This is the most difficult blog post that I have ever made.
It is with a heavy and broken heart that I have to announce that my Mom, Doris Makoski, passed away tonight. She was 83 and died due to complications from cancer. Thankfully, she passed peacefully in her sleep with my sister and my brother-in-law and me at her bedside.
My mom is the person most responsible for who and what I am. She taught me a lot and always told me to never be afraid to do the things that I wanted to do.
While I am happy that she is no longer suffering and in pain; and that she's gone on to the reward that she so richly deserves, I cannot describe to you the loss and void that I am feeling right now.
If you would remember her in your prayers, it would be appreciated.
