Valley of Shadows

My mother, Gloria Byrne Weddle, died on August 12th, 1996.  It was one of the most traumatic and profoundly moving experiences of my life.  In December of 2000 I wrote about it in an article for the San Francisco Chronicle Magazine.  Six months later I wrote a companion piece about my father for Los Angeles Times Magazine.  To read that article, click on this link: The Good War.

Like the article about my father, this one provoked a tidal wave of reactions from readers who wanted to share their experiences about the deaths of their parents.

Here’s the article:
