I see lots of questions about the missing DUzy thread...
Nance Gregg's mom died on Saturday, and I suspect this has completely deranged their household.

I'm sure Jeff is quite busy because of all this, and because he is a very supportive husband...

My condolences to both of them...


I'm all in favor of giving them space...

How about it?

5. Thanks so much for letting us know about this! I'm so sorry to hear about Nance's mom!
Of course it's understandable that there's no DUzy thread, to say the least!

Condolences to Nance and Jeff and their family. I just lost my own mother in September, I can truly empathize.

Thank you again for posting this,

I had no idea there was any connection between Jeff and Nancy.

This clueless one also sends my condolences to Jeff and Nancy.

62. JeffR gathers and posts the weekly funny things DUers say
It's called the DUzy awards. He told us on Friday that he would post it on Sunday and no one has heard from him since. Now we know why and it's awful.

28. Peggy, thank you
and thanks to those who responded.

Sadly, I never even got to meet my mother-in-law face-to-face, since I had to miss family reunions in South Carolina and Arizona due to work commitments.

I want to add here my own condolences to Nance and her sister (also a DUer). Their mother was an extraordinary person, a strong, independent woman from an America that generally didn't understand strong, independent women.

Eighteen months ago, my mom died mere days after being diagnosed with a rare and invariably fatal cancer. I hope Nance's mom and mine, wherever they are now, are having a laugh together. They've earned it.

JeffR had posted that he would do it Sunday, but he didn't.

Normally, he posts them Fridays...

That's what I meant by "missing."

47. Thank you so much, my dear friend, CalPeg ...
... and thanks to everyone who has posted here.

My mom's passing is not a time for mourning, but celebration. Having slipped into dementia years ago, she wound up being a prisoner of her own mind.

Now she is free - her mind again as sharp as it was when she raised three daughters on her own, independent in a time when such behaviour in a woman was unique and remarkable.

And now that she is returned to her full mental faculties in the afterlife, she no doubt wonders why her daughter spends so much time on this DU thingy, and is amazed that her erstwhile child has garnered so many incredible people as friends along the way.

Thanks to all of you - your posts are bookmarked in my soul for all eternity.

hard on the DUZY and it might be time for more of a team effort? Perhaps a discussion area or ? to help out?

On another note, my condolences to our favorite DU couple.

may the pain be over swiftly, and they remember the best of times. The loss of someone dear is always devastaing, and time passes slowly through the healing period, but it does pass, and life, with all of it's twists and turns goes on.
