Checking In

   Apologies for the lack of posts for the past few days - I've been recovering from a personal tragedy.

   My mother passed away a few days ago.

   It's a hard thing to bear, though it wasn't a surprise - she had been in poor health for the last couple of years, and the last few months have been especially difficult for her.

   But it's still a shock to lose her - she was a wonderful, giving person who devoted much of her life to caring for others. Her funeral was a wonderful celebration of her life and how much people loved her.

   I appreciate your patience with me - I expect to be back to publishing on Wednesday.

   Hug your loved ones, folks - you never know how much time you have together.

My sincerest condolences, Chuck. My own mother passed away on Feb.29. She was 87 & in poor health so it was not a shock. But she was the heart and soul of our family.

Thanks for the kind wishes, everyone.

Anon, sorry for your loss. Yes, even when you expect it (as we did, too), it's still a difficult thing to deal with.

Sorry for your loss. We're about the same age and I lost both my parents in the past 8 years. It's not easy, even though it's not a surprise.
