Memories and Memorials

Dear Bloggers,

Thank you all again and still for your comments and support with the passing of our mom. Memorial posts have so kindly been posted by Dianne, Lily, Daryl, Michelle (in addition to this link, Michelle has posted other dedications as well), Singing Bear, Sylvia, Paz, Harriet, Lisa, and Christine. If I've missed any, please let me know. The blog world has been a loving, dear one for me in these first treacherous weeks.

**I missed Gina's tribute previously. It's here.**

I don't have access to all the photos I'd like to right now, but this is what I've found and hastily scanned. A few shots of Bobbie in her younger days, with her older sister and brother, and the last with her niece. Enjoy.

We are planning a memorial service for September at Leaming's Run Gardens, one of her favorite spots.

Thank you so much, these are beautiful pictures Kitty!
& thanks too for all the links to the bloggers who wrote about Bobbie. I found them so comforting to read.
You have been so kind to Bobbie's blogging friends. I am sure Bobbie really loves that.

Thank you so much, Kitty, for sharing these wonderful pictures of your Mother and our dear friend, Bobbie! What a lovely woman she was and you can see the joy of living in her face. She is missed!

I wanted to also mention that if anyone is interested in donating in her honor, we've suggested the Nature Conservancy's Fund for the Gulf Coast Restoration. Thanks. kitty

Beautiful photos, Kitty. Thank you. I'm sure the memorial service will be lovely.

My tribute is here: http://thepagansphinx.blogspot.com/2010/06/farewell-to-dear-friend.html

Sorry but I don't know how to link it in comments. If you do, please feel free.

I think about Bobbie every day.

All the love,
Gina

Kitty said...

Thank you, Gina, I added your link in the post.

Daryl, I will let you know, thanks!

Thanks Kitty! I have been wondering about you. I hope you are doing well. I hope all this rich outpouring of love is filling your heart and helping you adjust to this new way of living without her physical presence nearby. I know she is always with you in spirit and in your heart. I am sure she would love the suggestion of the Nature Conservancy's fund to restore the gulf as her memorial!

I too think about Bobbie every day as I write a blog post about nature, as I watch the fireflies at night and as I watch Mother Nature's gifts every day.

I wanted to let you know that having Bobbie as your Mom was such a gift. My mother is still with us, but she is self-absorbed and plain old nasty and has been for ever. I remember the support Bobbie gave me when after helping my Mother through an illness after which my Mother told me that I was no longer 'her child' and I was crushed again.. Bobbie's gentle support was so appreciated...Michelle

Paz said...

Thanks for posting these photos. I very much enjoyed looking at them. I do miss Bobbie presence on the 'net. Lovely photos.

Peace,
Paz
