's to come. I know we can't dwell on what we can't change and that "it is what it is" but I feel so fortunate to still have her. She is my best friend in life and nobody loves me the way she does. I truly hurt for you. :rose:

VT, thank you so much

The posts here on the forum from all the wonderful people are truly special .. I sent this thread to my sis, who told me she could not get thru the first page without sobbing, but read each and every one and will continue to ..

Thank you again

Bean, thank you so very much

I am truly lucky to have had a Mom like I did ... But not only was she my Mom, she was my best friend and an enormous inspiration

Thank you again Bean

Xanadu, I will be thinking of you and your Mom .. Thank you so very much for telling me this, and for your kind words

The "best friend" part rings so true

You probably don't have to do anything more than you've been doing - just being yourself, because what you just wrote could only come from a loving and caring daughter .

Thank you again X

Lucas, I can't put into words how your post has made me feel. I'm sure that your mom was as proud of you as you are proud of her.
God bless you and your family. :rose:

Lucas, I hope you and your sister are doing okay.
I just wanted to share a strange little coincidence with you.
When I called my mum the other evening, the call ended up being exactly 21 minutes 12 seconds long. I was not timing the call, I only checked it after we'd hung up.
It made me go "hmm", and I just thought I'd mention it.

Don't make any rash decisions when you're at a vulnerable time in your life.  I'm speaking from experience.  This is why I made that post about cults the other day.   Sorry for your loss.
