Rochelle, Sorry about your loss, it's a void that does not get filled with the loss of a parent. What ypur mom's generation went thru is really a triumph of the human spirit, well before PTSD survivors of that era resumed normal lives and truly defined life by becoming parents and grandparents. As a result the world is a better place!
