Hi Kevin,
I am very sorry. I am a long-time reader of your blog. Perhaps to give you a smile, my mother is English so "mum" means alot to me- my father is American. My mum has always told me that because I am part American and part "British" that I am "rude and obnoxious and yet disgusted by my own behavior" :) My mum is 64 and I often wonder each day if it will be my last with her so although I cannot understand I can somewhat empathize and again I am sorry.

Kevin, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family - it is never easy to lose a loved one - and I treasure every moment that I have to talk to mom and dad - even thought they are far away. Take care; Rich DelCore

My thoughts are with you and your family, also. My mum is my home. I can't imagine what I would do without my home.

While I've neither met nor heard of your mother before, I can confidently say that Jean Roberts must have been a very special lady, as her son is both a positive force on this planet and true mentor to many. Her legacy does not only extend to you, but also the millions of people you have touched, challenged and inspired.

Take care.

Losing a loved one is never easy, but it's what makes like worth living, knowing that we only have loved ones for a short while. Hopefully your time with your mom was sweet and her passing was kind. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this Holiday season.

Merry Christmas and God Bless.

Kevin,

Jean Roberts must have been amazing to have nurtured someone like you. I'm sure she was very proud of you and your family and I hope you are comforted by your memories together.

Have a toast and a smile to her from your readers who know personally the great work she put into the ones she loved!
