Missing Our Moms

Today my wife's mother passed away. Sarah Jean Currier was a beautiful woman, and she will be missed by many.

I sit here in Seattle, shaking my head, while I think about losing my own mom three months ago.

Janeanne is now there with her family in Kansas. I know the grief she is going through. It is painfully fresh in memory.

All I can think at this point is to be thankful for having had such wonderful moms. We were both pretty lucky, I think.

Condolences to both of you. I am thinking of my mom more than ever this year because June will mark 10 years since she died. It seems to me it's a loss you don't ever quite get over, but if you've ever seen "the circle of grief," it doesn't really "close" anyway - the circle just goes to a new point to start afresh. Take time to truly grieve.
