I can see you are a lovely person in reading this as most people would maybe be bitter. You are looking at your mothers decision with an open mind. You must have had some good influences in your life, its lovely to read, and speaks volumes about you as a person.
This is a really pretty peice both in subject, language and , structure it is the kind of peice people in similair situations could easily relate and be important to them. I found it really interesting, not having exereinced this myself and also because my mum died at an early age so I found the comparison helpful for my own feelings. i have also written a peice ot my mum 'Shells for mum' I'd Love it if you had a look.
