My dear mother, Natalie, died today.
She was not a religious woman, certainly not a Roman Catholic, but loved Mozart, a love she faithfully passed on to me.
I think she would approve of this as an appropriate way to start to say good-bye.

It’s it for now. Thanks,
My condolences, Mudge.
Mudge, you seem of late to have had far more then your share of unhappy events. It is my hope that you and yours will be receiving all the best in future, having had enough pain as is.
In times of loss it isn’t Mozart’s “Requiem”, but
Mozart’s “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” I listen to…
The scientifically impossible I do right away
The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer
I’m sorry about your loss *hugs*
@lkhult, @bug: thanks so much.
@ClapSo: What a great musical choice, thanks!
Even though I only know you through your comments on Len’s blog, please accept my condolences on your loss. May you be comforted by warm and happy memories of time spent and love shared with your mother.
All the best,
James, thanks so much for the kind sentiments.
I’m really very sorry to read about your loss.
Take care of yourself,
James, thank you so much for your kind words.
[…] So, on a beautiful, late summer afternoon, supported by family and some old friends, we buried her. […]
