Sounds like she made the most of her time. It isn't about your length of time on this earth, it's what you do with it. She didn't let her condition drag her down, that says a great deal for her.

May her family, including you and your daughter, find solace and comfort in that.

Thanks, Jeff. I'm reminded of the quote from Blade Runner:
The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long, and you have burned so very, very brightly.
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

It's funny how relationships have a theme song. This was my most recent one.
