    As many of us know that Rain has been taking care of her mother and I saw in another thread that her mother passed away and the funeral was yesterday.

    Rain, I want you to know that my prayers are with you and your family. Remember to lean on God and he will help you thru this very difficult time.:hugs::hugs::hugs::hugs::hugs::hugs::hugs::hugs:

    Thank you so much everybody. Mom passed last Saturday, and the service was yesterday (Friday). It was a beautiful service. We are a very small family, but I was overwhelmed when hundreds of friends of my Mom showed up to the service. The church was packed -- they had to print more bulletins. We had a reception afterwards at her country club, and so many of her friends came by to share stories of happier times. It was all very nice.

    I'm staying here 'til after Christmas -- I don't want Dad to be alone on the holiday, but then I need to head home. I've been here for 6 weeks and I really need to get back to my home and life.

    Thanks everyone for the words of support and caring. It means more than you'll ever know.

    I am so fortunate that my school is so supportive. There are many schools that would make it difficult to take an extended leave -- but they took care of everything for me.

    -Rain

    Oh Rain, I've been wondering how things were. I'm so sorry to hear the news. I've been praying for you and your family.

    You have a wonderful school to help so much! It makes things so much easier. What a blessing they are to you.
