My Mother…

    Sorry for the major delay in posting of late. I’ve had a lot going on over the past couple of weeks. My mother passed away on Thursday December 17th after a 5 year battle with ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease. While we all knew that ALS is incurable, this end was not something any of us liked thinking about, nor did knowing make the reality any easier to digest.

    I consider myself so very fortunate to have so many supportive and loving family and friends. This whole experience would have been considerably more unbearable without them. I also owe a lot to the healing power of music. Music has a way of making you feel infinitely and immediately better.

    While the tears haven’t finished falling, I thank God for all of the happy memories that will undoubtedly keep me going. Rest in Peace Mom. I will love you for always and forever.

    When the rain
    Is blowing in your face
    And the whole world
    Is on your case
    I could offer you
    A warm embrace
    To make you feel my love

    When the evening shadows
    And the stars appear
    And there is no one there
    To dry your tears
    I could hold you
    For a million years
    To make you feel my love

    – Bob Dylan

    • Wishing you peace during this difficult time. Hang in there!

    • I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. ALS is an awful disease, and I know there isn't a cure as of yet, but I know plenty of people are trying.
