    This afternoon,

    my Mom passed on and joined Big Ed Holohan in heaven. They will be together forever, laughing and loving each other, as they did in life. I'm sure that when he saw her this afternoon he said, "Hey, what took you so long?" He was that way. :-)

    She passed peacefully in her sleep. She wasn't in pain. I was with my brother and our wives and some of our kids this afternoon when we got the word. We were laughing and having a few beers. I think she planned it to be that way. We took out the photographs and told stories. We remembered so much. We'll keep doing that. We'll remember, and we'll smile.

    If your parents are still alive, please call them soon and tell them you love them. Make memories.

    Retired and loving it.

    Hard to express adequately the feelings. Our conversations about our moms has been more comforting than you may know and not a day has gone by that I haven't felt supported by what you've said about and done for your mom. We will all be truly blessed if we are loved so well by our children.

    Love to all,

    Dave, Lois & family

    Thanks, guys

    We celebrate life and she had a wonderful one. And we have lots of faith so it's all good. We're remembering and telling all sorts of stories tonight and it was a fine summer's day on Long Island. A good day to move on.

    She always made me laugh, and I did the same for her. We were best friends.

    It's all good. Thanks.

    Retired and loving it.

    Very sorry Dan...

    She must have been one heck of a woman.

    You and yours are in our thoughts and prayers.

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    Ah, the memories! I'm sure you and your family will keep them alive. Sorry you had to loose her, but she lives on in the Holohan clan.

    My Mom moved on 5 years ago, with my Dad and 5 of her 6 six kids at the bedside. It was an experience I'll never forget. Even when she was dying she was still teaching us. And the memories and stories we continue to trade back and forth keeps her alive for us.
