Sorry to hear about your loss, Andy. Mums are near and dear to us. My mum just became homeless. I don't know what to do for her. I'm barely surviving myself, always one paycheck away from being homeless myself. She is staying with friends though.
My aunt passed away in '98 from melanoma cancer. Usual story...thought they got it all until it came back with a vengeance. Fast forward...in her dying days I came to visit. She had a stroke and was bed-ridden and couldn't talk anymore. But the most inhumane thing was that my uncle absolutely refused her any pain medication. No morphine or opiates or anything like that. She was in such pain that you could just see the horror of it all on her face. It was one of the most awful things I have ever seen and I don't talk to that bastard uncle of mine to this day.
