I'm so sorry that Mao was not able to get back home in time before her mother passed. I'm sure it will stay with her for a long time. I do hope she will be comforted by the fact that so many people around the world love her and feel for her and wish her well.

Deepest condolences to Mao and her family.

I hope Mao was able to see her mother before she passed, but if she didn't, she must have seen her right before she left a few days ago. Very sorry for her and her family.

My heart breaks for Mao. Maybe the folks at the GP can hold a moment of silence for her. It would be nice if the competitors could put some of the ice thrown flowers on a memorial tribute to Mao and her mum. Off to cry...

How heart breaking. My father passed away of the very same disease at the age of 49--thankfully I was just 2 hours away and was able to get there before he was taken off of life support. I can't imagine how she must feel right now--if it was a similar situation, she probably knew that this would likely happen at some point. But one still wants the opportunity to say goodbye.

It does put things into perspective. The Grand Prix Finals are important in their own way. But simple sporting events are dwarfed by things like this. My deepest condolences to Mao, Mai, and their family and friends.
