    Those of you who have access to my Facebook page know that I had to fly up to NYC to visit my mother, who has been in and out of the hospital for the past year. While I was getting ready to fly up, she died. I made the trip anyway and I'm glad that I did, as my dad really needed the support. Those who've commented about it on FB, thanks much for they kind words.

    Sorry to hear about that Ody. Let us know if you need anything.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I truly understand. You and your family have my prayers and sympathy. My father passed away on Good Friday and we had his memorial over the weekend.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. Mothers are particularly hard to lose.

    My deepest condolences, Ody. :(

    Sorry to hear that Odysseus. I lost a parent last year and know how tough it can be.
