Our Beautiful Mum...

I have given a lot of thinking time to this post, but as I don't seem to be able to arrange the words in the right order, I'm just typing and letting it flow..

Many of you will have read today's sad post on Mum/Moannie's Blog, for those who have not I am sorry to have to tell you that Mum passed away on Monday evening.

She is at peace and no longer suffering and for that my family and I are grateful. The loss is overwhelming.

Mums blog will remain online indefinitely and if anyone comments or asks a question we will be monitoring it and try our best to respond.

The View from this End is a fitting tribute to Mum's spirit, humour, courage and character and for that reason alone we shall keep it 'live'. Of course for the family it is also a special place where we very much feel she is there.

Thank you also for all the tributes, cards and gifts, we cannot thank you enough.

Much love Mum,
always,
              Saz x


I have been asked about flowers for Mum and of course she loved flowers and they are most welcome; however  she did mention that she wanted us to support Demelza Childrens' Hospices  in her name. It is an East Kent based charity which she supported and admired.

  5. I am so sorry. You must feel a terrible gap in your life now. (I know I did when I lost my mum and I miss her to this day.) We will all miss this friendship that we had on line with Moannie. This cyber friendship is unique but I felt I knew her through it. Yes, I will miss it.

    She was very beautiful and you are the spitting image of her.

  6. Saz, I am so sorry. I saw the title pop up in my blog feed and was almost too afraid to look, as I had a feeling it would be about this. Take one day at a time and get through this awful period of loss. It will get better, but meanwhile know your blogging friends are there for you. So, so sorry. x

  9. Sara, I consider myself privileged to know Moannie and you, darling, you.

    She was a rare soul, she had an energy that shone, as do you.

    May you find some peace with your memories of her. In time. Give yourself good time.

    I love you, as I loved your Mum, she was a rare support to me when I felt motherless - Perhaps I love your sweet soul much more, and can I offer you many hugs too? <3

  15. Dear Saz - I have been away from BlogLand for a while and I am very saddened to learn of the sad loss of one of our dearest friends, Moannie. She was a wonderful lady and I was privileged to know her and always thought of her with great affection. She was very kind to me and to everyone of her friends. I love the photo of her, Saz, absolutely beautiful. I am glad I was able to tell her from viewing previous photos that she was a very beautiful lady and she continued to be very beautiful on the inside right to the very end. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time - she will be greatly missed. Love and hugs ~ Eddie xx

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
