Hi Terri. Sincere condolences to you and your family on your loss. I know I used to read her posts because she always had something to say that was worth taking notice of. Please stay involved here and encourage your daughter to as well. It is nice to have "Pentax families".

So sorry to hear of your loss, Terri. Your mother was an integral part of this community, we will miss her.

You, your daughters, and other family are always welcome here. We all look forward to seeing your work, and having discussions about photography.

Warm regards,
Racer

Thank you Terri, for letting us all know. I exchanged a few private messages with your mother and knew she was ill. Her contribution here was upbeat and positive. She will be missed. You and the other people she left have my prayers and and sincerest sympathy.

Sorry to hear this news, just recently she was mentioning the adjustments she has had to make to keep making images. As she said in her signature, she has been watching our back for many years. It is so consideraste that you have come here to give th forum members this news. Many times we notice a regular active member no longer making posts and dropping out of the forums. We are just left wondering what has happened and there is no closure.

Please continue to be active here and ask the very patient knowledgable members anything you need to know.

My sincerest condolences to you and your family. I'm sure that you will find many ways in which to remember your mom but I think that having her family continue to use her camera gear and enjoying her passion for photography will be a really fitting way to honour her memory and remembering the good times you all had together.

I'm so sorry for your loss. We will miss your mom here, but nothing like the loss you feel.

My thoughts and prayers are going your direction.

This is very sad news indeed. And completely un-expected.

My condolences.

I can certainly relate to the camera part. I still have my dad's camera, although it hasn't had a roll of film in it for at least 30 years.

Take care.
