[…] Sadly, my beloved mother passed away in late September of 2009. She was able to hold her personally signed copy of Loving Mr. Darcy, and even managed to read it and share it with the ladies at the retirement home where she lived. While generally keeping to my professional life here on the blog, I had to pay my respects to the best mother a girl could hope for: My Mom […]


Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful mother.

Love, Jana


Oh Sharon, I have just read this! Please accept my condolences and I know you will find comfort in your wonderful memories, although you must be so sad at this time.

A special, heartfelt thanks to everyone who has come forth with words of encouragement and sympathy. It has been a rough few days, and I know more to come for a long while, but the outpouring of support is astounding. It truly helps, more than you will ever know. Thank you SO much!

I am keeping busy. Mom would have wanted that. The tears hit me at strange moments, but that is good too. I am not that fond of crying. Who is? Puffy eyes, stuffy nose, blech! But it is cathartic and necessary. Luckily I have my hubby and kids right here.

What can I say? I am a bless woman. Love you all, Sharon


I am truly sorry for your loss, Sharon. I too feel that no one in our lives helps shape who we will become as much as our parents, particularly our mothers. I also feel that those of us that realize this are quite lucky. Your mother was truly lovely, as are you. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
