Hi, My mother member name "Marycaldrich" (Mary C. Aldrich) passed away on Saturday, peacefully in her sleep. My sister "Strngmed", my brothers "Kman" & "Spookymonk" as well as myself and my daughter "Joey" would like to thank the editors for the TQID's, that was all she did really on Sploofus. She also bought my daughter "Joey's" platinum membership that recently ran out. The viewing is Weds. 09/26/2007 from 2:00pm - 9:00pm at the Edward Swanson & Son funeral home located at 30351 Dequindre Rd. in Madison Heights, Michigan 48071. The funeral is on Thursday at 11:00 am.

She enjoyed the questions of the day and did not get much further involved in Sploofus.

Please place our family in your prayers and if you want to stop in, we would welcome your company.

Mike you have my deepest sympathy. Losing a Mother is hard. May she rest in peace.


Mon, 24th Sep '07 12:34 AM

I'm sorry to hear this man.

Looks like she has taken quite a few quizzes in addition to the TQOTD.

And, her profile says this:
Rates other players quizzes an average: 9.00

I think that says something EXTREMELY special about your Mother.

Blessings and courage brother,

Please accept my deepest sympathy - I know how devastating it is to lose a mother. I must say, however, from just reading what you wrote about your mother, it appears that you have many wonderful memories that will hopefully sustain you in the days to come.

Dear Mike-
Peace to you and your family and friends at this time. It's something I find hitting closer and closer to home these days. Just found out an hour ago that a girl I went to college with just passed away last night. She married a college buddy of mine. We were all friends. Jeez.
I hope Sploofus brought all your family members some enjoyment.
Take care,

I wasn't sure of the responses that I would get by posting the announcement here. I am in awe of the wonderful and caring people who are drawn to Sploofus. It is all so surreal at this time. Weds/Thurs are going to be the hardest.

I know Sploofus gave my mother some joy. She had a stroke about 5 years ago and my sister cared for her in her home all the while. They laughed together a lot and spent many an hour together in doctor's offices.

Mom had a tough life, the last 05 years were here best, mostly due to my sisters generosity. My sister goes by "strngmed", when she was on Sploofus it was to take Joey's and my quizzes as support. My Mom apparently took quizzes too, I didn't know.

I spent some time yesterday putting together a photo montage using Adobe Premiere. Lot's of memories, can be overwhelming.

I am just amazed at all of your kind words and in awe of the support.

Again thank you and think of us Weds. as we have to be at the funeral home all day for the viewing and Thursday as we say our final goodbye.

It is hard to lose your mom, but especially one who was so much a part of your daily life. She will always be there in everything you do. You will hear her and sometimes even think you see her. A thousand days will never take away the emptiness, but the memories gradually overwhelm the sorrow. Keep her alive in spirit, cherish all that she has given you, and hold her gently in your heart. May you find the strength to handle tomorrow in a way that will celebrate her life. You have my deepest sympathies.

How absolutely wonderful that your family cared for your mother. It must have been extremely difficult to care for a stroke patient. I hope you all have the realization that you did absolutely the best you could for your mom. She was lucky to have you all!

Thanks - My sister took care of my Mom for the past 05 years. Her health was declining (she was only 63) but after the stroke, she had continuous medical difficulties. The visitation and funeral were very nice, we had a lot of family and friends to support us in this challenging time. Joey seems to be holding up well. Now is the time for the living and it is time to keep growing as a family and working together to not let so much time pass between celebrating our lives together.

Thank you all for your kind words and support.

Dear Mike:

Through your post, your mother has been able to leave a beautiful legacy with Sploofus. This is the nicest series of responses I have seen on this or any site. I'm sure your mother had a lot of good impact on family members and friends during her life. Now she has reached out to a whole world of other people. It is quite beautiful. Thank you for sharing the final chapter of her life with us.
