     Mom died of Alzheimer's on September 17, having been cared for by her granddaughter (3 1/2 yrs) and I (2 1/2 yrs)at home since January 2005. Her care was the most exhausting, difficult task I've ever undertaken. Now, nearly a month "After Mom", I am beginning to feel a true sense of peace in knowing that despite all my shortcomings and imperfection, I did my best, and that is all any of us can do.
