    That's so terrible and sad. I don't know how she's going to even be able to focus, but maybe she can use this to celebrate her mother's life. Sorry for her mom's death though.

    We shall see.

    Terrible news for Joannie. Among the top Canadian skaters, she seems to be the most down-to-earth.

    I just ran down to the computer to post when I heard. Poor Joannie. She's worked so hard for this & to lose her mom so suddenly and at such a young age......My heart just breaks for her.

    Poor Joannie. Her world must be upside down. How will she ever find the strength to concentrate and do what she's worked so hard for so many years to do. I just feel sick for her.

    This is so sad. She is brave to try to continue. I wish her all the best in whatever she decides to do in the end.

    Oh, no. This is just awful.

    I wish Joannie all the best and I hope that if she does indeed compete, she will give two performances to be proud of, regardless of the result. What a terrible thing to cope with during what should have been a wonderful time in her life.

    News Shocking News For Joannie....

    My heart goes out to Joannie Rochette this morning as we all learned the news that her mother passed away early this morning in Vancouver. Joannie plans to continue and skate for her mother's memory this week. It's going to be a tough call for Joannie. No matter, we all love her and support her what ever the outcome.
