You and yours will be in my prayers.
I am sorry for your loss.

Rodak said...

Thank you so much, Marie Therese.

Moose said...

Rob, you have my deepest condolences and prayers. I hope that the wealth of memories you have of your mother help to ease the pain of your loss.

Take care, my friend.

Rodak said...

Thank you very much, Moose. I've missed sparring with you, buddy. I hope that you are well and reasonably happy!

Tracie Skarbo said...

Again Rob you are in my thoughts...big strengthening hugs to you and your family.

Rodak said...

Much appreciated, Norway!

Rob, obviously words, especially for someone as ineloquent as me, are at a loss at a moment such as this. However, I remember what a good cyber-friend you were when I lost my dad a couple of years ago.

All I can say is that you were obviously fortunate to have such a wonderful mother, as "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree." So, even though I never met her, I know your mother had to be a wonderful, wonderful human being because of the talented, humane son she produced.

The only thing I can really say from my own experience is that the words of this R.E.M. are very true, and I wish you and your family nothing but the best

Rodak said...

MS--That was VERY eloquent. Thanks so much; your kindness is uplifting.

Oh EG...
You and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love to you my friend..I share words that were recently shared with me at my time of loss:

"When he shall die
Take him and cut him out in little stars
And he will make the face of heav'n so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun."
~William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Thank you, MCB. I have thought of your recent loss several times in the past few days. I haven't forgotten. God bless.
