Issued condolences via FB this morning. Very tragic when a loving mother and friend passes away. Only the most sincere wishes for strength and love to TV and his family.

Thank you.
And thank you starting this thread.
As you can probably imagine I'm not in the best frame of mind right now.
I haven't slept or stopped crying since Saturday.
Once the fog lifts a bit, I'll respond more throughly.

Love all around.

Vee

Exactly this ^^

I loved reading your banter back and forth with her. She's pretty awesome. I am so, so sorry for your loss.

Michael,

I've been trying to come up with the right words all week.
Still, I have nothing.
There are no words.

I lost my dad in '99 and I had 7 years to prepare for it so I can't imagine losing a parent suddenly.
Time will ease your pain though.

The more you talk about her the better you will feel.
15 years after my dad died I still have moments where I let loose with tears.
It's usually when I am reminded of him.
Since he was a fireman it was every time I hear an emergency vehicle.
Now when I hear a siren I smile.
I hope you can get to that place soon.

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to say thank you once again for not only starting this thread, but for all the condolences, well wishes and kindness.
I truly and sincerely appreciate every single phone call, email, text message, Facebook post or comment left here.
Every time someone took a moment to let me know they were thinking about me and my family, it made a despairingly grim day that much brighter.
And for that, I will never be able to thank you enough.

I won't lie.
This has hit me hard.
I know that's an odd thing to say. Of course losing a parent is hard.
But the complete out-of-the-blue unexpectedness of her death and the finality of everything involved with the arrangements, has just left me empty.
For those that were privy to our back and forth conversations on Facebook, you know that she wasn't just my mother, but my closest friend.
I'm sad that she's gone and I'm sad that you'll never get to meet her.

I won't drag this out and bring everybody down...I just want to say that if it wasn't for the overwhelming support of my friends, my family and my FOMily, I wouldn't be able to type this now.
So thank you.
Sincerely and from the heart.
Thank you.

Vee
