    skateluvr, what dreadful news. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your mom.

    My husband had a brainstem stroke in 1995 and was in the ICU for 13 days; he is still alive & doing fine. With God, all things are possible.

    Thank you for your sincere prayers. I love GS because I learn so much, even though I forget half. My mother was taken off life support this morning. My brother, of hawaii will come. People act like she is not a terrible loss at 91. I have little support. The worst thing that could happen has, and I am alone, disabled and no one has offered any real help. My mother was not as she should have been and I am exhausted. She passed between the Bdays of my father and her oldest son, who dide suddenly in hospital at age 65. My tiny family is splintered. I feel the sun mocks me for it shouldn't shine. I love her with all my heart, and I am so afraid. I never dream, and I begged the God for years to see a soul from heaven or purgatory. My father died in 2007. She was exhausted by the stress on us of PCAs who have caused upheaval. I don't know if we can have a normal service as this is holy week. I have few freinds, all older church people. May God forgive my lack of faith. I'm unable to stay alone in her little house, but must go daily as my 19 year old cat neds to be fed. My brother says put her down to be practical. How much loss can one heart take.

    Forgive me, one minute I am functioning, the next unable to move. Tell everyone you love them, for today might be their last. I love you guys for communicating with me, and always teaching me from my bed or chair about teh sport/art that has consoled me over and over. If there is a beautiful pair or dance team -I watch the top ones only now, please list them. Maybe a new thread, consolation through art.

    [I] love you all. Thank you. I need all the prayer/good thoughts I can get. Her sweater reduced me to tears. Life for some is cake, for others it is calvary. My plans for holy week to pray a lot seem dashed. I just want my mother. She went so fast/in front of me. I would have felt inconsolable If I found her unconscious. I thank God/the universe for this mercy. Today is the feast of the annunciation. I know we are not in control here. GS provides joy, laughter,knowledge, great people discussing the only sport. Thank God for internet and youtube and the sincere folk I have met. I feel I know you all, Doris, Chris Olympia. Bless you.

    Skateluvr, surely someone who passes during Holy Week must have special escort from the Almighty. I know what you mean about crying over her sweater; I've done that. Everything that she used has a bit of her memory inside it. I don't know if this is consolation to you at the moment, but I believe that she still knows you and loves you.

    I will follow Doris's inspired idea and send you some music that might help console you.

    The Sanctus from Durufle's Requiem:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpBMCT-H59Q

    "How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place" from Brahms' German Requiem:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZcxpl30NOw

    The Agnus Dei from Faure's Requiem:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMlr4XKNcNo


    Something lively, as an act of defiance against adversity:

    Danse/Tarantelle Syrienne by Debussy:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wayVf7OIOz0

    Something I always find uplifting and sunlit:

    "The Birth of Venus" from Respighi's Three Botticelli Pictures (sorry about the ad):
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgO3JugGMm0

    In my Father’s house, there are many dwelling places. If there were not, I would have told you. For I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will return again, and then I will take you to myself, so that where I am, you also may be.
