Mom, we've faced a lot of challenges the last 18 years, but we weathered those storms together.  I wouldn't give up a minute of it.  Your strength and no nonsense approach to life never ceased to amaze me.  You faced death the same way.  I wish I had a little of that strength right now.  So while my heart is broken now, I know happy memories will help heal it.  Give Dad and Pam a hug from me.  I love you and will miss you.
