A lovely lady and a wonderful life. Take care Jerry.

I'm so sorry, Jerry. I know it's been coming, but it's still so sad. I always love reading about her. I'm so very very sad for your father. God Bless all of you.

I am so sorry. Even if it was for the best, it doesn't change how we still want our mother around. If you need anything, give me a call.

And, just some advice - I've buried both my parents. You are going to be very busy and stressed for the next few days. You will be getting up earlier and going to sleep much later, just to add to the strain. At some point, you will have to take care of yourself - even if it's just to tell everyone that you need a nap, because you're about to drop. Your family will understand - that is part of why they are there. So, don't forget to take care of yourself - even if it's just a nap or an afternoon away - whatever recharges your batteries. I felt obligated to "be there" for everyone else until I was worn to a frazzle. So, hang in there buddy, and know you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry for you and your family's loss. Please accept my condolences.

I've been thinking of you all day - my phone is on the fritz, so I couldn't call. And we'll be in Germany this week, so I'm guessing I'll miss the funeral. My whole family sends their regards.
You have lots of fans at the Red Key, they all send their condolences. Know that you are loved!

I'm so sorry about your loss. She's in a wonderful place. Take care of yourself.

Jerry , may she enjoy her new home, where pain ans suffering doesn't exist.

My prayers go out for your mother...

I'm very sorry for your loss. Be well.

Heaven is rejoicing but I know how much she is missed on Earth. Jeffro gave you good advice I think. It is a tiring time. You are all in my prayers.

Prayers and condolences from here.

Char and I send our condolences. Will keep you and your family in our prayers.

Condolences from our home to yours...I am sure you have many sweet memories of her, and may you have a moment or two in the next couple of days to recall them...

It is hard loosing a Mother..and a Wife.


My condolences to you and your family, Jerry, especially to your dad.

Know that thoughts are with you and your family during this time. No matter the circumstances, this is never an easy time. May the light shine down on you and your family now and in the days ahead, and may it have an extra bit of warmth from her love for you in it.

Just Damn! (Sigh)

Your entire family is in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest sympathies for your loss.

Sorry about your Mom Jerry. I know she was special lady and meant the world to you and yours. I'm in Denver right now. I'll be in touch. Cliff

Prayers, and hugs, from South Dakota~

My sincere condolences go out to you and yours Jerry.

So sorry for your loss, from a long-time reader in w10ac.

My condolences to you and your family.

And please consider Jeffro's advice and be sure to take care of yourself.

Deepest condolences to you and your fam, and thank you, also, for sharing your witty and heartfelt stories of your time with her and the rest of your family (particularly my favorite quip a few months ago about wrapping them in bubble wrap -- I laughed for days over that one). I'm glad that her last meal was chocolate cake and strawberries.

Erica says it perfectly. I'm so sorry for your loss Jerry.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Glad she was at home when she passed. It sure beats being at a hospital. Keep a close eye on your Dad as he deals with losing his life long partner.

We are very sorry for your loss, Jerry. Please know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

.... I worry for your Father, sir..... 65 years, my goodness........ I hope that you and yours are well..... you guys are in my thoughts....

Sorry for your loss, particularly on this day.

All The Best,
Frank W. James

I'll be keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers, expecially your Father. Thank you for sharing your family with us.


Sending you a big ol' Tennessee hug wrapped up in prayers. May your dad find the strength that he needs....Just so sorry. Take care of yourself...pleae heed the advice of those who have walked in your shoes. Love in the name of Jesus....

My prayers to you & your family. No matter how much we try to rationalize it, no matter how many times we tell ourselves "it was coming" or "everybody has to deal with the loss of a parent eventually", it's always a heartbreaker when it finally happens. Nobody ever wants to have to bury their mom or their dad.

Y'all are a remarkable family raised by a remarkable lady. God Bless you and you're in my prayers
Take care

My condolences to you and your family my friend. I was dreading the day would come when I would read about her passing. You have told some great stories here and it felt like I knew her although we'd never met.

Sorry to hear about your Mom.

So Sorry for your loss!

Hang in there Buddy, My prayers are with you.


May God rest your Mom's soul Jerry...you can tell, just by the number of comments, you have made many friends and followers, that care about you and yours.


I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I don't usually comment but enjoy reading about your dear family very much. I'm so sad to read of your mom's passing. What a blessed life she lived.

Sorry about your Mom. Prayers for you all.

Oh Jerry, I am so very sorry for your loss. Prayers for Peace for you all...

I am so sorry for your loss. No matter how much time we have with our parents, or how richly their lives may have been lived, we still want, and deserve, more. My deepest sympathies in the loss of someone so very special.

Checking back to tell you that you remain in my family's thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry...my condolences.

"Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her."

God bless you and your family, Jerry.

I'm sorry to hear that she's gone, and I know your dad will be missing her. My condolences on your loss, and my prayers for your family's peace.

Just dropping back in again to let you know that you and your family are being thought of....thinking of your dad especially.

Just wanted to let you know I've also been thinking of you and your dad. These are the hardest days when all is done and you settle back to what is now a different sort of life. Hope you're both doing well. Hugs and prayers for you.

My condolences go out to you and your family.
