Out of the Blue

With immeasurable sadness, our family had to let go of my mom yesterday. She died at 3:35 p.m., leaving a hole in my and many other lives that can never be filled.

Thanks to all of you who have expressed kind thoughts on the subject of her condition. She was a strong believer of the importance of community, and was quite familiar with her identity here as MamaBlue, and she would have considered the support so many have shown to be a fine example of the benefits of a communal spirit. Likewise, my own thoughts are with the many of you who have described your own families' struggles with illness -- you have my sympathies.

Finally, thanks to Frans for his help catching up on today's news. I'm sure there are many questioning the need for me to jump back into this so soon, but it's been a good distraction, and with a funeral this weekend I really wanted to clear my plate to keep the backlog of news from being stressful and to prevent it from getting any more overwhelming.

What can I say that hasn't been said here already.

I'm never good with words (especially in these circumstances).

I wish you all the strength in the coming time.

Many in the community have expressed their own personal experiences with losing a loved one and that they understand the pain your feeling. My wife's mother died the same day our first daughter was born so believe me: I know what your going through.

Just remember you've got your family, friends, and this community that are here to support you as you've supported us for so many years.

Best wishes to you and yours Blue.

I lost my best friend, basically a brother, a few years ago. One of the worst things I've gone through. Stick in there and remember God's always there for you!

When that blood rush, hair raising tingle washes over your body, I will be the cause. When fear commits itself to your every thought, I will be the reason.

there must be something wierd going on. Blue loses two moms, my mom gets a hysterectomy (benign cyst thankfully).

I can't imagine, or even want to try, how you must be feeling Blue. I know it won't be over with just a cry and you'll be bearing it for quite a while. You won't grieve like you think you will, and never feel guilty to feel happy when you are grieving. Grief doesn't always bring tears.

All I know is, when you are feeling bad, try to have someone around who will do things to make you smile and laugh, even it's just one lousy joke that makes you grin. It helps break up the tears.

Blue, not much to say except, I'm sorry for your family's loss. I know how you feel, I lost my Dad to cancer on Feb 18, 2002, he was young 74.

Gotta go now........eyes seem to be leaking water.

Peace and love to you and your family.
