    Guys,

    My Family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the kind thoughts and prayers.
    As some of you may know, my Mom had ALS and this past week she took a turn for the worse.

    My Mom passed away at 3:15am this morning. She fought and struggled to breath right through to the last minute, until her heart and lungs couldn’t handle it anymore.

    Although saddened by our loss, we are at ease knowing that she no longer has to suffer.

    We will be laying her to rest next Monday.

    Once again, I personally like to thank each and every one of you for the kind words, thoughts and prayers you offered up to us.

    Regards,

    Lou Moritz and Family

    I'm so sorry for your loss Lou. I lost both my folks 6 years ago within a few months of each other. Being an only child made it that much harder for me. The only thing I can say is that the grief will pass and be replaced by all the good memories you had of her.
    Form the way you've written about her on this Forum, it's obvious you were a good son. That's the greatest gift a mom can get and I know you made her proud.

    Here follows Bilbo's Last Song by J.R.R. Tolkien:

    Day is ended, dim my eyes,
    but journey long before me lies.
    Farewell, friends! I hear the call.
    The ship's beside the stony wall.
    Foam is white and waves are grey;
    beyond the sunset leads my way.
    Foam is salt, the wind is free;
    I hear the rising of the Sea.

    Farewell, friends! The sails are set,
    the wind is east, the moorings fret.
    Shadows long before me lie,
    beneath the ever-bending sky,
    but islands lie behind the Sun
    that I shall raise ere all is done;
    lands there are to west of West,
    where night is quiet and sleep is rest.

    Guided by the Lonely Star,
    beyond the utmost harbour-bar,
    I'll find the heavens fair and free,
    and beaches of the Starlit Sea.
    Ship, my ship! I seek the West,
    and fields and mountains ever blest.
    Farewell to Middle-earth at last.
    I see the Star above my mast!

    I feel for you. Lost mine in 1991. No words given can change the way you feel now. May your heart find peace through the days ahead.

    My sympathy, too. Passing on is a part of life cycle, but it is so hard on those who are close. Time makes it a bit easier, but the loss never goes away. And of course it won't. And it shouldn't. With your energy and positive outlook, you'll cope Lou, as I am trying myself.
