  • Corona hits close to home.

    Corona virus killed my mother today. She was 89 years old, but in perfect health before contracting the virus.She never drank alcohol, used drugs, rarely even took an aspirin. She used holistic therapy if she needed to. Never over or under weight, exercised every day. Had no religion, no social life, no friends, married to my Father for 69 years. Couldn't and wouldn't cook, liked to read and ride her bike, mall walk and spend time with her little dogs. Every weekend her and Pop would go for a cruise in their '67 Cadillac Calias convertible that Pop restored.

    There will be no funeral, no coffin, no services. That's the way she wanted it. I believe V.A. will cremate her (yes, my mother wore combat boots). She rose to the rank of Corporal in the Army. She met Pop in Germany, they were both stationed there during The Great Berlin Airlift. She was a clerk and Pop was a Commo guy.

    Although she never prayed, I have to think if there is a better place, she's there now. She was an honest woman and never hurt anyone in her life. Pop seems to be taking it well, although he did say it was hard. That's about the most emotion you will get out of an old school guy like him. He turns 90 this month. He's overweight, smokes cigars, drank a lot in his youth and never exercises. I always figured he would go long before Mom did. I have to wonder how long he will go on without her. If he ended it on his own just out of loneliness, it wouldn't surprise me.

    I gotta tell you, this really fucking sucks.

          So sorry to hear of your loss. Your mother sounds like a poster child for how to take care of yourself. Life doesn't always make sense sometimes.

          Thoughts and prayers heading your way for you and your family.

            Condolences FPB. My neighbor is barely clinging to life after testing positive for COVID-19 a little over a week ago.

                      My condolences FatherPO,
                      Makes little sense that a woman of her caliber would lose her life this way.
                      Your Dad will need your help in the coming days, as you will need his.
                      Prayers for you both.

                              My condolences to you and your family. Sounds like your mom was quite the woman. Prayers your way from my family to yours. Stay strong for your Dad.
                              I will not apologize for being white, being straight or for loving this country.

                                    So sorry to hear that, Father Po.
                                    My Mom was killed in a traffic accident over 30 yrs. ago. I still miss her every day.
                                    Remember the blessings that your Mom brought to your life & the good times that you shared with her.
                                    She will live in your heart always.
                                    I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !
