My God, Sissy, that's eerie. There's the scrim . . . as if it were an instinct.

Tears come to my eyes as I read yours and Susan's tributes to the brave, sweet and kind devoted woman who was my beloved wife and your adoring mother.

Those of us that are members of that infamous club - "People Who Have Suffered the Loss of Their Mothers" - all learn to deal with that loss over time, each in our own way.

Your remembrance of your dear mother does her honor. As long as she is in your heart, she will, in some small way, always be alive.

Meanwhile, we are gearing up to remember my mother, who passed from this Vale o' Tears nineteen years ago this spring. Every year, on the first night of Chanukah, we celebrate with the traditional potato latkes - and the decidedly untraditional Chinese take-out. It's our own peculiar memorial observance...and it's tasty, too!

My mother left me 32 years ago and there has not been one day that I have not to some degree, be it great or small, missed that woman on every level of my being. She was my best friend, often my only companion, the woman who didn't have to open her beauty shop until 9 a.m. but who, nonetheless, got up at 4 a.m. to drive me to the skating rink so that I could practice undisturbed before school. She was marvelously intelligent, an astonishing cook, one of the most beautiful women I have ever beheld, as well as one of the funniest.

RIP to all our departed mothers. We all needed them longer than we were able to have them.

Elisson - what is it with Jewish people and Chinese takeout? I keep asking my boss but he's Observant and hasn't a clue?

This tribute is beautiful. My thoughts are with you Sissy and Goomp.

As you do every year, you bring your mother's memory alive. Lovely lovely post Sissy.

Thank you, darlings, for your kind thoughts.

A loving tribute is truly a gift that can be taken out year after year, to be burnished again and warming us in its reflective glow.

well now i am teary eyed...

rest in peace...


Reading your blog always makes me cherish my days.

My own Mother turned 79 in November and I am going to print out this post to give to her because she doesn't have a computer and she never will.

Sharing your memories of your Mother is a lovely tribute.

Thank you, darling. Warm thoughts to your own mother.
