As some members already know through PMs, my mum died in December, the reason why I haven't posted for a while. Although it happened over a month ago, I have the feeling I just got this terrible new a few days ago. It is the worse thing that could happen and I still don't really realize. I wanted that my first 2017 was a thought for my lost mum and I wanted to put a picture, the last one I tooked with my mobile phone (quality is not great as it is an enlargement) on this forum where I like to come. Thanks for tour understanding.

Dominique my dear dear friend, you have our deepest sympathies from all of your collecting pals here.

I must admit, I did think it a little odd we haven't seen you around much lately, but of course, this awful news explains everything!

Our thoughts are truly with you through these coming weeks and months as you somehow attempt to come to terms with your devastating loss and cine films right now, I'm sure will be the very last thing on your mind.

It is a pity I didn't have your details to hand earlier today as I was in Brussels earlier today with a few hours to kill, and it would have been superb to have met up with you for a drink and a chat as well as offering my sincerest condolences to you in person.

God bless Dominique, may time begin very very slowly,to heal your heavy heart at this sad time.
One day at a time Dom, that's all I can say mate. [Frown]

Dominique,

I'm so sorry that you've had to go through this loss. Our parents stand very large in our lives and it's tough to consider life in a world without them.

I too am sorry to hear about your loss Dominique.
It's nearly 2 years since my mum died and it's still sad,I never realised what it was like until it happened to me.
It sort of gets better but it takes a while,but even now it saddens me.
Mums are the best so the loss is huge.
Take care and I think that talking about it helps.
Regards from a fellow collector in New Zealand.

My condolences Dominique. As much as you feel the loss every day, take solace that your mum felt blessed to have such a wonderful son and was very proud of you. That's a bond that can't be broken even after her passing. I wish you the best.

Thank you for all these sweet comments. Whatever happens now, it will never be the same as before. I lost other beloved ones but it has nothing to do with the fact of loosing a mum. Andrew, I would have been happy to see you in Brussels. Maybe another time. "Devasting" is the right word...

When my Dad died I spent a lot of time debating the rights and wrongs of it. It was the early end of a good life and there is so much he would miss, but by the same token he was suffering and I believe he has finally found all happiness and peace.

Whether it is right or it is wrong, I came to understand that it simply IS, and I'd need to accept it for that reason.

-at the end of the day, it's the only choice we have.

Very sad Dom. Like Clinton my mum died 2 years ago and at the time it was a very low point in my life, but now I look back with some wonderful happy memories as I'm sure you will do in time.
God bless you and yours.

So sorry to hear this Dom. I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel.

It's funny isn't it our little community here, whilst many of us have never met each other we all feel such a common bond.

You take care my friend and remember the good times.

Very sorry Dominique. I lost my mother a few years ago and I still miss her. But over time remembering her has started to bring more smiles than sadness.

I still see her in my kids, brothers, niece and nephew. And for that matter when I look in the mirror. As my wife has reminded me many times, I have her eyes.

You're a fine man from what I can tell. Your mother did well.

Very sad and always a shock, even if you were expecting it as it was with my Mum. That was over 10 years ago and I still miss her.

Best wishes to you.
