The depression came to a head almost 10 years ago and she died of cancer 8 ago.

The depression was like nothing I'd ever seen. It was (how can I put this?) Biblical in its horror. All the meaning of life stuff thrown in. But what it did do (albeit at way too much cost) was to bring my mother to some sort of peace and at least give us time and space together in the last 2 years of her life, during which I had a lot of fun with her. It was like something out of hell that turned into something heavenly. After that the cancer was just management of symptoms and the whole grind of dying.
