Sadly, Mom has gone.

My mother passed away the evening of October 27/21. While it was expected, it still came as a shock and was accompanied by an almost crushing feeling. The physical sense of my loss. Time was altered. And the world was silent. Mom was gone.

There will be new reports here as soon as possible.

A Mother’s Crown

“Heaven lit up with a mighty presence, as the Angels all looked down. The Lord was placing the jewel, Into my mother’s crown.”

I’m sorry Rose. My mother is 74. It saddens me to imagine what life would be like without her. It may be expected, but it’s no less of a loss.

Rest your body, mind and soul until your strength returns, Penny. When your Mom departed she left behind the warmth and comfort of her love. In the stillness, in the silence, you will feel your Mom’s last gift and as time passes it will be there to draw upon as needed.

Dear Ms. PennyFor,

My condolences in this your time of bereavment.
Some of us in your public do suspect there might
be some measure of your parents showing in your writings,
but we can not know for sure. Only you can.

My condolences, Pen. A part of those we love becomes a part of us and when they go, we feel that loss acutely. There is a void where your mother’s presence was and it that aches.

I hope, in time, that your loving memories of your mother can fill that void to some extent with a subtle form of your mother’s presence again.
Take care, Pen.

Much condolences Penny. Just recently found you again.

As much as we cherish and love our mothers, I sometimes imagine we will do so even more after there passing. Recalling the precious love and strength they uniquely give us. It is such an unconditional bond.

May God give you strength and honour that will cherish your mother’s soul.

No matter how strong we think ourselves to be, we are never really prepared for the death of a parent.
Take a break from this battle Penny. You will surely pick up your pen when the time is right. Thank you for your efforts.

So sorry to hear that Penny. Take the time you need. No rush. Take Care. Know my Heart and thoughts are with you.

Dear Penny,
So sorry for your loss of one the the most important persons in your life. The pain must be unbearable right now for you and the memories are great but make it that much harder. It’s pain and heart ache we can never wish on even our worst enemies. I wish you well and strength to overcome your pain and sorrow.
Sincerely Rachel

Dearest, I have been taking a couple of days break from the insanity of the internet and just now seeing this. I am very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. As others have said, take your time, come back if/when you feel like it. Praying for you and God bless you and keep you during this difficult time.

Thanks so much for all the really thoughtful comments.
Geez, I can’t get through this without crying… it’s been hard and still is. And expect it will be for a while.
My mom would have wanted me to get on with the business of living. She really would of.
Which addresses Mishko’s comment “Some of us in your public do suspect there might be some measure of your parents showing in your writings” A resounding yes on that!
So, I’m going to work at getting on with life.

I appreciate every blessing, every word of support and all the prayers that have been offered.
Each of them helped to soften the blow and ease the pain. Or gave me a smile when I needed to.
Thank You all for being so generous and kind

Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry.
I am not there. I did not die.

Dear Penny,
from the bottom of my heart, I send you my sincere condolences. When a parent leaves us, the world changes completely. I have been there too. But one thing is certain, in our heart and in our thoughts they are always with us

“When a parent leaves us, the world changes completely”

Yes, I understand that now. That’s how it felt the night mom died. As if the world had changed.
