My Mother's Stroke (a limerick for the Serious Limerick workshop)

In these bodies we really are, "stuck".,

it's difficult getting through all the muck !

Mom just died from a stroke,

and was comfortably broke;

so it seems death's a stroke of "good luck"!

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
This is my submission to the "serious limmerick" workshop. Thanx for your considerations, and condolences in advance. She was my Mother, best-friend, taxi, confidant , and, she will sorely, be well as continually loved! Sincerely, Doc Maverick.
Editing stage: 


Our thoughts are with you,
another wave in the eternal perfection,
as we take our stations in that other world of Spirit.
My thoughts to you all there,
Yours Ian

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

To you doc.
I'm sorry to hear that you've lost such a good friend as your mom.
Your words are very expressive.
