Default Sounds like she was amazing

I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I read her obit and it sounds like the world has lost another great person. 45 years with one company! WOW! She must have been a strong and stable person. Her hobbies and implied demeanor make her sound like the mom or grandmom we would all want to have. It sounds as if you were lucky to have her as she was lucky to have you.

Much heartfelt love,

sorry to hear of your loss. you are in my prayers. peace and love to you and the rest of your family.

Hear the rime of the ancient mariner
See his eye as he stops one of three
Mesmerises one of the wedding guests
Stay here and listen to the nightmares of the sea.

And the music plays on, as the bride passes by
Caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale.

Having recently lost my father to the long, slow decline into Parkinson's Disease, I completely sympathize.

When we lose someone close to us, we cannot help but examine our beliefs and either draw strength from them or cast them aside.

I hope you take this opportunity to draw strength from yours. That's what it's all about. And help others to draw strength from theirs. Whatever their view.

-Be well.

Liberal, Atheist, and just as Patriotic as you.

My sincerest condolences to you and your family. Times like this are never easy, even if one's passing is not completely unexpected. My prayers are for the Lord to strengthen you and your family in dealing with the loss of your mother and to comfort you with the knowledge that she is free from pain and suffering.

With sympathy,

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore .

Children are a message that we send
to a time that we will never see.

Just wanted to say that Michelle and I are thinking of you in this sad time.
Fate can seem terribly unjust in ending a life in such a way. I feel sure that the love and support of you and your family was a great comfort for your mum at the end.
