My Mother passed away.

She'd long had health issues, ever since I was young (over 30 years now), and I was her primary caregiver. She is best described as spunky or feisty, even as she got older and less well.

She knew about SL, and I had mentioned my avatar and shown her a few pictures but had no interest in it herself. She did think my avatar was pretty. I put a few pictures of her in a set on my flickr:

She was something of a fashionista herself in her younger days and even until recently she still did what she could, she was very proud of her fingernails, which she did herself. I never did learn her secrets on that.

It's kind of hard, her dying just before my RL birthday (the 9th) and mother's day.

I miss her so.

I'm so sorry. I lost my Dad last July and I still half expect him to pick up the phone when I call my Mother. When we're young we think our parents are invincible, can't imagine life without them.

*hugs* It's hard, but it does get easier with time.

I hadn't seen this when you and I spoke yesterday and I am so, so, so, so, so infinitely sorry for your loss, and I truly understand how it feels. Please, consider yourself hugged so very very tight, and let me know if you need to talk. I adore you and I'm so sorry.

Dear CronoCloud, I have missed seeing you and am so very sorry to think this may be the reason why. What a painful loss, and how fortunate for both of you that you were close.
