In Loving Memory


It is with deep sadness that we write today as a family to tell you of the passing of Moannie on Monday 8th October 2012.

We would like you all to know that your messages and gifts have been, throughout her long illness, a genuine source of comfort to her and to us all. She would often talk about her 'blogging', the friends she had made and the wonderful stories you told. She thought of you as her extended family and one of the most upsetting effects of her illness was the fact she could no longer 'talk' to you all from her beloved, if temperamental computer 'Paco'.

Although this will be the last posting on her blog, as a tribute to Mum and you, her followers, 'The View From This End' will remain live so that we can all continue to spend time with her.

Mum, you touched so many lives. We hope you realise just how much.

You are loved and missed.

  2. Here is a place where I and many others will come and visit you often. To hear your voice.

    I still cannot believe you've gone, but then for me you haven't gone at all. You are always with me.

    Love always Mumma and I can hear you saying, with a slight smile...
    'I love you more!'

  6. I remember when she put of this recent photo of herself. It did capture her spirit and she was pleased with it. I have a number of friends who passed through my blogging life and I like when their blogs remain a memorial to their memory. Miss you much, Moannie!

  11. Very sorry to read this post. I always valued Moannies's thoughtful comments and enjoyed her stories about a childhood that I could not begin to imagine.

  12. I am so sorry for your loss - and ours! Although we never met in person, I was hoping to meet her (and you) some day when I came to England. She will be greatly missed here, but not as much as you will miss her. She was a true lady. My condolences to JP and your brother as well.

  13. I want to thank you for leaving Moannie's blog here for us to come visit. It will be a comfort as we read her words of humor and wisdom. My mom also left my dad's blog up and I often go back and read his mispelled words and laugh at his jokes. I know you will find comfort in coming back and visiting with her thoughts again and again.

    There are no words that can be said to relinquish the pain from her loss. Just know that there are many, many of us out here in blog land who care about you and your family and will be praying for you to find peace.

    I will miss Moannie terribly. Hugs.

  23. I knew of your Mum mostly from my partner, Hilary (Smitten Image). Seems she was one of the good'uns -- those who leave the world a better place for having passed by.

    I'm sorry for those who mourn her. I'll raise a glass in praise of her life.

  28. Even though I knew this day would come I hoped it wouldn't. Your beautiful mom/moannie was one of the first people to comment when I started blogging a few years ago and I was lucky enough to meet her (and JP and Milou) twice...and
    she was as funny and kind and interesting in real life as her words showed her to be. I am glad she is no longer in pain, I am so very sorry for your loss, and she will be missed by so many, who will be glad that her blog will still be here for us to visit. Prayers and thoughts are with you all x

  35. My one regret in life, and I try to have none, is that I never met the spirit that is Moannie. She was full of energy and life and I loved her even before I had the pleasure of meeting ma soeur, Sara - I didn't even realise that you were family, such are the secrets of Blogland...

    I love you with my heart and soul. Your Mother's thoughts and words were very comforting to me, thank you for them, ma chere. Moannie has left a pure legacy with us here in Blogland, a mark to live up to. Such heart had she.

    You who survive, live, breathe, try to live up to her spirit and essence of love. You will miss her. Let no day go unmarked. With much love and longing <3

  44. Such dreadful news. Moannie was a great reader, a brilliant writer and a wonderful friend. I loved reading her stories - always fascinating, always so well done, whether it was her childhood, or adulthood or the beautiful heartwarming stories about her life with JP. I wish we had more of those stories to remember her by - it was also a terrible shame when her blog posts went missing after she had trouble with her domain name.

    Saz - my condolences to you, your brother and JP. I hope you find consolation in hundred of happy memories, and dozens of well-intentioned strangers telling you that they wish they'd known Moannie a fraction as well as you did.

  48. I have written to you privately, Sara, so...

    Even though I knew this was coming, I am still heartbroken. Moannie was one of my favorite writers on the internet, always a stop I looked forward to making on my rounds. She entertained me highly through many hours of reading pleasure. I will sincerely miss her, and my fervent Christian hope is that we meet someday in a place where no pain can spoil the conversation.

