Default my mom died Christmas Eve

please post I know this looks like a car crash thread where you just slowly pass by and look but don't say anything.

not begging for pity just wanted to touch base with you my brothers and sisters brew beer.
it may also explain some erratic posts over the last year or so by me.

I think that I am celebrating it tonight whilst I brew an epic IPA, rather than the self destructive celebration that I might have,come Christmas Eve again.

or at least I hope so

just waiting for my work to chill so that I can pitch it and be done with the bitch.

cheers.

Sorry to hear that man. Don't do anything dumb, well dumber than normal.

And I don't know what you're talking about. Erratic posts???




You aren't ****ing with us, are you?

Sorry about your mother and I hope your IPA comes out fantastic. You're still a psycho as far as I'm concerned.

Aw cheezy, let it go. My mom died in mexico a few years ago. I made the emergency flight down there and found her stretched out in a stinky block building in San Filepe. I hired a boat and spread her ashes in the sea of cortez. It happens and it sucks and I think about her all the time. Meh, that's just how it is.

Everyone in the world will have this happen.

Dude, my Mom passed last December 12.. She went in to the hospital just before Thanksgiving diagnosed initially with pneumonia. Turned out arthritis had somehow gotten into her lungs and the rest was pretty much history. Sudden and unexpected, she had just turned 70, but thank the Almighty she did not suffer.

As I'm sure you've figured out by now there's really nothing for it, you just take it day by day until time numbs the grief. It's coming back fresh now with the change of seasons and the onset of the holidays, for me as well, but you just have to believe she's in a better place now making arrangements for your eventual arrival. That's really all we have for comfort.

My thoughts are with you Cheezy, thanks for having the nuts to post this.. When I read it I felt as if you were speaking directly to me and it really struck deep with many of my feelings of late. Hang in there man, it sucks for sure but death is just another part of life if you really think about it.

Anything I can do or any way I can help just LMK.

Here's to our Moms...

I'm sorry about your mom. I still have both my parents, but for how long? My dad dodged a bullet with his heart this year. My mom had a patch of melanoma cut off her back. I worry a lot more about my kids than my parents, but death is coming and there's just no stopping it. And if there was, I would be talking about that in one of your other threads. As a premium member you have the right to delete the thread, but why not just let it be?
