For my mother

Yours for Good Fermentables is a blog about beer and wine and spirits, all enjoyable accompaniments to a good life. I don't usually post on personal matters.

But, today, I will.

My mother, Genovaite Cizauskas, has died. Known affectionately as "Gene," she lived a long, rich, and global adventure-filled life.

Later in life, Gene loved her animals: her two faithful companions, Emma Dog (a rescue) and Ethel Mae (a boisterous beagle). She was never reticent to tell friends and strangers all about those two and their escapades.

So, in my mother's honor, I ask you to consider making a contribution to your local animal shelter or rescue association, or to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). There is a donation page there, in Gene's memory.

Thank you.

Yours for good fermentables,
Thomas Cizauskas
P.S. Gene was known to enjoy the occasional tipple. She could mix a mean martini.


  1. Tom, I am sorry to hear of your loss. Our prayers go out for your mom, as well as you and your entire family.

    Requiescat in pace.

  2. Tom, very sorry to hear about your mother.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss, Tom.
