My dear Starshine. I am so very, very sorry. I wish I could reach you and hug you. Your mom was one of the most wonderful people I've ever known in real or cyber life. She was everything Shortbun said! I was in awe of her. We "spoke" via private message often in the last few months and I miss her deeply. She took the time and energy to offer me support and encouragement even when she must have been exhausted. She loved you so very much and was incredibly proud of you.
