Welcome Marniek. I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. Losing a loved one is never easy. One thing I have found though is that the group of people here on the message boards are not only willing to help you reach your goals, they also provide a great support base. I lost my grandmother a few months ago and it was very comforting to read posts about how people were offering condolances and/or prayers for my family. There are some awesome people here and I hope you take the opportunity to get to know them and let everyone here get to know you. I want to wish you luck with your program, and if there is anything any of us can asist you with, please don't hesitate to ask.
