Momo passed away this evening at 6.58pm. She was upstairs in bed with me, my mother, three aunts, a cousin and three dogs around her, chatting. I had left the room to check on my Doctor Who recording when it happened. I always had a feeling she'd catch me on the hop when she died!
So right now we're just making arrangements and trying to sort ourselves out.

She's been a constant in my life for nearly thirty seven years. It's going to feel so odd not having her looking over my shoulder at me, giving me hell or telling me stories.

I'm so so so sorry. You and Momo will stay in my thoughts. I have always been amazed by your dedication to Momo and I'm sure, even if she couldn't express it at the end, she knew how much you cared.

What a life. I have told my Mother about Momo and she said that Momo sounded like a hell of a woman and inspiration.

I am so sorry for your loss. I'll keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

From what you've said about her, Momo had a truly full life, and was a real influence on those around her. You may not have been right in the room when she passed, but you clearly gave her so much care and support.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself, try to remember the good times, when she was stronger, and just know that you were a very good granddaughter, and appreciated her while you had her.

I'm really sorry. I loved your stories about her, and I wish I could have been around a few years back when she was still telling stories herself. She really seemed like once of these people who are a force of Nature.

My thoughts go out to you, your mom and, of course, Meg and Jack who will no doubt feel Momo's loss in their own doggy way. I always felt like Momo was an honorary Snarker - we'll all miss her very much.
