    Joanne and family,
    so sorry for your loss. I remember when we were kids and you and your family lived just up the street from us. Your dad was always a kind gentle man.
    My mother passed also on Christmas Eve she was 81.
    They will be missed but are in a much better place. May God’s love and comfort be with you. Kathy (Luther) Mallonee

    an interesting oibtrvaeson. but the etymology and the evolution of the word “lose” doesn’t seem much convincing, it has to be social from the beginning, or in a philosophical language,the sociality of win/lose constructs the extension of passion from its partiality to a diversity of feelings which is definitely more than economical
