We lost our Mom on 12/28/2018 Jacqueline L. Troglia, age 77, of Lynden her pull to our father was too much and she went to join him. This fairy tale of theirs had the appropriate ending leaving us all in shock and saddened to have lost both parents within a year. With that being said, dying from a broken heart is very much real.
