Hello My Dear Friends,

There will be no post this week on space2live. My lovely mom’s suffering (from the symptoms of ALS) ended last Saturday. She passed away peacefully with a smile and a tear before she took her last breath. My sister, brother-in-law and I have been deeply involved with taking care of all the details that arise when someone you love dies, including planning the most beautiful and meaningful memorial service ever.

Please, in lieu of reading a space2live post this week, take time to listen, encourage and be patient with those close to you. Send a note, give a hug, say thank you, say I love you. My mother was an extrovert but our different temperaments never stopped the love from flowing. She was steadfastly in my corner. I’ll miss that lady.
