    Default Chi_town/Philly's Mother

    Chi_town/Philly's mother is in extremely ill health and not expected to live much longer. He has left us temporarily to be with his immediate family in this time of crisis.

    In his absence, please direct questions you may have asked of Chi_town/Philly dealing with forum matters to any one of the other forum mods/admins.

    We will keep you posted about any other news we receive about his mother's condition.

    I lost my mother 4 years ago. It's a tough ride but you'll be stronger. Mothers wait for you.
    You have my deepest sympathies, Chi.

    May God grant his mother strength to bear the illness and to give her the company of her son's presence. May He also give him the good blessing of sharing moments with her. May their minds be at ease.

    andruini, Elgarian, Weston, Rondo, haydnguy, World Violist,
    Mirror Image, post-minimalist, and tahnak: Thank you--

    My Mother left us in the afternoon hours of August 5th. I had brief internet access during my time away, so I saw virtually all of your messages. They meant a lot to me...

    It's very difficult to impute any positives to such a gut-wrenching experience, but my Mom did not have an overlong period of debilitation (scarcely greater than two months), and was not conscious during her periods of most visible discomfort. There is, I guess, some mercy in that outcome, somewhere....

    Whether your inclination is to thoughts, concerns, or prayer, please spare some for my Father, who has lost his wife of over 50 years. I think if I live to 100 or more, I'll not see another marriage as great as theirs was.

    Well, I've returned now- not entirely the same, to be sure, but still Your Humble Dilettante: CTP.
