34. I'm most sorry to hear your mom is so ill. It must be very tough.
When I was much younger, I used to think I'd be prepared once I was much older for the passing of my mom. (Very fortunately, that is not an issue currently). Now that I am much older, I know I'll never be prepared.

You have my sincerest sympathy.
