    Pete... my deepest condolences. As you may remember, I lost my Mom about a year ago and know what you are going through, buddy. Good thing you've got Elena there to talk with.

    Thanks so much Pete for taking the time to share a bit of your family history and details about your mother with us. What a special lady! She has definitely been a positive influence on the world. And she definitely passed it on to you, because you also exhibit a great capacity for kindness and understanding to those who need and/or deserve it. I am going to make it a point to reform the first bigot I come across in her honor :D

    Pete,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I copied the following from of all things a Hallmark card that I had from years ago. I think it is simple & beautiful & right for the moment for you & your family.
    "As you remember the love,
    as you mourn the loss,
    may you also celebrate the life"

    and what a life your mother had.

    My sympathy to you & your family

    NetDoc,

    Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. It sounds like she had a fun filled life, and will be missed by all those that got to know her. Just think, she's up there healthy and happy again!
