Good Morning....Iīm still so very sad...and at the moment it feels as if it will never end....still I am determined to enjoy this very day....the sun is shining beautifully...and I donīt think itīs far-fetched to think that my dear friend Louann helped with this!!!!

Louann...I will take You around my town today...we were living far from each other...but now You are closer than ever...just one thought away...maybe You can check on my grandpa up in heaven.... I miss and love You

Morning mmc
Hope today can be a better one slightly,
My heart is still heavy as am sure so ur own
I no i have not been on in a while but was always gonna come back,
But once i heard the tara news i had to come on to be with friends
that knew her so we can mourn and express our feeling together.

Was taking to a person who knew her on fb, a couple of days.she had a stomach bug Her husband woke up on Friday and found her gasping for air and called 9-1-1. They took her to the hospital and she coded and never recovered. . they went on to say that they are looking towards the heart but she will let me now. when she knows. (not sure what coded means i wrote it the way they wrote it to me, and have since found out thats more or less the heart ( we have different words for things over there)
The help was there within 3 minutes and she was in hospital with in 5.
hopefully we can have a nice day knowing cm3 is in heaven,
Will be on and of all day think i just need to be with my mmc friends at the moment hope thats ok
Talk soon take care and hugs to all furbabies

Good morning MMC!

I could not help but think of dear Louann as soon as my eyes opened this morning. Louann not only loved Christmas (like the rest of us here)...but she loved Harry Potter! So today...I will watch one of the Harry Potter movies in memory of Louann.

I don't know about anyone else here...but when I feel sadness or troubled - my first thought goes to Christmas and the joy and happiness it brings. Don't get me wrong...I think about Christmas a lot (and I do mean A LOT) even when I am not sad - but when I'm not feeling the greatest...what helps me is thinking about Christmas - and watching a Christmas movie or listening to Christmas music (no matter what time of year it is).

That's one of the greatest things about MMC...its Christmas ALL THE TIME! And I'm thankful for it and the wonderful people here! I know I am "on again...off again" for posting - but I truly am thankful for you!

We all share a special bond...the magic and wonder and beauty of Christmas! We are all sooooooo blessed to be able to hold that every single day of the year!!!

Christmas, you...and remembering Louann will be in this ChristmasHeart as I go through my day...

Good Morning, Friends.

But a sad one without our dear Caninemom.

The count:
Days to the Season: 220
Days to Christmas Day: 262
Now under 3 weeks remain until we reach the the 200-day Season Window.
And only 19 days to the one third Milestone to Christmas Day.
Getting ever closer by the day.

Real nice weather yesteday with the high in the mid 60's and lots of sun all day.
Today should be a carbon copy.
Right now, we are at 41 degrees here.

Have a Super Sunday, Everyone.
Enjoy the rest of your Weekend.

Good Sunday morning, my Christmas friends.

As ChristmasHeart said above, the first thing I thought of as I woke this morning was the terrible news from yesterday. I hate to wake up crying.

Louann knew she was among friends and very much loved here, and she wasn't stingy in returning that love. What a wonderful person, and an example of how we are supposed to be.

My family is a little uncomfortable, because it's difficult to share grief over the loss of someone they never knew. But they love me, and they understand that I lost a beautiful friend, so they're being very supportive.

Let's try to have a good day. I'm sure Louann right now wishes we could all be happy with the memories, and I'll try. But the loss still stings terribly.

I hope y'all have a great day! I never say it, but you know that I love all of you.

I think Brad hit the nail on the head - it's hard for others who didn't know Louann to understand what we're all feeling right now.

Okay, yes, this is an internet forum and we don't know each other from Adam (no disrespect, Adam!!!!) We're a bunch of Christmas fruitcakes from all over the world and we have to trust our instincts that the people we're "talking" to are genuine. I mean, for all you know, I'm really a 325lb trucker named Burt who breeds budgies in his spare time.

My other half, whilst sympathising that I'm visibly upset, still maintains that it's just someone on the internet

Louann has never been "just someone" - ever. I hope that being here made her realise just how special and wanted she was.

There's a line in the Wizard of Oz ........

"A heart is not judged by how much YOU love, but by how much YOU are loved by others"

Boy, was she ever loved by others xxx

I wasn't expecting this but I had dreams of Louann all night long. She was really a big part of MMC and a big part of all of our lives individually.

Just remember when you feel down, Louann is one of the first to lift you up. Right now she is telling us she is praying for us and follows up with (((hugs)) like she always says in her replies to us when we feel sad. In fact one of the last emails I received from her was just a few days ago and she closed with, "I am always here for you"! I believe she is here for us right this very minute comforting us. She always put our needs ahead of her own. Maybe that is why I had so many dreams about her last night.

We are family here and have each other to get through this. I know we must make Merry in honor of Louann, it will just take time.

Hugs to all!
