I just read the sad news about Whoopi's mom. I knew Whoopi had had to leave the Sister Act show in August but didn't know why. I was so sorry to hear that, especially for Whoopi as I know she was really close to her. I can relate as my mother has had a stroke and I have to fly to England regularly to be with her. I'm sure Stacey, Tracey, Whoopifan and all the old crowd would send their condolences too.
