I know she will be missed. Your mom obviously lead a full and rewarding life, and I am grateful to her for giving the world you.

Oh dear, dear Cameron.

Losing a beloved mother always hurts, no matter what your age. It's hard to look around the world, that seems, infuriatingly, otherwise unchanged, and know she's no longer there, isn't it? For as long as you've been alive, she's been there. You even revert to trying out mouthing the name used to address her as a baby, a child; not mom, or Mother. Maybe mummy, or a pet name. Now you have to go on without her? Someone who's played an integral part of your developing human psyhe? Feels odd, not quite right, doesn't it?

Be grateful that you've had the chance to grow up with her, and to bestow upon her, for however a brief a time, a grandson.

I lost mine at the age of 14 1/2, and her death impacted my life dramatically.

You mother lived hearty. She lived with a loving fmaily. And she held on, God bless her soul,to watch her Marjorie get married, beating the odds.

Apparently Lenny Kravitz' mother did the same with her illness, not wanting to spoil the date of her granddaughters' birthday.

You have my empathy, my support, comfort, tissues, and, most of all, hugs.


- Sincerely,
Tricia ("Babyguru")
