  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.

    Here is the link to my blog:

  29. I am so sorry to hear about Mona. She was one of the first followers of my blog and commissioned a few of my mosaic pieces for her home. Sending hugs to you and your family.

  31. I am so sorry! Many prayers for your family.

  32. I am so sorry to read this. I enjoyed your Mum's blog and the connection with her.

  33. I am so sorry to read this. I enjoyed your Mum's blog and the connection with her.

  35. We are all so very sorry for your family's loss. Though all of you know this, she had a wonderful life and loved all of you so much. She is with our Lord & your sister now.

  36. A loss to the blogging world. You know what makes me smile when I think of her? Scrolling through the pictures on the side of this blog . She was so in love with her family and friends. What a gift.

    Thinking of you and we will always "wspr sweetly of Mona...."

  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.

  40. I met your wonderful mom through blogging. I lost an aunt to pancreatic cancer last August. I understand.....My deepest sympathies to you and your family.

  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.

  42. Danny, I'm so sorry and my heart breaks for you and your family. I will miss dear Mona but please know she gave so much to her blog friends and I will miss her smile as well as her friendship. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  43. Thank you Danny for letting us know about your sweet mom. She was loved by so many of her blogging friends. We loved hearing her stories about her children, her DH, her puppies and her home. She will be missed. My thought and prayers are with all of you at this time. Sending you all ((((hugs))))).

  44. oh no! i am devastated! i guess i didn't realize how bad she was. i feel so sad for all of you. mona was one of a kind and a very special lady. i am so so sad.

  45. I only found out moments ago of her passing.
    I am a long time blogging friend but haven't been visiting blogs since Feb as my husband passed away on July 11th of brain cancer.
    Please know my prayers are with all of you.

  46. I'm so sorry to read this. My thoughts are with You.

  48. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Mona and I visited much through the years. She was special to me but sadly I had drifted away.

    I am the one who sent her the tiny porcelain dog for her fairy garden.

    Her love and kindness touched so many. I am deeply sorry for your loss. Mona will always be with you.

  49. Adding my condolences to you and your family and on the loss of your much beloved mother, Danny. Like so many others have said, Mona, was such a special woman who loved her family and we fellow bloggers loved her too. I have been away and was saddened to see your post about her diagnosis and then read of her passing so soon afterwards. We have all lost a very special person, even thise of us who never got tommeet her.

  50. Thank you all for your kind words. My mother was an amazing woman. My heart is broken.
    Much love and gratitude❤️

    1. Mary Alice,
      Not sure if you read this, hope you do.
      I was thinking of your mom this morning and felt overcome with missing her.
      Oh my, she was such a dear . . . as you very well know . . .
      She must be thinking of me, it would be SO HER!

      Caring about your broken heart and sending you love and hugs.
      Love ~

  51. Hello Maryalice, our hearts are grieving as well. Your mother was a wonderful woman and I will miss her too.

  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!

  53. Dear Maryalice

    I think of your Mum almost daily and I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person. How many million times harder it must be for you and your siblings and families. She will never be forgotten!

    With love and gentle hugs

  55. Dear Danny, I was a blog friend of your mother's. I always admired her and her love of life and her love of her children in spite of the issues that life sent her way. She always had such an upbeat spirit and I enjoyed reading her posts. Thank you so very much for thinking to let all of us know about her illness and passing. I am sure your heart is broken. With warm and loving thoughts, Rachel

  56. Just clicked on your mom's blog today. I am very sorry for your loss. Your mother seemed like a beautiful person.

  57. You know what Danny, I searched for an old blog of mine which was about loosing my aunt as I wanted to send it to my cousin's daughter who is in Texas. I was just going through the comments and suddenly realised that I had not visited your mom's blog, or rather did not hear from her for some time.
    And when I came here, I see this.
    Don't you worry things will turn out the right way .......... I know how you are feeling now...... I lost someone who was very close to me to cancer 18 years ago and they say time heals............

  58. The blog I mentioned was this :

  59. Dear Mona, I know you're not hear but you ran across my heart this evening and I just wanted to come over to your blog. You've been a big part of my blogging time and I miss you. Rest in peace, sweet one.

    I thought Id share a quote with you from U.G. Krishnamurti that pertains to your blog, please dont take offense. You assume that there is such a thing as truth, you assume that there is such a thing as reality (ultimate or otherwise) – it is that assumption that is creating the problem, the suffering for you.

  76. I share this testimony with partners who are suffering in their relationship because there is a lasting solution. My husband left me and two children for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong only for my children, but I could not cope with the pain that tormented my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed help, so I did a little research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr. Ediomo, a spellcaster, can help bring lovers back. I contacted her and she made a special prayer and spell for me. To my surprise, after 2 days my husband returned home. So we were reunited, and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.
