One year ago today, on June 15, 2016 my mom was diagnosed with late-stage pancreatic cancer.
Three months later she passed away.
It's been a journey and I miss her every day.
Like so many painful things in life, it's often uncomfortable for people to talk about Grief. But those are the topics I feel are some of the most important and so I try to speak and write and share. But sometimes even I feel self-conscious about *still talking about the same thing.
To acknowledge the day, I altered a poem by Gwen Flowers called "Grief" to make it more true to me.
