Sorry about your mom, UncleMick. I guess there's an undercurrent of relief there, too.

Re: Life, Death and Investing

Unclemick,

Having lost my Mom to cancer recently, I am empathetic as well as sympathetic. It was an almost surreal experience, one that was tough for the whole family, and very exhausting. We chose hospice, which, in essence, provided for comfort, but no extraordinary measures. Thankfully, she passed with relatively no pain, and was surrounded in her last days by her family...

A salt-of-the-earth, hard working, God-fearing, old-fashioned Mom if there ever was one... They just don't make 'em like that anymore!!

Let me add my condolences to the voices of others!! May 2006 be a much better year, and may you and TNW live happily ever after!!

Re: Life, Death and Investing

unclemick,
who could have imagined such tuff times, and all compressed into a relatively short time period.
I have marveled at your coping abilities thru the flood and SO, and now your Mom. Take particular good care of yourself physically and emotionally, you have taken some hits this year.

UncleMick, I know it was hard to lose one of "the women" I'm sure your sister appreciates all that you did to give her a chance to say goodbye. You are a good brother in addition of everything else that has been said.

Sorry to hear about your mom's passing, UM. Under those circumstances, plans made vs. actions taken can be polls apart.

Best Ragards,

B.

Re: Life, Death and Investing

I agree with Omni, when big losses come one after another it's difficult to find the time, and sometimes the need, to care for oneself.

I enjoy so much your take on life, I'm sure that is due in part to your mother. She must have been quite a lady!

Judy
