This blog used to be about Mat's cancer. He passed away on Valentine's Day, 2011, and now it's about life without Mat. I didn't pick this life, but it is mine. I'm trying to embrace it with both arms.
Happy: A Quest for Life After Death

My mom, 1944-2011
My mom died today, much sooner than I expected. Last month, I was afraid her bout with cancer would be a re-run of Mat's. I almost wish it had been five long years instead of five short months. For her sake I'm glad she didn't suffer more. Selfishly, I wish I had been able to say good-bye.
