Thank You, Everyone

I have to say, I'm so very, very thankful for all of the kind words and comments about my Mother's passing. While it has not been an easy time for me, your words and thoughts brought me a great deal of comfort. It really means a lot that so many people wrote. I am deeply grateful .

I'm glad I had the opportunity to write about my mother here, to share some of her story, and to introduce her, in a way, to all the readers of Kyle's B&B. There's so much I left out, but then, how can you capture someone completely in just a few paragraphs? Perhaps I'll continue to post about her every now & then, to fill in more of the details about her background, (like the fact that she was a Broadway queen, attending hundreds of historic plays during the golden age of Broadway. She also saved all the Playbills from those times, and what an amazing roster of performances she saw, such as Marlon Brando in "Streetcar", Robert Redford in "Barefoot in the Park", and many, many more).

But for now, I just have to say thank you so much, again. And here's one more photo, of my Mother and myself in Ireland, atop Ross Castle in Killarney.

Hi Greg,

I wanted to comment, but am not sure what to say. I lost my mom on March 1st. It was hard as she too was sick and I actually traveled back home to take care of her.

I can say that her memory lingers on and I catch myself thinking about her a lot. Just remember it is ok to cry and to always hold her close to your heart.

My mother died four year ago so I share your pain.

Hope you do not take this light hearted comment in the wrong way, but I could not resist commenting on the picture of you and your mother in Ireland. I am not sure but it looks like you all were in a contest for "Best Hair by a mother and son."

I love you strip. Keep on plugging.

Your words are so heartfelt. It's great that you are so open to share with all of us.

Now on the other hand, you look soooo cute in this pic! How could any mother not be crazy about you!!!
