I always wondered why death has to bring the family together in one place.

One has to go for several to come...

So please forgive me if I take a week-long hiatus from blogland because my mom made way for the whole family to come together. Bear with me for a while.

There is one thing I realized, though. No matter how much you prepared yourself for a death of a loved one, it still doesn't cover you in full armor. Pain of loss always finds a weak spot and hits you.

Bear with me for a while, my friends.


  1. First of all, I offer you my condolences on losing a family member. I too, understand that we never really can be completely prepared to let go. I also wanted to tell you that I really think the name of your blog, pen, paper and a mouse is very original and witty. I wish I had thought of it. Best wishes,

  2. My condolences to you and your family. Losing a parent is especially difficult (I know because both mine have died). A loss is a loss, even if you expect it.

  3. my condolences to you and the rest of your family, god bless!

  4. my deepest condolences to your family. May God gives you all the strength that you need.

  5. So sorry for your loss. Will be praying for you and your family!
