Condolences man, I feel for you. Though I haven't lost a parent yet, too many friends have passed too soon. I don't know how it is for you, but for me, something as innocent as an aroma or a simple turn of phrase can stir up all kinds of memories.

I used to rock climb a lot. It wasn't danger or thrill seeking that kept me on the cliff faces. Instead, I found that while clinging to a rock 40+ ft in the air, I didn't have time to stress about much more then where to put my hands or feet next. Everything else reduces to background noise. For me, brewing can be similar in that when I focus on the process, even a process I am comfortable with, each step becomes a critical path to the top. The things that stressed me are still there but so is the knowledge that I can create something awesome.

I'm sure that the epic IPA you've brewed will hit the mark, and I sincerely hope that you find peace along the way.

It sucks to lose a loved one.

You're always going to remember her on the day. Especially since it's already such a marked day. There's nothing wrong with remembering.

The thing I tell myself is, life is for the living. We do the dead no justice living any other way.

I really don't follow on what that's supposed to mean and I really don't care. All I'll say is if your'e lurking around here looking for opportunities to post smart-assed comments then this thread is probably not the place to do it. Some, including me, would consider it poor taste, to say the least, considering the OP lost his mother recently and has posted what should be considered a memorial thread here for his late mother. I really don't see how downplaying this man's emotions to me could make you feel better about yourself in any way, or why you would even go there, but just in case you're from another planet i'll go ahead and tell you that we all have feelings here on earth whether we like to admit it or not. Even us assholes.

I can assure you that 1: bottlebomber is from an another planet, 2: he is a kind person that means no harm, ever, and 3: cheezy knows that.

Now, there are things you don't know, and that's OK and normal of course, but rest assured that BB is not going to offend cheeze. I'm really sorry you saw it that way and I see how that happened and I think it's great that you stepped in the way you did, but it's all good here. Really. Kudo's to you for doing so.

For most people this would be true but cheezy is far from normal and I can almost assure you that it is stuff like that that he wants to see.

Who knows maybe I'm wrong though and am just being a heartless asshole.

Despite our regular disagreements, I still want to have a beer with you someday, cheesy.

Just let me open the bottle, pick the glass, and pour the beer.

Cheezy sorry to hear about your mom. The first year is the hardest. I lost both my parents when they were pretty young and within two years of each other. Nobody can take the pain away for you but try to focus on the good times, and memories. I promise you it does hurt less as time passes on. Best wishes my friend.

Very sorry to hear about your mom. It is always hard to loose the ones we love.

I don't know your usual interwebz demeanor but I for one can say that for someone who has been dealing with such personal loss, your lighthearted and often humorous posts are a joy to read.
