This definitely qualifies as the worst day ever

Guys, I'm going to be offline for a while.  My mother just passed away from stage 4 breast cancer and I'm having to make arrangements with my family now.

 

I can't really express words about it because this was completely unexpected, though we had moved her from the hospital to hospice care on Mother's Day.  I knew that we didn't have much time in terms of things, but this was sooner than any of us expected.

 

I just want to thank those of you who have sent me well wishes on this beforehand and I know it's probably going to be a tough number of days for me and my family ahead, but I'll come back when I can do so.
