My mother passed away on Monday (April 23rd) and it's been the culmination of a long and difficult illness. Real life and family is obviously the most important thing right now, but I am so grateful for the support and kindness shown by everyone, especially the past few days. My game Gramma World was inspired by my mom's struggles with her health, but her desire to live a delightful, saucy and fun-filled life. I will miss her greatly and hope to continue some of her positive and loving ways in my own life.

I am so sorry, sir. I have yet to experience the death of a parent, so I can't speak from experience on that. Not that I haven't experienced loss.
Almost anything I say will seem shallow and void, but I am not alone here in considering you a friend. Know that we wish there was something we can do to ease the pain.
You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. I know you probably have a lot of responsibilities on your shoulders right now, but when you can, try to find some time to just sit and remember the good times and all that you appreciate of your time with her. And take time to grieve. If you don't allow yourself the healing process, it will turn into a load you will carry for a long time.
It's hard to consider yourself right now, but when you can, take some time for yourself.
If you need time away from here, we will understand, and we will be here when you return.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
My deepest condolences! Having lost my father just past December after rather short but heavy illness, I can totally imagine how you must feel right now. It's hard to get the head around the loss of a parent. So, take your time with everything.

Ooof. I can't think of anything to say, only remember, as bad as this feels, it is the way of things. Un-natural would be for you to go first. Take the time to grieve, heal and don't rush it. The blues aren't over until you play eight bars twelve whole times.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

Man, we are so sorry. Please accept our deepest condolences.
If you ever need someone fresh to talk to you, we are always here for you.

Hi! I'm Harry, and I am a hobby addict. I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Pacific Theater (oddly in both 28mm infantry and 3mm aircraft.)
Your mother seems like she was a vibrant and fun person on the pic. I can see where you got your humor from. Sadly we are getting into the age, where saying good bye to people we love happens more often than we care for. I trust you are in good hands with your family to mourn and say your good bye. I feel with you.

I lost my father to cancer years ago and the last few weeks that I had him around are when he was most alive to me. I'm sorry you've lost someone so special from your life. The loss hurts less over the years, but it never really goes away. Honor her memory by remembering the good that she brought to your life.
Vermin King: For Papercuts this year, I am just going to use things created since last Papercuts. Bessie for the model and Onager Longhauler for the kitbash. I was going to build 10 Downing St for a Bessie backdrop, but that ain't happening

Vermin King: I've decided I need to stop trying to get stuff back that I lost and get back to working on new stuff. Until work stuff gets caught up, I need to fight the rebuilding aspect.

Vermin King: It's been such a nightmare, I haven't been to OBS or your site yet. I just know they are gone

bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: Oo, oo! I just saw the Olli Bizer models loading!

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss

wyvern: VK: Now you also have the "joy" of the painfully slow shutdown and reboot every time (at least once a month) that Windows is made "better" by yet more unwanted clutter being downloaded to your system, plus a scatter of useless "desktop.ini" files.

Vermin King: After 3 1/2 hours of updating, I got this xxxxxxxx Win10 computer runnable. I'm really going to miss the ease of Win 7. Amazing all the stuff I did here that is just gone ... except for what I posted
