Delay of Game: Reality Intrudes

I’ve been missing the past week or so and probably will be for another week or two. My 90 year old mother came down with pneumonia last week and passed away yesterday. I haven’t been in much of a mood for gaming or discussing gaming and it will probably take me a couple of weeks to get back in the swing of things.

RIP Ruth Marie Stukey (22 June 1920 – 2 September 2010). She was a wonderful person, a great mother, and she had 90 good years. Here she is on her 90th birthday last June (my sister took the picture).

Randall, sincerest condolences from me, @theprincesswife on your Mother's passing. Hope you can find some peace in all this.

Thank you, Michael. I'm just happy she did not have some long illness. She would have hated that and always seemed to fear it.

@Everyone — Thanks for all the kind thoughts and words.

I'm recovering. However, I think we will miss this Sunday's game as well. I just don't think I'll be up to it.

I've not long started reading your blog, but please accept my condolences to your and your family.

In 2005, I lost my 4 year old daughter, and that one event completely removed my desire to roleplay… It's only recently that that desire has started to return, so completely understand where you're coming from.

Hang in there,

-Dan
