Oh Steph,

My heart is broken.  Your Mom was one of the first people to greet me here and help me to make sense of what was happening to me and for that I will always be grateful.  My prayers go out for you and your whole family that you pass through this with the strength of peace.  Your Mom left us the way she lived; with courage and dignity.

Hi Steph, 

Your mom was one of the first people I met shortly after my diagnosis in this forum.  She always seemed to be on-line, ready to jump in with wisdom and words of encouragement.  We'll also remember her passionate to the legal profession and of course her love of Mayor Pete.... she will always be remembered for the contribution she made...   my deepest condolences to your family.

I’m shocked and saddened to hear this.  I’m glad she was at peace and pain free. It seemed to happen so fast. She seemed to be doing pretty good not that long ago, but that’s what this nasty disease does.  May you and your family find comfort in how she passed and how she lived!  Prayers to you all,

Steph,  I'm so sorry for your loss. Teri was a gem. I met her in person at one of the Lungevity conferences in DC.  She was a  role model and an inspiration to everyone who met her, whether on-line or in person. It sounds she died the same way she lived: making her own decisions and doing it her way. That's an inspiration, too. I'm so glad that you were able to help her these last few months and that you were with her when she died. I won't ever forget Teri and I won't forget you, either, even though I never met you in person. Your mom spoke of you with such love and pride.

My heart goes out to your family. I know you grieve your mom’s loss but battling lung cancer is so difficult. Sadly, cancer often wins. 

I applaud supporting your mom’s hospice decision. She knew best about treatment mayhem. Often, families try to push for more treatment. There is a tipping point in this disease and your mom knew it. Thank you for respecting her wishes. 

I feel like there is a vast hole in our forum community. Your mom was a pillar of support offering wise advice for everyone here. She helped so many. We morn her passing and honor her memory. 

Stay the course.

Hi everyone! We had my Mom's celebration of life yesterday. We recorded the whole thing for those who were unable to attend. You can watch the recordings here: https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fo/p6murlvilouoyyr5o448g/h?dl=0&rlkey=zsmdwv7sy13igagcfj3fzpqxn
