Default Rest In Peace MOM

I haven't been around much the last while for a variety of reasons, one important one being the diminishing health of my mother.


Thought an easy way to let all my cruisemates friends know of her passing was to post here. If you would care to read more about her:

Kuki,

Betty and I send our prayers and condolences to you and your family. I know it's been a hard road these last few years but you have done a wonderful job making your Mom's days as good as they could be. You are a good son.

Blessings to your Mom and your family,
Mike and Betty

Kuki....

Your mom sounds like a VERY interesting lady. I now see where you get your courage.

But a twin sister???? There's a female version of a KukiMoose out there???

Why has this been a secret for so long?

Kuki and Geela, I'm sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I know you did so much for her in recent years to make sure she had health issues addressed, and the finest care. Rest assured you did your best, and now she is at peace.
Condolences to your whole family, from James and I in Nova Scotia.

Thanks to all for the thoughts, prayers and support. Those who've lost loved ones, understand, even when they are older, frail and ill, it still feels really bad.


But, we keep putting one foot in front of the other to carry on.

Dear Kuki, I'm sorry to hear of your loss. May your dear mother's memory be a blessing to you.


You're right, we just try to keep going-one foot in front of the other-even though our heart is broken.
