My mom passed away on 4th July. Me and my sisters were there with her throughout this time. It's been 3 weeks n I still don't feel accepting this. She was our best friend. Strong. Fierce . Independent. A doctor herself. So many people came for her funeral . Relatives. Ex students. Patients . I felt so so proud to be her daughter. This disease took so much from her. From us. Maybe with time the pain we are feeling Wud dull a little. Right now it seems impossible. I wish the very best to every member and caretaker here. May God be with you all
