Joannie Rochette's mother dies of a heart attack

Just announced it on TV, two days before her performance. They said she will still participate in her events. All the best to her and her family.

So sad - she was only 55.

Much respect to Rochette for deciding to skate.

Ugh. Absolutely terrible. I don't even know what to say. I would totally understand if she wants to grieve and not participate. Rest in peace, my thoughts are with her family.

That takes a pretty strong person to be able to continue after such a tragic loss.

My condolences to the Rochette family.

Just decided to still compete is an incredible accomplishment. Seems that Thérèse was her biggest fan and they were really really close. Even if she decided to not do it, it would be totally understandable.

Just a sad and tragic moment.

poor girl.. that will be so hard to concentrate. Can you imagine if she wins a medal after that? It's going to be a story that we'll remember for years to come.

good luck

this is just hitting way too close as my uncle just died from liver cancer yesterday.

I hope she has the performance of her life for her mother.
