Hard imagining life without you...

My mother,
October 1, 1924 - November 9, 2010


  1. Peace to you and your family. You were indeed blessed.

  2. Though you knew this was coming, that knowledge does nothing to ease your pain. Stuart, I am so very sorry.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you today.

  4. You have your readers deepest sympathy, we look forward to hearing more about your mother and her sense of humor, in you blog. Your Mother lives on in you and your great sense of humor. With Love and Aloha - Drewbe

  5. Nothing one can say, except that I'm sorry, and for whatever it's worth, I'm keeping her (and especially you) in my prayers.

  6. So sorry for your loss. Treasure your memories.

  7. I know these past few months have been tough, but that doesn't make this any easier. I'm so sorry.

  8. Long may her spirit live.

    Take good care of yourself, Stu.

  9. Thoughts are with you! So sorry for your loss.

  10. That sucks. Peace to you and your family

  11. Honey, my thoughts, heart, and love are with you and your marvelous hub. I'm here for you and apologies for the late reply. I'm so sorry.

    Much love.

  12. Hey everyone-

    Thanks for the condolences. I'm doing well, amazingly so. There was nothing between us left unsaid, and I was with her for her final six hours, so I was there when it happened. Will write about it when everything settles - just taking some time for now.


  13. Oh honey I'm so sorry to hear this news. I kept holding out that she would rally. Sorry for your loss.

  14. I am so sorry.
    sending positive thoughts your way.xo

  15. I think she was a cool gal--with a cool son.

  16. Bruce-

    Thank you. She was something. And I'm glad that I'm something, else. Hugs.

    Mr. Bluehaunt-

    Positive thoughts warmly received and put to good use.

    I was hoping that she'd be with us for my birthday next week, but she's with me now, always.

    I did and thank you for the "PM". and everything else.

    Donna Lethal-
    Never too late for hugs, cyber or otherwise. Most of us will all go through this in our lives, if you do, I wish you the serenity that I am in at the moment, when your moment arises.

    It does, and believe it or not, it doesn't. That it ended so quickly is a blessing. What sucks is that so much has happened in the past week and its amazing how many times I have wanted to pick up the phone and call her, but will never be able to again.

    Thank you.

    Taking care of myself by staying busy. But as soon as we can work it out, Handsome Hubby and I are taking a real vacation.

    Peenee -
    Thank you. The toughest part of the time was watching what the disease did to her spirit. But that is reborn and one with G*d, so the happy thopughts are all that are left. Hugs, S.

    The memories are worth more to me than the money she left, and the hy-bred car that I am gong to buy with them ;-)

    Sweeite - that is so sweet. Next time you have a glass of a red wine, a toast to her would be marvelous. (She loved a good red wine.)

    I know. You would have loved her. Whenever she saw an old movie with Tyrone Power in it on TV she would lean over to me and said "Tyrone Power could put his shoes under my bed any night!"


    Darling, we have lots of stories, all of them good.

    Shrinky Inky-
    Thank you so much. Sometimes it seems like a dream, and it seems like forever away. At somepoint my head will catch up with my heart, though. Then it will be tough.

    Darling, Norma. Thank you so much for being there over the last two months and beyond. Had she known you, you'd have been in the will, with something good, too! (Mom would have LOVED you extra special).

    Thom -
    When I come out your way, I'd love a hug. It would be safe and oh, so nice.
