Good morning to all! It is a very sad day for me, as my dearest Godmooma (as I called her) will be laid to rest tomorrow. Calling hours and service tonight. I am missing her so incredibly much this morning and asked Tan Ja if I could join on here so that I can be close to the people who have said so many kind words about my dear aunt/friend/mentor/godmother. 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!

Thank you so much for coming and sharing your memories of your Louanne. We know today and tomorrow are tough days and we wish so much we could be there. Our love goes out to your entire family. We so keenly feel very much the same.

First of all, thank you for posting. We are very sorry for your loss. We all loved Louanne and you will feel her strong presence here.

Loaunne really made all of us happy and was the first to lift you up if you were feeling down. Her and I had some very sentimental conversations through private messaging just days before her passing. I will cherish those conversations and still go back reading them. I called her my prayer partner. She was the first person I wrote to requesting prayer if I needed it and she would write to me for prayer request in return. She would usually close her messages with telling me she loved me and offered a virtual (((hug))) after she signed her name it followed with xoxo. I am missing her a lot and I know that you are as well.

Louanne and I shared a passion for animals and discussed our thoughts on that in private messaging all the time. She was the aunt to my furchildren, as we use to tease about. I believe she is the aunt to everyone's furchild on these forums! =)

I love that you all are honoring Louanne with a rose in her seat. She had been talking about attending the wedding and glad those arrangements will be made in honor of her. That is very sweet!

We are very happy that you decided to join here and you will find the nicest people around on these forums. Let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

I have been keeping you all in prayer and will continue to do so.

Hey you!

Glad you found your way to us; all the good people end up here

We will all be thinking about you over the course of the next few days and know we're there in spirit with you.

Loving the chair/rose idea for the wedding - I think that's a lovely subtle way of including her in your day

Talk soon

M

PS
I always thought she was more of a "LouannE" as well!
