I want to thank everyone for your kind words of encouragement over the loss of my mom. She was 85 years young and lived a very full life. she was a strong christian woman, full of love and cared about everyone. she died in peace and expressed she was ready to go. I know you all would have loved her if you had had the chance to meet her. I have spent a lot of time on this forum and learned so much from all the generous people here willing to help out. I have come to feel like this is my second family and I can't tell you all how much it means to me to know that you care.
I still don't know what my itinerary is going to be at this point but, want you to know I'll be back as soon as possible.
till then, my love to all of you,

this is me and mom on her first ever motorcycle ride last year.

thank you for letting me share.

GW, I hope you're back soon. You've had some wonderful images and lots of kind words for the rest of us! It really doesn't matter how good a life a person has lead or how ready they are to go, it still hurts to lose them.

I've been away from the 'net for several days, so I only saw this now. I'm very sorry for your loss.

I've been away for a while and only now seeing this. I am truly sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. It is never easy to lose someone you love so much. Know that we will be here for you now and when you are ready to return. Wishing you a safe trip.

Take care, Patty
