Mom

I've been away from the computer for a few days because my Mom died last Thursday (my post that day had been written earlier and scheduled for the 19th).  I flew back to my hometown to be with family and attend the funeral and returned back to Calgary a couple of hours ago.  Even though she lived a very long life and had been ill for a some time it is still very difficult.  I want to take this moment to thank my friends who sent messages, cards and flowers.  Your moral support means a lot to me.  I'll be back to knitting and blogging soon.

My sincere sympathy to you and your family. My husband and I lost his mom a year ago this coming Friday. We are still very emotional some days. I hope you have many happy memories to comfort you these next few months.
