My Momma Passed Away.........

......Yesterday, after a brief battle with cancer. It was peaceful, she had her Beloved since 1941 by her side.......*sigh*, I thought that I could write a proper homage to a Woman who has lived along and good life......putting up with, and Loving the Sar'Major, (my Dad), instilling all of the good things that made her children Good People.........

But I can't. I'm not capable of explaining what a wonderful, loving Woman Barbara PinkHam was.....graduated college at about sixteen, worked with a top secret clearance at the Pentagon pre and during WWII, met a brash Marine Sergeant at a street dance in 1941.....and married him....worried about him as she had 5 of his children.....

Nursed him back to health, both physically and mentally, over the course of the War and later.....She Loved him, and accepted Him with the stoicism of her Culture....

He received the Medals, and the newspaper write ups......Momma raised the kids, and Loved her Man. She chose well.....

The Sar'Major Loved her with all his heart, a heart that was healed of the Hell of Peleliu, by Her.....Patient, kind, loving.....and able to toss any of her progeny across the room in a well executed Jiu Jitsu move.....

I, and my Siblings mourn her.....I played the Amerind flute to her last night, and we celebrate a Life well Lived.


Prayers for her Soul...yup, but She doesn't need them.....Prayers for my Sire and his wellness would be appreciated.......He has always been surprised that he lived longer than 50.......G-d bless my Little Brother, Wollf the Younger, for his Love and attentiveness, and his Wife.....Good People, and Boots on the Ground.

Thanks for your Prayers and concern.....My Momma taught me to be stoic....maybe it's an Amerind thing....I'm done with the tears...it's time to Dance in Memoriam of a Fine Lady.

She's with Grandfather, her Mother, my Brother Michael and my Daughter Heather now....oh my goodness, what a "Hell of a group in Heaven"......

Save me a place, Momma, and keep those others under control.
I Love You.
Wollf ......Malsom N'qoss

The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away (Psalm 90:10).

My condolences on your loss Wollf. While I can't be there physically, know that my thoughts and prayers go with you and your family.

My condolences to you and your family, Wollf. I will especially remember your father in my daily prayers. It will not be easy for him to let go of such a fine lady.
