Goodbye Mom

My mother, Pauline, passed away on Mothers Day. It was peaceful, and she was surrounded by family. She was the youngest 83 year-old you’d ever want to meet. I don’t have the time or energy to write a long, thoughtful post, but I did want to let you know what was going on, and how much I appreciate all the kind words, and expressions of support. It means more than you’ll ever know. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. She was a great woman, and we all loved her very much. She will be missed.

My sincerest condolences. I hope you and your family are ok. As someone who lost my mother in my early 20s, I can say that the greatest gift you have given her is your happiness and I'm sure she must have left this world a very proud mama to have such a successful and good humoured son. Please take care.

I am not a big blog follower (except for Foodwishes it is so inspiring) and I never write post, but you have been on my heart. I kept checking back to see if you had returned.

Donovan J said...

Hi Chef John. I have been watching your videos for a while and I really enjoy them. I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I understand how you feel. God's word has some comforting promises about the future hope we have. Revelation 21:4 says: "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." We won't have to worry about any of the problems mankind faces today. Even death will be eliminated and we will be able to see our dead loved ones again. We can be confident that this will happen because God cannot and will not lie. I hope this helps you and your family and friends cope with your loss.

etherdog said...

Dear Chef John,
We are very sorry for the loss of your mother. You mean so much to us, not only in cooking, but in the lessons of life,
When my mother died, when she had all of her children were around her, she could finally let go.
It is hard to grasp at that loss, and only time can give you some distance between the event and who you now are. Take the time to be reflective on what your mother means, now, to you, Be the person you want to be.
With greatest love,
John.

cms99 said...

Chef John,
So sorry for your loss. My mom passed away in January and I think I learned how to cook via some sort of "osmosis" since she didn't have a lot of tolerance for sharing her kitchen! We all learn so much from our mothers, directly or indirectly.

I know it's scanth comfort right now, but cooking is a conduit for love and good intentions. The fact you've been able to reach and inspire people all around the world with your channel, says a lot about the family you come from and the people who have raised and nurtured you.

We owe your mother a debt of gratitude for that. And with every recipe of yours we recreate, she will be remembered. Thank you.

Donovan J said...

Hi Chef John,

I would like to clarify a statement I made in an earlier post. I am only 19 years old and I don't understand exactly how it feels to lose a mom. However, I know how I've felt when those I love have died. I sympathize with the feelings you may be experiencing. What has helped me is what I shared in my earlier post.

kh said...

In our jounery to be a proffesional chef, we really live on our childhood culinally memory, literally tastes of all dishes Mom made for us. Good bye is always bitter sweet, but please take enough of your time to get yourself back, Chef John. We all love you.

Chuck Hamman said...

So very sad to hear. Your mom must have been a remarkable woman to raise a character like you. You have thousands (probably hundreds of thousands) of fans who have grown to love you over the years. If your mom was anything like you, then we've grown to love her too.

We're all here for you Chef John. While we don't know you personally, we feel like we do. Thanks for sharing. I hope she passed peacefully and painlessly.

Is there anything we can do to help? Donate to her favorite cause? Send an edible arrangement? Etc?

Dear Chef John,

This must be a trying time for you and your family. I can't imagine what you must be going through. I went through a similar experience late last year and all I can offer is my condolences. Try to be strong through this trying time.

I think I can speak for everyone that visits your site/videos when I say that you have brought joy to all of us in teaching us how to cook in inventive and exciting ways. Personally, your videos challenge me to try new things and recipes in my daily life and I have to give you a huge thank you for that. I truly believe that is something your mom would be immensely proud of. Let us not morn her death but celebrate her life, I am sure she was and always will be an incredible woman.

Sincerely,


Geoff

stanv said...

My condolences to you, and to your family, Chef John.

I get so much from FoodWishes, for which I am grateful. When love and food come together in a shared meal, it is magical. I suspect this was a common experience for you growing up, as evidenced by your joy and passion in sharing your knowledge and skills with us.

Having shared my kitchen with you as often as I have, I feel like I know you, though of course it has been one-way communication. Regardless, please take time; we'll browse the older posts until the day (and it will come) you get the itch to make a new video, and add to your Mum's legacy.

My thoughts are with you.



Westwingpotus said...

I'm so sorry your mom is no longer here in body, but she will surely live on in your memories. you're a great teacher with a with a wonderful sense of humor. I bet part of that came from her.

Hey Chef, When we lost our mom my brother, who lives in Syd Australia, planted a tree in his backyard. He now has long conversations with it, or should I say "her"? :)
