My deepest condolences go out to you and your family. I know you're feeling a lot of remorse right now. I know what you're going through. My mother passed away 15 years ago with a sudden heart attack at the age of 58. Sudden death is the worst, you're in shock, angry, etc. I feel your pain and I know you'll find strength to go on but it will definitely take a long recovery. From what I know you are stong and I hope thats enough to get through your toughest challenge ever to continue to skate for your country. I brought the book "motherless daughter" and its very good, it has a lot of stories about daughters that loss their mom, the grief that you're going through and no one knows what your going through right now only the people that experience it themself. Best of luck in your skate Joannie. Canada is proud to have you represent our country in the olympics and good luck in your recovery.

My heart is troubled for you. Your Mom will see you skate and be proud of you even though you can't be close to her. Bless you in your time of sorrow I will pray for you to be comforted and also to do well for your own sake and your Mom's. She would want you to be happy with whatever the outcome of the Olympics. We are all proud of you with or without a medal. Anita.

Words really do not comfort much, but knowing this many people are thinking of you and your mother might help a little. I lost my mother 4 months ago and I still do not believe it. I keep storing up everything I and my children have been doing over the last 4 months so I can tell her about it and then I remember I can't. Good luck, it is terrible especially when your mother is a daily influence in your life. Nothing heals the pain, your mind is just able to block it out sometimes.
