  1. Clicking Like seems so very wrong but I’m glad you’ve shared your sad news with your blogging friends.

    You and I have already spoken of your sad loss.
    And once again I send my condolences. You remain in my thoughts and prayers. I think of you often, Maureen.

    1. Dear Sue, As you know it took a long time for me to gain courage to write and share with blogging friends about our tragic loss. Thank you for your condolences, love and prayers.

  2. Oh my. I am so, so sorry. I know there are no words that can really bring comfort at a time like this, but please know that I will be thinking of you and your family and will keep you in my prayers. May Annie rest in peace and rise in glory.

    1. Dear Deb, thank you for your kind wishes and prayers for Annie and our family and friends.

  3. Maureen you honour your wonderful daughter Annie, by sharing this news of her sad passing. And we stand beside you in respect of this expression of love and honour.

    Maureen you also honour your daughter by working hard to live your best life. In times of loss someone needs to “Be the guiding light, a safe harbor, a beacon of hope, and a solid foundation for those around you.”
    You are a guiding light for us all Maureen Helen and I know you will certainly be that and more for all of your family and in particular, for Annie’s children.

    We are with you in our hearts and will always there if you need us. Blessing and love to you and your family Maureen xx
