The Epilogue

As was expected, Mum passed away late last week. Fortunately, Marouda, my father, my sister and myself were able to be there for the final moments of her passing.

I’ve been doing lots of the paperwork since then, and trying to keep as busy as possible to avoid the cracks showing, though the grief and rage bubbles just under the surface. Just got to keep it in check.

I’d like to thank everyone who posted kind thoughts and messages to the previous post. I haven’t read them yet. I tried, but it was too difficult – and I’ve got to keep those emotions under control while there’s work still to be done! I would like to especially thank Orez and Pyro, who have been here, helping myself and Marouda with distractions and also helping us to help my dad.


I’ve been doing a little bit of painting since finishing the Lions, and managed to finally do the finishing off on a small squad of Deathwatch (Irony!) that I started a decade or so ago, putting the final touches literally minutes ago. I’ll try to get them photographed and have a “normal” post up in the next day or two.

  1. I’m very sorry to hear this, I will say that she’s resting high in the Heavens and looking down at all of you, smiling and feeling proud of the ones left behind. The grief is over for her as she has found peace, it’s not over for you though as only time and time alone will heal the pain you now feel.
    Stay strong for each other, my best thoughts to you and your loved ones.


  2. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Though it may have been expected, that doesn’t make it suck any less. Make sure to take some time off for yourself when you need to. And do whatever what works for you and makes you feel good — or as good as possible, considering.


  3. I find it amazing what this hobby can do to help get through the worst life will throw. Loss, pain, annoyances, stress…sitting down at the painting table for an hour or so in an evening can really help a lot to put that at ease. Even better is the people you meet and support you will find from people around the world.

    I read through your other post and it was truly inspiring and heart breaking at the same time. You are a stronger man than me sir.

    I hope things turn around for you soon and you find a new normal in your life soon.
