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.

I'm real sorry for your and your family's loss mate.

I lost my Mum coming up on almost two years ago now, to almost identical circumstances.

The best advice I got at the time is that it may takes years to get through the mourning process and that noone can tell you how you should feel, even it it seems wrong at times.

My best to you and those her knew your Mum.

I, like many others, have been a visitor for many years but have not posted until now. I am sorry to hear of your loss.

I lost my mother to cancer almost 4 years ago, and my grandmother (on my mother's side) to a stroke last year. In time the sadness was replaced with fond memories. I can only hope that the same will happen for you.

Very sad for your loss, it is the worst thing in the world to lose somebody you love, especially the person who gave you life and then nurtured you throughout it. My deepest sympathies for you and your family.

Thoughtful people outside a family measure the qualities of a parent by the gentleness, concern, warmth, wit, and honor of their children. In the years I've been reading your site on a daily basis, I've been impressed by you. Mama Blue did a wonderful job, and I'm sure you were the highlight of her life. My deepest condolences on her passing, but know that both you and she had reason to be proud of each other. The vast majority of human beings never approach that level of accomplishment.

Immeasurable sadness indeed. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family Blue. I hope you find comfort from your sadness.

Not sure if you believe in the afterlife and all that, but I do and I feel strongly that you'll see her again some day. Hope you can find a little peace in that.

Take care old buddy.

Blue,
Sorry about your loss. You do so much for us every single day, please let us know if we can return the favor. Stay strong and this too shall pass.

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.
