Musings from a 60-something midlife road tripper. Join the ride.
I am so sorry.I can't believe it.What a ball o'fire Bernie was!You are a lucky woman, and your siblings are lucky as well, to have had Bernie for your mother.God. I just can't believe it.I'm so sorry.
Julie, I am very sorry for your loss. Your mother's zest is so inspiring. I'm thinking of you and your family. Take care.
So sorry, Julie. Such sad news. Your Mom was special, I loved her wit and enthusiastic energy for life. Bernie will truly be missed by me.
I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your mom...take care and we'll be thinking of you...
Julie, what a terrible loss, and so soon after losing your dad. You must be reeling, and rightly so. Bernie seemed like a force to be reckoned with, and obviously a lot of who she was rubbed off on you, especially the love of water and words. I remember when she wanted to get the golden retriever, and you wished you wouldn't - but she did anyway, and what love and joy she showed for it during her posts. What will happen to her beloved dog?Thinking of you and hoping family and memories will help ease your loss.
My condolences to you and your family Julie. I had not visited Bernie's blog before, but enjoyed reading some of her back posts. A wonderful woman who will be missed.
Sharing your tears. Love, Anita
So very sorry to hear about the loss of your dear mother. She was a rare and precious jewel and will be sadly missed by so many. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Hugs.
Sorry Hun!! I know this has to be so hard for you.Gentle hugsSueAnn
So sorry to hear of your loss. Sending you prayers and hugs and warm thoughts of peace. xo
Julie, so sorry to read of your mom's passing.....my heart is breaking for you and your family. Sending you big hugs and please give my sympathy to your brothers. Bernie was a very special lady, she had so much energy and her post were fun to read, during our short friendship I learned so much from her . She e-mailed often and I loved every e-mail I received. I know you will miss her Julie so I encourage you to always remember the good times, the happy memories and always the love you both shared of the lake.....xo
Oh, Julie, I am sorry for your loss. Your mom sounds wonderful, a force of nature. Thinking of you and your family...Take care.
Sending healing prayers, Julie. She lives on in you and the boys. Please let me know when you feel like a glass of wine and a hug from this ol' pal.
Julie, I'm so sorry that you've lost your Mom. I've been to her blog (which I didn't know about) and can see that there's a resemblance in more ways than one. What a spirited woman! Like mother, like daughter. Wishing you peace, good memories and tears as you soak. xxoo Deborah
Ah, Julie. So, so sorry. She was a special lady.
Oh Julie,I am so so sorry,Bernie was indeed a grand Lady. Ahhh and what a lovely adventure she is on now. She will be missed.
My sincere condolences to you and your family. I didn't know your mother had a blog; I had to do some quick reading. Your mother was an inspiration; she never lost her interest and enthusiasm for new life experiences and the joy of living. I know you will all miss her, but she's left you such a legacy of joie de vivre to hold onto in your hearts.
I'm so very sorry for your loss, MJ. I will certainly honour your request for your son's post as your recommendation.Hugs to you and yours.
oh my...I am so sorry to read this. I read old-who-me? but never knew it was your mom. Please know that I am thinking of you and wishing you some peace and love...soak away...
Oh Julia, I'm so sorry to hear this news. Your mother lived an extraordinary life, especially for a woman born in the 1920's. It sounds like she was a real adventurer. I see now, from where your spirit comes.Take a good long soak, and stand still a while. She'll be with you always wherever you are.
Over from Hilary's to say how sorry I am for your loss and what a lovely touching post your son Ian wrote, thank you for sharing it
Leaving a hug for you and your family.
I'm so sorry. So sad. Sending you prayers and hugs.
I love Kahlil Gibran's writings, Julie. This is a particularly beautiful quote. I've been so busy of late, that I'm afraid to say I've missed a few of your posts and was completely unaware of the recent passing of your Mother. She sounds like such an incredibly inspiring, amazing woman and I can only imagine how painful this is for you. I don't recall ever having visited her blog and, if I had, I definitely had no idea she was your Mother. From the comments here, she was obviously well-loved by her Followers and will be sorely missed. My loving thoughts are with you and your family as you take the time to adjust to her absence.
Let me know what you think. Every word you write, I appreciate.
