Hello, My name is Danny...the middle son. It is with a heavy heart that I inform all of mom's blog friends that she is very ill. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a couple months ago, and is now receiving hospice care from my sisters Erin, Mary, Dawn, and myself.

Please say a prayer for her, or simply keep her in your thoughts.

Warmest regards,
Danny

  11. Thank you so much for letting us know. I met your wonderful mother a couple years ago. Drove to meet her since I live in Fullerton. We had a wonderful lunch at her son's restaurant and talked the afternoon away. I had begun to notice that she wasn't blogging much and was going to call her.

    Please tell her I send lots of love and prayers her way and if there is anything I can do, please let me know. 714/680-4866

  28. Danny, I am so so so very sorry to hear about your Mom. I just loved Mona and we had several shared 'life experiences' over the years. She was a wonderful, warm loving woman. Beautiful inside and out.

    I did a little post for her on my blog. I am sorry we weren't able to give her more support than we did-but, typical Mona, she would not want people to know an worry about her. She was one in a million. You have lost a precious soul and I am sorry.

  37. Dear Danny

    I am so very sorry to hear this incredibly hard news! Your Mum has been very much in my thoughts over the past several weeks and I kept checking here, to see if she had posted anything new. I sent a short email a while back, enquiring as to her well being.
    We all know how very, very hard this must be on all of you, her adoring and much loved family. It's a shock to all of us who came to know her through her blog.
    She had a heart of gold and a soul that transcended the world.
    With much love to you all!
    Des ♥️

  38. Dearest Danny and Mona's entire family. Myself and so many of us have fallen in love over the past nearly ten years of blogging, and getting to know her was an absolute joy. She touched the lives of us all, and shared her family life and happenings with us. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies as you mourn your sweet Mona. I loved her too, as a true friend and sister blogger. So far away, but do let me know if there is anything I can do for you. xox Sincerely, Diane Cayton Hakey.... Mona's friend.

  39. Dear Danny,
    Your mom was one of my first friends thru blogging and she was a woman I greatly admired. We kept up on fb but I hadn't heard from her in awhile. Your mom was a gem. I loved her wit, and her caring, loving heart.
    My deepest sympathies.

  41. Oh Danny, your mum will be so missed. I have followed her blog for some time and shared in her joy of the seasons, her little dogs, her decorations of the home, her love for the garden and her pretty house. She lived such a full life, surrounded by the love of her large family. She endured bravely the loss of her first husbands and two of her beloved children. I think your brother's death must have been one sorrow too many. None of us live forever but your mum deserved all the happiness you all brought to her. I shall miss, miss, miss her. xxx My condolences, from England.

We have all lost a very special person, even thise of us who never got tommeet her.

  52. Oh, my blog family and friends! I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Last time I checked, she hadn't posted in a good while, but I just figured she was taking break.
    I know you loved her so much! When I first found her blog, several years back---I went back to the beginning and felt I knew her and you all as friends!

    I know she will forever live as Mom to all of you. Her family made her life! God bless you all!
