Oh goodness, I'm so very sorry to hear you've lost your mum. That poem brought tears to my eyes before I had even read your last line. What a beautiful farewell. I know that mere words can never come close to the depth of emotion we feel in these situations but I just wanted to extend my very deepest condolences to you and all your family and tell you thoughts of peace are with you from the other side of the world.


Oh no, Margie, my friend...
my heart is all with you during this tough time.
I've kept you both in my thoughts these last few days, and always will.
Please accept my most sincere condoleances & deepest sympathy.
Sending you all more love than I could ever send, I hope you can feel it. xoxoxo


Margie, I'm with you in spirit. What a beautiful poem to mark this event. Even though it's such a lovely poem it's made me shed tears too. I'm sure your loving family will be strong and nurturing for each other through this sad time.
We're sending you oodles of cuddles from across the pond. Lots of love to you and your family.

My condolences to you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I wish i could give you a big hug to take away your pain.
There are no words that can really make you feel better but i hope that you know that i, and i am sure many other people, send their love x


Darling Margie - words seem so useless at times like these - but I wanted you to know that I am thinking of you and am so sorry for your loss.

With love and the warmest of hugs



Oh no, I'm so sorry for your loss. That's a beautiful poem to remember your mother by. Lots of warm hugs,
xx Joyce


I'm so sorry, Margie. Wishing you, in abundance, all the peace and strength you need.


Oh Margie, I guess it's an infinite and so painful void/gap (vide/manque) for you. And for all your family, as your mom was a very special mom and a very special grandmother.
It won't help you, but I think of you all the time (at home, cooking, cleaning or hanging up the washing, on the way to school or at the supermarket ...). I wish all our thoughts and love all over the world could bring you some comfort, but I'm not sure any comfort or any soothing (apaisant) words exist ...
We have sun today and I look at the sky ...
Much much love to you, dear friend.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your mom. I really, really loved seeing the posted pictures of her. She looked very content, surrounded by people who clearly loved and appreciated her. Best wishes to you and your family.


Oh no! I'm so sorry. It looks like you all had a great holiday together though. I'm glad for that.

Margie, I've followed your blog for a short while but always felt the warmth your family generated by your ability to write your Lovely posts which seemed to have family as a central part. May you receive comfort from those with you in person as well as those of us who only post comments. Warm hugs from San Diego CA :0) Becki

Margie, I am thinking of you often, sending love and support, and a breath of uplifting ocean air.
