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.

There is no reason to question any individual’s methods for dealing with such a loss.

Please take some small comfort from the condolences that so many fine people have conveyed over the past two days.

Obviously, you are a friend to many. Those you know and those you may not.

Take care, friend.

I'm sorry. Though a few words might not help much, know that you have a community who supports you.

She must have been a great woman. A daughter, a lover, a mother, it's too bad she had to leave this world. I'm sorry Blue...

Deeply sorry to hear the news about your mother. I'm a long time reader of this site but have never before felt the need to post. I do now. My most heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family. Don't worry about keeping the news up to date. Give it a break...I'm sure the community would understand. In fact, perhaps you could post no news at all this weekend in honour of MamaBlue. Rather like the five minute silence we have here in the UK on Remembrance day.

All i can really offer you is "Sorry for your loss". It's empty, and it's cliche - But sometimes, the less said the better.

You're in our thoughts.

I got all choked up yesterday reading the hunderds of messages of support for your mum (er... mom), and reading the tragic news today, I just had to sign up and offer my most sincere condolences for your loss.

May the road rise up to meet you, Blue - you can be sure MamaBlue was a fantastic person, if her son is anything to judge her by.
