The call…

I just received the call that we knew was coming for two weeks. My mom passed away at 5:25 p.m. Montana time today. Maryam and I are driving there this weekend.

So many of my coworkers have been dropping into my office and wishing me kind things and sharing stories about their experiences with their loved ones passing away.

I knew the call would unleash more emotion on my behalf. Even with two weeks of preparation it still hits hard. Gotta call my brothers now. Thank you for all of your kind wishes and story sharing during this time. It really means a lot and changed my view forever about what this community means.

  7. Mr. Scoble,
    Nothing I can type can really add to what’s already been typed. Having lost my dad Nov. 5 after a long on-and-off fight against cancer, I can somewhat understand what you are going through (though, no one truly can).

    You and your entire family have my full condolences and well-wishes.
    Mike

  9. Robert my prayers continue to be with you and your family. May the bond between you have grown even closer as a result of this loss. Life has a way of keeping us grounded as to what really matters at the end of each day.

    Remember somone once said. . .”God is in the pause” so take a moment of reflection each day to listen what is being said today.

  11. A poem for you — one which has helped many move from the pain of death back to the joy of life:

    Grieve Not

    Grieve not, nor keep my memory fresh

    With flowers laid daily on my grave,

    I am not there, ‘Tis but the earthly shell,

    My soul has gone to Him, who gave.

    Hold me not forever dead,

    for Death Is but a moment’s passing,

    then the Light, And into G-d’s kind hands,

    I rest Forever, from my earthly flight.

    But if on a summer’s day, you hear a singing bird,

    Or see a rose pearled with morning dew,

    I bid you, think of me with smiling lips,

    For such were mine, each day of Life, with you.

  13. I was away on a business trip and only learned of this today, Robert. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
       I know what you are going through and as so many above have said, the loss of a parent hurts like heck. You may begin noticing, however, that although your Mom has passed from this physical world, that connection you have with her, which you felt while you worked in Washington state, remains almost identical. That is the love she has for you, and it will always be there.