  51. Dear Saz - I left a message on your blog but also I am posting my comment here. 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

  52. I seldom commented on your mother's blog, but I always read whatever she wrote. A wonderful voice has been silenced. She was an amazing storyteller.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you remember your mother as a beautiful woman of great wit and intelligence. She had a great deal of courage in the way she lived her life and dealt with her illness. Her spirit will not be forgotten. She is a role model for us her readers. God bless you all at this time.

  77. I would like to echo Saz's sentiments. It is so uplifting to return here and see the outpouring of love and affection for my mother. The pain is still so severe and I miss her terribly. We are so proud of the affect she had on you all, as she did on us. Coming back to her blog feels like she's with us still and I keep expecting to see a new piece of writing. I used to be quite cynical about how genuine the comments were but you have all shown me that you can really touch people's hearts and minds and build real friendships without ever meeting. Thank you so much.

  78. Tonight I am thinking of you, Moannie. Molly Annie....and wishing I had known you for real....wishing I had found your blog before I did....to have read it before you deleted it accidentally. I have made many friends in this blog world since your departure, but none of them have the compassion and honesty and wisdom that you had....and I truly miss you still. How could someone who I only read on a blog for a year have such an impact on my life? You did. I hope there is an afterlife...and I hope that I will get to sit and talk to you for hours and hours and have your wonderful stories told to me....hugs, dear sweet lady.

  82. Hey there Saz....and wherever you are, Moannie. I was at The Smitten Image blog tonight and it's her 6th anniversary blogging. That led me to tell her that I, also, have been blogging for 6 years this November, but for the first 4 years, no one but family visited my blog. Then I was looking at The Blog of the Month or Day, whichever it was Blogger was doing then, and saw your blog, Moannie, and I came here and fell in love with you...and your words and your humor and your wisdom and kindness.....and that you then came and visited my blog and were so encouraging to me. I miss you so much still. I know, as Saz does, that you are still here in spirit....so I just want you to know how very much you impacted lives with your sweetness and kind words! Hugs!

  93. Dear ReadersJp,

    It is sad news I have to tell you. Moannie's husband JP, of 53+ years, died on 5th March 2014, peacefully at home.

    Although this came unexpectedly and was obviously a shock to the three of us, we have seen through the month and celebrated his life at his recent funeral.

    They are together again.

    Saz, John, Rachele x



    ReplyDelete
  94. Oh Saz, John and Rachele,

    I am SO sorry to hear this sad news. I loved Moannie's stories about JP and the rest of you. My heart aches for you and the losses you've endured. I hope you can all take comfort in knowing they continue their saga together once again.

    May I suggest to anyone who doesn't know Moannie's tales of JP to just scroll up to the top of her blog and enter JP into the search window. All of her blog posts which mention him will show up for your reading pleasure. (don't miss the one about the bed)

    Hugs to you and yours, Saz. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    ReplyDelete
  95. HI Saz, just realised that JP passed away on March 5 - I had no idea. My very sincere condolences. I always hoped our families would meet, because I often told Moannie that she and my Mum would have got along like a house on fire. I've never forgotten that Moannie referred to me as "Sir Knight". So instead of looking for one star in the wide sky, I now need to look for two, very close together - Moannie and JP. Very warm regards. David McMahon (Authorblog).

  96. I'm so truly sorry for your loss:(
    When I used to blog every day for 4 years your Mum's blog was the one I always read religiously with my first morning mug of tea... we often exchanged messages via her and my blog. I loved her funny stories and she seemed to understand me and always had very wise and very kind words.
    It is the greatest tribute keeping her Blog here, this wonderful lady living on in the virtual world for all friends and newcomers to read her wonderful words.
    I haven't written anything on my Blog (not even logged on) for 4 years but I logged on today and had to write this.
    God Bless you and your family. x x x

  97. Thanks for your recent visit, Saz. It was lovely to see you again. Of course your Mum's beautiful face will remain on my sidebar for as long as I'm blogging. She was a huge part of what made it a fun endeavor for me. She's with me in blogging spirit at all times.
