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: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
