In a way we all 'met' her. We may not have met her physically or been able to describe her face but we still knew her. Perhaps a physical meeting can be a barrier, who knows. I think her virtual presence here on this board has had a greater influence than many realise.
Sad to see that Meme has passed but glad she is out of pain and with Papa and Dogman now. Her kindness and gentleness will be what I remember the most. For as gentle and kind as she was, she was strong. I will always remember her as a woman of faith too. I know what adult family member CLSS means and my heart especially goes out to this person. My prayers and thoughts go out the the whole family. She is another angel for us.
I believe humans get things done, not because we're smart but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee!

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
Rest well, dear Meme. My fondest hope is that you & Papa have been reunited. Dear young relative, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you truly know how much you meant to her. You were like an angel to her & now she will watch over you & be your angel. I will miss you, dear Meme. You were all good things rolled into one wonderful person. Love, catcat
I will miss Meme's hugs. Here's one of my favorite things she posted, after she found out about her cancer: "You can do this and I am a living testimony that one thing less is more and one thing done is done- and you can do one more thing no matter how your feel- feelings do not prevent us from dreaming-

I read this thread a couple of days ago, but I did not post anything. I just didn't know what to say yet. The night before last, I had a dream about Meme. She was an angel dressed in cream and gold garments. She said, "I'm just waiting for a door to open." It was such an important thing that I kept telling myself I had to remember that, and I repeated it over and over. Then I woke up and was sleepily looking for a pen and paper, but I started to fall asleep again. I said it out loud so that I would remember. I have no idea what it means.
What I remember most about Meme was her unique combination of gentleness and strength. She would not hesitate to speak her mind and disagree with opinions, but she did so in the most diplomatic and kind way. I really feel that I've lost a dear friend. Meme is surely with her beloved Papa and Dogman. Meme - Thank you for being an angel here on earth.
To Meme's dear young female relative - my sincere condolences on your loss. I am sure you have many sweet memories of Meme. I pray that you have peace and comfort in the days to come.
MeMe's strength is still here helping everyone through her spirit. She never let us down in life and certainly won't stop now.
RIP Dear MeMe..... you are pain free and keeping much order up in Heaven.

Dog ownership is like a rainbow. Puppies are the joy at one end. Old dogs are the treasure at the other.
Meme's wisdom, kindness and faith touched so many lives. And now we all carry a little bit of her soul; threads woven into the fabric of our character to give us strength to carry on. We thank you for the blessing of your love, Meme.
I feel your presence when I face the challenges of de-squaloring! And I will honor you by continuing the battle!
