Peace for her now that her struggle is over. Honor to you for sacrificing for her.I also started to play when I came home to take care of my mother when she was diagnosed with cancer. I luckily had a much more desirable result. I just sent her and dad off on their first vacation since she got better. But it hurts to know how close it was, and that people in the same spot weren't so lucky. One of the best things was a few weeks ago. I was helping her grocery shop at Wally-world (Yes, she likes it for some forsaken reason), and we went by the electronics department and they had an end cap of games, with WoW and time cards. She picked one up and said, "Do you need one of these for your game?" I told her no, I just gotten one, and she responded with, "oh, ok, I understand how much it means to you. I don't want you to run out." She threw it in the cart anyway. I think she somewhere in these last 3 years she got it, and that was the best thing I'd heard in a long time. Maybe she just likes me spending less on other things, I don't know. But she didn't treat it with the hostility other family members meet it with, and it's comforting.Off topic, I'm an archivist. If you'd like info on how to preserve those photos (and trust me, they are the single best thing to keep if you keep nothing else), i'd be very happy to give you some information. Contact me when you can, David.Strength and honor.
