Going to be a bit absent from here the next while, my Mother passed away about 2:00 am today. She had a long happy life up until about six months ago, and really tough the last few weeks. She had a couple strokes and was bed ridden at the end, lost her speech centre a couple weeks ago, so very hard for her. At 92 she saw more of life than many of us will, and she and Dad were married 64 years when he passed in Novemeber '08. She was a genuine lady all her life, and her three sons and their extended families will miss her greatly. Take care all, see you soon.

Thank you so much for your kindness. It's tough that she went through an undignified decline prior to passing, but she and Dad both had a lot to be thankful for in their lives. Would that we all could be so fortunate to have such wonderful years late into their retirement. They spent 20 years in Arizona (Mesa) avoiding our harsh Alberta Winters and just enjoying the fruits of their labours in a life that spanned the horse and buggy and farming during the depression through to active business with the Hudsons Bay and then private retail, to seeing the Space Shuttle and the Saturn V at the Cape. Never did convert ether one of them to rock & roll, but they tolerated three boys growing up in the turbulent 60's and early 70's, and God knows we were no picnic. I was fortunate to have both parents past the age of 91, and I was 51 when Dad went. Few of my friends if any can say the same. Trust me, treasure the moments you have, they are oh so precious.

My condolences to you and yours. 92 is a pretty ripe old age and you will always have those memories . My Mom passed at 86 and before she did she basically said that she was ready for a nice long rest. I hope they meet and get the rest they so deserve.

Budoka - Sorry to hear of your loss. I'm sure she will be remembered often as you ride down the road with the wind in your face and the open raod before you. Three sons, I'm sure there are alot of interesting stories of days gone by.

I can add nothing to all that has been said here by others, except to add my name to all that was said here better by others.

Sorry for the loss of your Mom. Know that she is in a much better place. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers. My Mom is going to be 96 in October and still pretty much on her own. I thank God everyday for her and the joy she brings to our family.
