On Monday, Jan. 18th, my mother died 25 years ago. I can't believe it has been 25 years. I was home alone when the call came from the nursing home, where she had been for a few short weeks. She died two days before my 24th birthday. I spent that day in the funeral home. They buried her on the 21st.
She suffered so much from diabetes which led to her death at age 64. From a person whose entire childhood involved looking after a mother who was sick from this disease, please please please take care of yourself if you have a family.
