Please excuse me if you've received this twice, or shouldn't have received it at all. I'm Maureen's son, and collected your e-mails either from friends, or off my mothers computer.
I expect that this e-mail will come as much of a shock to you as it did to me. As some of you may know, my mother has been sick for several months now. I expect that since she kept the true nature of her illness from her family that she did the same from you as well. From what I can understand from talking to her doctors, my mother was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer that was already quite advanced early this spring.
This week my mother slipped into a coma and yesterday afternoon passed away peacefully at the Charles Lemoyne Hospital. I'm sure that I will not be the only one to greatly miss her and felt that I should let as many of her friends know as possible. I don't think my mum should have had to carry this burden by herself in her last months.
She will be missed by all..
