My friends mom died Friday......she had only been diagnosed with a brain anuerysm 2 weeks before, had the surgery a week before. But, she feel into a coma, and just never woke up.
I can't even grasp it. Just 42, and no warning, no time to deal, say her goodbyes, her "I love you's". Not that I was particularly close to her, or her daughters for that matter, but in a small town like this (3000 people) it's always felt. She was involved in EVERYTHING, and shes one of those people that always smiled, always said hello.
So, that's what we remember......her smile.
