Sorry to hear. Dont worry too much about keeping a stiff upper lip and all that, you are allowed to let your emotions out and it can feel a lot better after.

All the best gaasc - maybe you can find comfort in the fact that at over 100 years of age, she had a long (and hopefully fulfilled) life...

My condolences, I am sorry for your loss.

Now, be the very best person you can be; so that lady would be so proud of you, and her efforts to help bring you up properly have met with reward for her up there.

That sums up nicely.
Hang in there and don?t despair.

When you have an elderly person living at home, you know that their day is sooner rather than later. I suppose however that nothing can actually prepare you for when the day actually comes.

The stroke was too much for her. A CT scan showed her brain lying in a pool of blood, or so I'm told

I hate funerals, I always stand there looking like an idiot, hoping my rubber face doesn't betray me.

It seems I'm the only one keeping a level head right now, reckon the penny hasn't quite dropped yet.


Apologies if I seem a bit dramatic for a couple of days, it's just that one of the most important persons of my life has passed on The woman that made me hate coffee,took care of my as both of my parents worked, the list goes on.I never even got to say goodbye.

So sorry to hear it, gaasc. my condolences to you and your family. You may not have that "penny drop" moment, at least I didn't. Just don't feel guilty either way, you've clearly shown what she meant to you.

nitpicking time! ;D

why does the film industry have such a difficult time making prop rocks (or fake rocks) look real?
Movies that have budgets over 150 million rarely do it right.
Because they feel like they can't use real ones somehow? :p IDK. I've never really noticed to be honest. :p

God I missed this forum. Lost power for two and a bit days and cable for three days. Just narrowly avoided insanity somehow. We lost 5 trees from the winds, our neighbor's huge 130 ft pine tree came down and took out a few more. My whole town was with out power.

There should be a rule that if you've been ill then once you are better again you can't be ill again for a few months after that :mad:

There is. It's just that God/The Doctor/FSM/whoever is in charge plays by the 'rules are made to be broken' rule. Hope you're OK, Wig!

And gaasc, I'm very sorry for your loss. Grieve in whatever way feels right for you. :comfort:

My deepest condolences and sympathies Gaasc. It's extremely difficult to do this, I know, but focus on all the positives and happy moments you've had with her. Be strong, don't concern yourself about rubber faces, people will not dislike it if you talk about her positively. In fact they may appreciate positive thoughts and memories of her. If you ever need to let out, we are all here for you, PLEASE don't hesitate to PM me, I would be greatly happy to listen/read and help you along if I can.


Don't worry about that 'penny drop' moment. Trust me when I say that it will come when it comes and it's the greatest sense of relief and positive movement ever. But don't concern yourself about it, ride the wave and let it come when it comes. We will be here to provide you a virtual shoulder for that moment.
