  7. Kristen,
    My thoughts are with you and your family during this time. Your mom was a phenomenal woman. I lost my mother a few years ago and still feel her presence next to me every day. I hang on to our countless memories and find solace in knowing she is in a better place, full of peace, and is free from pain. Stay strong and know that your IBM Watson Health family is with you.
