    What is her first name, I will pray for her more now than before. I am sorry for you man, really.

    I know streams of bits from uncertain persons across a network cannot offer real solace - but I offer it to you. My sympathies and sadness for your loss.

    Someday, the sun will rise again. Try not to forget that, in the midst of difficulty.

    I leave you with this... I turn to it often - can't say that it helps:

    Me and my friend were walking
    In the cold light of morning
    Tears may blind the eyes
    But the soul is not deceived
    In this world even winter ain't what it seems

    Here come the blue skies
    Here comes springtime
    When the rivers run high
    And the tears run dry
    When everything that dies
    Shall rise

    Love, Love,
    Love is stronger than death
    Love, Love,
    Love is stronger than death

    In our lives we hunger
    For those we cannot touch
    All the thoughts unuttered
    And all the feelings unexpressed
    Play upon our hearts
    Like the mist upon our breath
    But, awoken by grief, our spirits speak:

    "How could you believe
    That the life within the seed
    that grew arms that reached
    And a heart that beat
    And lips that smiled
    And eyes that cried
    Could ever die?"

    Here come the blue skies
    Here comes springtime
    When the rivers run high
    And the tears run dry
    When everything that dies
    Shall rise

    Love, Love
    Love is stronger than death
    Love, Love
    Love is stronger than death

    Shall rise, Shall rise
    Shall rise, Shall rise

      Random bits from uncertain persons offer solace just fine, thank you: Depending on beliefs, we are just random bits of DNA with delusions of existence, life and consciousness. Thank you again.

      This sums up my sentiments nearly perfectly. You have my thoughts and well-wishes.

    I'm sorry for your loss, even though it also marks an end of her suffering.

      Words aren't enough, in and of themselves, but so many of us take for granted that words - random vibrations floated on air, represented by squiggles on paper or patterns of bits - are vehicles for concepts, thoughts, feelings, all of which are most helpful and appreciated.
      Thank you.

    I am also glad for her relief. My mom went through much the same. :-(

      Thank you. Sorry for your loss of your mom as well. One would think, with all of the brain power and money thrown at this set of diseases that we'd be closer to an outright cure by now. Maybe that'll be her legacy, it'll be her body (donated) that will give them the missing clue.

    And I hope very much for a cure. It takes too many people too young.

    I am glad that you had the time that you did, and I know that she felt your love along the way.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I know she is in a better place and her suffering is over, and that there is some solace in that. But I can only imagine the hole in your heart. I know that counseling has helped me with my own separation, and would highly recommend it for your grief.

    Hang in there, I will keep you in my thoughts, and I'll raise a glass of the good stuff in her honor.
    • by RM6f9 (825298)

      Thank you. Quick question, given the entire "De Gustibus..." thing, what do *you* consider "the good stuff"? I have all this free time, and Portland is only ~3 hrs...

      • To me "The Good Stuff" is single malt. I raised some some Bunnahabhain [whisky.com] in her memory last night, and said a few words in her honor as well. Granted I was alone, but I still think it matters. If you want to come down this weekend I would certainly make some time for you. Saturday afternoon perhaps?
        • by RM6f9 (825298)

          Single malt, yea, verily, yummy - how old?
          Thank you - not Saturday, nor next, as I have plans - how does Sun work for you?
