Just to let people know:

After a couple of months of increasingly severe illness, my mother passed away last night at about midnight. I will miss her very much. If I don't contact people for a bit, it's not that I'm ignoring you on purpose (or it might be - you'll never know for sure!). Hopefully the year will improve from here.

Thank you to all those people who knew and sent their best wishes and prayers, and provided support both physical and mental. I really appreciate it. Hope to speak to you soon.

I'm sorry to hear about your Mother.

I only met her a couple times, at your parties and your sister's wedding but she always struck me as a very warm and friendly person.

If you need a pit-stop between Sheffield and the south, feel free to drop in anytime.

I second all of this. Do take care, and lean on your friends as much as you need to.
