Mom lost her battle with cancer. Instead of sadness I rejoice in her life. She was a woman of great faith with a wonderful sense of humor. No matter how dark the times were, she could make us all laugh.

thanks mom, you were the best

She loved to paint, no pictures, walls ceilings, antique furniture (much to my chagrin) anything. I was afraid to fall asleep as I may wake up painted. Painted her 200 year old antique china cabinet because she was tired of looking at the wood LOL.

I have visions now that she is in heaven painting God's antiques. I can hear him ... no no don't paint my Chippendale high boy

One time she painted her car. No kidding. She had this white car and said it showed the dirt so she hand painted it this grungy blue color with a brush.   She said there, it looks much better don't you think ...

Ah Dan I am sure I got the faint whiff of fresh paint on the wind when I stepped out the door this morning looks like she has started already. If you start seeing pink forget-me-nots and other flowers of strange and wonderful hues you will know that the Guid Man has taken drastic action to protect his antiques. Thinking of you and yours

Condolences, Dan. She sounds like someone who kept you on your toes! Perhaps you can suggest a memorial site in lieu of flowers, like the anti grafitti project in your town. They love to get paint donations.

Well the one time I was in HS, she bent out her front bumper on the 65 Pontiac trying to back up and caught it on a fire hydrant. I said mom that bumper is sticking out we have to get it fixed, she said for sure. So she drives down across the RR tracks, goes to one of the old RR telegraph poles, lines up and bam .. runs into the pole. The bumper goes back in place. She said since I lost your dad , I have to figure out how to fix stuff myself

forgot to tell you, one day she painted her washer and dryer and our claw foot tub bright yellow. You see with mom color didn't matter. God forbid any paint should remain in the can ... I came home from HS and said what is this, she goes doesn't it look great. I said mom that is wall paint what do you think is going to happen when water is put in the tub for a bath.   I get Oh is there a difference in paint? I guess I will have to repaint them. I am waiting for my grass to turn white then I will know God gave her a project

may have told you before, one time I dyed her little white poodle dog green for St. Pats day. I used green food coloring ... boy was pissed, then she said, it is kinda pretty however. The woman would cover the earth if God lets her. She must have been an expressionist in a past life. Loved to paint.   I bought her a watetcolor set once for xmas. I figured it would be easier then her painting 200 year old antiques. she did make some cool grandma moses type of art

One time about a year after my dad was killed, we all wanted to go swimming really bad. So mom took us and our friends to the swimming hole that everyone went to. Now my mom was only in her early 40's and was a beautiful woman. Me I don't swim, I fish. so while my brother and sister and friends were swimming I was below the hole fly fishing (lots of great brook trout there). Anyway suddenly I see this women's swim top come floating down in the current. I cast my fly and reeled it in. Started to walk back up and from the bushes I hear. Dan Dan find my top, it broke. Dang I haven't worn this swimsuit since my honeymoon Dang . I tossed it over the bushes to her.

My friends my mom would have loved you all. And please she would be delighted that you are laughing at her antics. sometimes I think she did stuff just to make us laugh. It was important to her. I was told in no uncertain terms that no grief, just love and laughter because that is what she was all about.

My grandpa and I had massive vegetable gardens. My grandma loved flowers. Grandpa hated them because you can't eat them but he always made a beautiful flower garden for her. Well the apple didn't fall far from the tree. My mom's backyard vegetable garden went like this. A row of tomatoes, a row of flowers, a row of lettuce a row of flowers. I would say what kind of vegetable garden is that, she would say a pretty one. Then I would respond well at least ya didn't paint it

I knew she had to be extra special to turn out such a kind gentle-man for a son. What a wonderful childhood yours must of been. My mom loved flowers a lot, too. My sis, long-ago Mudcatter "bet" wrote about mom, her passing and flowers which Jeri turned into a song:

Song for My Mom

and, here's a note about IvanB performing it for us a few years ago: Clickety.

Enjoy and my condolences to all.

Dan... "I don't why I can't cry ... Just lost and empty .. I don't get it"

I think it's simple. You also said, "I miss you so but like you said no tears. We just remember I will see you again"

I think you are already seeing her again and I am sure she appreciates it. I know I certainly do because when you tell us these small snippets about her she comes to life in my mind and heart. Thank you, Dan, for sharing. And don't be concerned about the way you grieve. If tears flow, even when she said they shouldn't, it's okay. I am sure she would understand.
