For the blog comments, for the texts, for the letters, the cards, the phone calls,
the in-person support, the silent prayers, the emails, the donations to hospice,
the hugs, the tears, the cookies, the dinners, the flowers, the understanding, the love...
I thank you from the deepest place in my heart
for your great kindnesses and your steadfast support.
Every bit, every bit of what you offered made a difference.
It gave me the strength to help grant my mother's last wish,
to assimilate the journey and let the healing begin.
