I am SOOOOOO sorry to hear of your mother's death.
She was a shining light in my universe. We saw each other only about once a year until you/she built the house on Fire Island and your had a baby....she was passionate about you and her grandchild and your happiness was in great part her fight to prolong and enjoy her life to the fullest. She was the a huge personality hidden in a small body. I loved her. I will miss her. She was the beginning and instigator of a great life changing adventure for me in 2003. I had never met anyone with such a huge zest for life and adventure and who was always ready for the next adventure! She had so much talent and so much generosity of heart and spirit.
I know you have visited us @ Hacienda Mosaico in Puerto Vallarta. I don't know if you remember. I have watched your television shows. Your mother was so pound of you for so many things and on so many levels, but your child might have been one of the greatest joys (aside from you, of course) ever. I am so happy she had time to enjoy the gift of the grandchild you gave her.
There are not enough words to describe my loss let alone how much you must feel the loss. She was always so positive and upbeat and never afraid of speaking her mind. I admired that. I could not really keep up with her intelligence and ability to speak of anything or any person with her accurate, spot on observations.
Tereze was a loyal and beloved friend to many. I remain blessed to have been among one of sooooo many. We were all blessed to have known her and share in her overflowing essence.
Sending my sympathy and love and best wishes for all good things in the future.
