Baruch dayan ha'emet.

My beloved mother passed away in peace on Tues. night.  She was The Mommie right to the end.  A strong, virtuous, righteous woman.  Stubborn and tough, full of fight and independence.  My role model, my fighter (I never did win an argument with her.), the most wonderful mother in the world.

זכרונה לברכה - Zich-ro-nah li-v’ra-cha.   May her memory be a blessing.

Thank you all for your words of comfort.  It helps immeasurably!   I'll continue to tell Mommie stories because they are all delightful, even if I never won an argument with her.

I am so very sorry, Ruth.

No doubt your mother made you stronger for taking on the rest of the world. even if you could never best her!

Dear Ruth, so sorry I am late with these words.
I am sending you all my love. I feel like over the last few years I have almost met your amazing Mommy.
May Hashem console you among the mourners of Zion.

I'm so sorry to be late with my condolences. Best wishes and warm hugs to you and your family, I'm sure you will miss your mom very much. She sounds like someone whose passing just makes the world a little bit less colourful. And, by the way, my own mother is a Master of The Lecture and can wield The Silent Treatment like a Viking broadsword :-)) Mothers! The same the world over!

Good grief! Our moms could be twins! Mine did the silent treatment when we were kids. Much worse than yelling at us, and lectures? The Mommie was an expert at them!
