    Jeepers, NR...that bites. True sympathies. I assume you are heading home, no?

    No, not right away. There's nothing I can do right now. I'll probably be going back to scatter her ashes.

    Thanks. I'm doing my best to keep on keeping on.

    I understand, and I can appreciate the frustration of being so far away from that place that still, in some sense, remains as "home". Do take care.

    Wow Jonathan - my sympathies to you and your family.

    Add me to the list with Eric of people who understand the frustration and helplessness of being so far from "home" when something like this happens.

    Best wishes mate.

    You have my deepest sympathies Sir. Losing your mother, the parent that gave you life, like that must be awful. Hang in there!

    sorry to hear that nantucket. i one day want to do what you have done and move to another country, but what happened to you is exactly what keeps me rethinking it. Hopefully you can get through this and i think you should cry it out and pretty much emotionally collapse, because if there ever is a time where its needed, i think it would be now. hopefully everything goes as well as it can.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    True, I've never felt so far away. It is frustrating. My boss and coworkers have been very understanding and accommodating, and so have my friends.

    When I was home last September, my mother let me know that she enjoyed reading my posts on SF and asked if that was considered stalking. I told her it was more like having a fan club. Anyhow, she knew what a disreputable rogue I am.

    I think I speak for all of us when I say 'don't let that stop you'.

    Yes, it's tough, but it would be worse without modern electronic communications like email, chat, global roaming cell phones, etc.
