|The proverbial "Dark Cloud"|
By far the hardest hit for me is that I have lost my Mother. I was fortunate enough to see her several times this year, and even before the sudden, unexpected end. She was getting into her golden years, but believe me, nobody expected this to happen...
I miss you Mom, but as I know you said to me many times - Life goes on.
Once I have finished my time to mourn and recover, I will be back. Until then, keep an eye on the zeds!
