We love ya', Blue.
I hope you understand that these sentiments from us all aren't hollow ones. I think there are a great many of us who, even though we've never spoken to or met you face-to-face, consider you a real live person in our lives. At news of your loss, we are truly, even painfully, sorry.
You've always suprised me with your grace, Mr. B; now more than ever. I believe I'm paraphrasing what someone else has written here in the last few days, but it's my beliefe that your personality reflects on your upbringing. That said, and if the descriptions & annecdotes that you've shared with us about your mother over the years are any indication, we are all, as a race, short one less exceptional person, now.
May we all (us guys, we gals) do our best to pull up this new slack. It would be the right thing to do.
I'm so very sorry for your loss, Blue. If there's ever (now or later) anything we (as a mob, or as individuals) can do (in general or in particular), please say so.
Thoughts on you and your family,
