Sad News, Guys.

Post by Minimalist » Wed Jan 02, 2008 7:08 pm

I got a message from Michelle that she'll be off line for a while as her Mom has passed away.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Earlier when I checked Arch. News I saw that she had said there was a death in the family. Losing her Mom is very sad. My sympathy to Michelle and family.

I am very sorry to hear that.

I lost my mother a few years ago, and it was a real loss.

You only have one, and it is a big hole for a long time when they are gone.

I'm sorry to hear that Michelle. Best wishes and kind thoughts during this time.

Also, just a note of appreciation for YOU...when I came to read the news and saw your note I thought WOW she really does a great service for all of us...I tended to take it for granted but when it wasn't there I sure took notice.

Thanks Michelle for all you do here!

I wish I'd thought to say that Clubs, you are so right.
Based on my own recent experience I can assure posters that people's good wishes do help.
