Commodore Bok Soon Jones 1930-2011


My heart is aching and I am not sure what my world will look like without her out there I so appreciate all your thoughts and prayers they have meant so much to me.  She was #1, passionate about her family, followed by country and then the Elkhorn Yacht club where she spent so much time.  Her world was black and white...you were either right or wrong.  She was the original Yoda, there is no trying...only do or do not.  This photo is of her on the day she took off for that ultimate race. I do love that she left this life sailing.  That morning as HH and I were hiking around Crater Lake I got a text from her (yes my 81 yr old mother has an I-phone) asking me if I wanted a race tee shirt and I text her back asking if she wanted a Crater Lake tee shirt.  She didn't feel well and thought it was the meds she was on and collapsed.  In high drama that only she would appreciated the coast guard came out to "rescue" her...but she was having none of that...to leave this life and meet my dad for their long anticipated around the world sail...well they didn't realize that I just needed a little more time.  I won't be on the blog daily but it is a life line of sorts for me so as i wade through the details of mom's life I will check in with all of you...
