Condolences to Paul Hooson

In a comment on another thread, reader and regular commenter Paul Hooson mentioned that his mother passed away on Monday. I do not wish to embarrass Mr. Hooson, especially in his time of grief, but I do feel that we should all extend appropriate sympathy and wishes for solace and peace to Paul and his family.

One of the things I greatly appreciate about the Blogosphere, is that you get to know people from a great range of places and perspectives. And so, I consider Paul a friiend whose loss matters to me. I also recall the many kind words I received when my father passed away last year; it was a comfort to me then, and I hope it may be a comfort to Paul now.

The times being what they are, I must remind everyone that this thread is meant for condolences and sympathy. If you cannot manage those emotions, there are plenty of other threads where you can leave comments. But it would be a good thing, for those who are so inclined to wish Paul and his family their sincere good wishes and sympathy.

I cannot imagine your loss: Both my parents are still alive - but I saw how it hurt them when their parents died, and it is a sad thing to go through. Know that they are only going on an extended vacation, so to speak, and that you will see them again. In the now, you have my condolences and prayers. It never goes away, but it will get better.

Thank you, DJ and all my friends over here at Wizbang. I deeply appreciate your very kind words. You're all extremely nice persons. It's so good to have friends who care like this.

Politics never really should matter very much in the end. It's not a big thing to me which party one may belong to, or which church, or which clubs or lodges, or which sports teams one supports. In the end we are all the children of God and want the very best for our nation, community and family.

Losing both my parents within just the last three months has been extremely tough for me. Feeling really sad and empty right now, the kind words extended here have done wonders for my deeply wounded spirits.

God bless you all. And love your family always. You'll be really sad when they're gone. I should know.
