"Mom was everything. Strong but sensitive. Stubborn but open-minded. Vulnerable but with a will of iron. Mom was other-focused -- husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, brothers and sisters (whether blood or chosen). Yet, she shone through. She will be missed, but she will never be gone from our hearts. Mom was everything. She is gone. But, amazingly, we still have everything. Your Son, John"
