Hello. kitefliers.

Just a short note to say my mom passed away last night from complications
of pneumonia.
She had been struggling with alzheimers for the last twelve years and was eighty-seven
years old.
Have planned a little tribute with a couple of Revs which I'll post for you when it stops raining.

Jim, I am sorry to hear about your loss!

Fly some kites and think about your mom in the good times to help you through what you have to go through now.

Condolences Jim.
A close friend of mines mom is suffering from Altzheimers. extemely debilitating and rough on all who are close.
As Alden said, keep thinking of the fond memories and the good times gone by.

I'm Soooo Sorry to hear this, Jim. :( My Deepest Sympathy. I've lost two family members to Alzheimer's and it's a horrible disease to witness. Perhaps the pneumonia was a blessing in disguise.

So sorry for your loss Jim. 87 years is a long life, even 75 good years is a blessing. Your mom is at peace today, God bless.

Jim, my sincerest condolences,

Always look at the positive aspects and remember the good times she had. Today she is in a better place, where Alzheimers cannot affect her anymore. She's in a better place

Sad news, Jim...
Keep the faith in these tough times and remember the special moments.
Know that when you're looking up to fly, she'll be smiling down at you.
