Hi there MChaney! Welcome to MMC! We are all so happy to have you and Louanne's sister here with us as well. We are all so deeply saddened for your loss and our hearts go out to you and your family.... We here at MMC, all of us, have been so deeply touched by Louanne over the years since we have met her. She was a very kind, loving and thoughtful friend to all us here and we shall never forget her.

Louanne was in essence, a very large part of our Christmas spirt here at MMC, over the years, she has touched all of our lives with her love for Christmas, her faith and her passions and that will stay with us forever. We hope that you stay here likewise! Take Care and I hope to see you here in the forums....

There will truly never be another like her, and i just cannot believe she will not be there for the rest of my life. I am glad for her that she is reunited with her furbabies and so many others who have gone before her, but i cannot help feeling this hole in my life where her light once shone. It is going to be a very sad christmas for us this year. My sister has found a special way to honor louanne (i always spelled it with an e because she liked queen anne spelled with an e so much) at her wedding. She could not bear the thought of taking louanne off of her guest list, so she is reserving her chair for her, with a rose, and we know that she will be there with us in spirit. My spirits are so crushed this morning. I just want to talk with her so bad, and she is no longer there. I'm sorry to be such a downer this morning. Thank you all so much for all of the kind words i have been seeing about my dearest godmooma! And thanks for listening to a very downhearted niece this morning...i am planning on sticking around on here since it was so dear to louanne so i hope to talk to you all again soon!

(((hugs)))

When you find you need your Godmooma to chat with - swing by here - Louann's thoughts are all over these forums and threads and we will enjoy remembering and sharing with you. I am sure, in time, you will settle in here and find a special place to chat about Christmas, special occasions, and so much more.

Welcome to our merry community. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

Festive Regards,
Auntie M.

Welcome to the family! So sorry to hear of your and our loss of a dear family member, friend, mentor.... Always know that she is looking down on you and sending rays of sunshine, raindrops of joy, rainbows just because. Each snowflake is unique, just as Louanne was, but she was the liveliest snowflake on here. You are always in our thoughts, hearts and prayers.

Welcome to the MMC family, we are happy to have you. Your aunt was a cherished member here and we were blessed to "know" her.

Louanne Lives

Welcome and make yourself at home.
Louanne's spirit abounds on most of these pages either by welcoming a newcomer, giving hope and love to someone in need, saying a prayer for someone who needed God's love, encouraging a lost soul, sharing her faith by reminding us what Jesus would want us to do, letting off steam caused by some not so nice person through her work. Yes Louanne lives through this place we all call home.

God Bless you and yours

Rob

I'd like to add my voice to say welcome and that you will find this a warm place to share your thoughts of your dear godmother.
We are glad you've stopped by and hope to see you around as you can!
