Today one of my friends Zane lost his mother. I am simply asking for everyone to keep Him and his brother in your thoughts, just shy of 6 months ago, Zane lost his best friend, Levi to suicide. He was really struggling with depression and self worth before Levi took his life, and his emotional problems escalated a great deal after his death. I know for a fact that his mom was his rock through it all, the person in his life that understood his pain.
Zane's mom, Corinna, had been struggling with pneumonia for over a week, but was expected to make a full recovery at home. Friday (yesterday) morning She was home alone and was snacking on a mango when she started choking on the mango and passed out. She was found several hours later by a family member and was unresponsive. She was rushed to a local hospital and then transferred to a hospital an hour away and was declared brain dead last night. Her family decided early this morning to let her go, and shut off her life support.
I am not really sure, what has been plaguing my community, but death needs to take a vacation from wyoming for a while. Corinna's death marks the 12th death in our small community of 5,000 in the last year.
