Lungdoc’s Mom Crosses deh Bridge

*Lolspeak off for a minute*
While we are on the topic of mothers–
A little over five years ago, at a Christmas ’08 family gathering, I mentioned to my Mom (then 85) that I had found an interesting Internet site with funny cat pictures and a collection of people who wrote messages to each other in their own language. I explained that the people lived all over the world but had their own community and seemed to care a lot about each other. Mom wasn’t a computer person, but as a teacher for many years, she knew a lot about people, and after I told her more about the site (ICHC as it was then), she urged me to take part in the community. I had never been one to participate in bulletin-boards and such, but her encouragement pushed me to “de-lurk” and become a Cheezpeep. For the fun I’ve had since then, as for so many other things, I am forever indebted to my mother.

Mom crossed the Bridge this afternoon at age 90, peacefully, after a mercifully brief illness. I’m sure she’s having fun with the kitties, since she won’t be troubled by cat-allergies any longer, nor by any of the other physical aggravations that her nine decades had inflicted.

Thanks, Mom.

    My sincere condolences to you and your family, and gratitude to the Creator of us all for giving us your wonderful mother who helped to shape so many lives, including your own.

    Our mothers: no matter if their lives were short or long, no matter if our relationship with them was stormy or sweet, no matter if their passing was sudden or unexpected, it makes no difference to our hearts, because we each only have One. And when they are gone from our presence, our hearts are broken.

  11. Lungdoc,

    Like you, i had never participated in any conversation sites before nor intended to. A friend on the east coast sent me a lol on farsbuk with a funny kitty and then later a skwirrlie attired as a pirate. Ah, the hook. So i followed the link to DOP to find all you lovely people. It was indeed a blessing during anguishing days. Praise be, with the laughter & love from amongst you, i was able go ride out the storms until i recovered my roofieness, lol. So i wanted you to know how your mom touched me: through your play, your stories, your poetic lolz, your shared wonder & delight with us, i have cackled hysterically to myself in the wee hours of the dark and snortled and awww’d so that every occurrence just thrashed pain to smithereenz! Your mom in encouraging you to be of this community lent me her goodness & warmth even when i was clueless to how much i needed it. Of course this applies to awl our nice friends through DOP and beyond. 🙂
    Thank you, Lungdoc, and Lungdoc’s mommeh, and awl our friends and furry and nawt sew furreh loves. –Roofie
