Goodbye to my dear friend [ profile] moonlightmead. We knew your leaving was imminent (even though you'd been thumbing your nose at the doctors' prognosis for several months now) but when the news came this morning it still hit hard.

So many people around the world, both in Pros fandom and elsewhere, will be trying tonight to come to terms with your passing. You were such an exuberant, effervescent character and I'm sure many will agree that you were part of our lives for far too short a time.

Farewell, my friend. No more pain for you now xxx

She did love confounding expectations sometimes! But yes, far far too short a time - there can't be a person who knew her who wouldn't have asked for decades and decades more.
Here's to the love of dear friends who have left us too soon.

I suppose our one consolation is that she seemed to pack a lifetime's worth of friendship into those few short years we had with her.

Beautifully said, Chris. And I agree completely with Heliophile, decades more!

Absolutely, we could have all grown old disgracefully together!

Count me in on the decades wish! And you eloquently expressed so much of what we are feeling. We knew, and yet when the message came, it was still a blow. Yet I am glad she is no longer suffering, and wherever she is, she can move again, just as she always needed to do. *Hugs*.

I've no doubt that [ profile] moonlightmead and [ profile] probodie will be kicking up a storm together somewhere...

It says a lot about Mead, that her departure has effected so many people.

She will be missed.

I don't think anyone who ever met her, either online or in person, could have failed to be affected by her.

There's a big hole in all our lives now.

It's so difficult to accept the randomness and cruelty of fate, and immensely so in this case.

Life can be incredibly unfair, can't it. It's so difficult to get your head around sometimes.

Nicely put, C. There have been some lovely tributes to her online, here, FB etc. When someone dies people always say, 'A sad loss' and it sounds a bit trite but in this case it really 'is' a very sad and tragic loss. Life's a complete bugger sometimes. RIP lovely Moonlightmead.

Absolutely. She had such vitality and zest for life that it just doesn't seem possible that she isn't with us anymore.

A bugger indeed...

Lovely words, thank you.

Like you - and so many others - though I knew in my heart I'd get that email I was dreading soon, when it finally arrived it was still a shock. I hope she had some inkling of just how much she was loved by us all.

I hope she did too. We'll never forget her, that's for sure.
