I just wanted to thank you all so much for your messages.

It is so nice to see how my mum touched you all, I read the comments with tears streaming down my face- this is a good thing though :)

In a few days I do hope to email you all once things begin to settle down.

Any emails you send to my mums address i will also read. My Dad, Brother and I really appreciate your messages, love and support. We will be printing all these off to keep hold of.

My thought and prayers are with you all. :)

Dearest Lydi and family,
I lost my Mom only 6 months ago and I know the pain of loss. Your mom would email during that time, she was comforting. She sent me one of her fairy podlings infused with her special magic to help heal and comfort. I only wish I could offer you a tangible comfort - what I can offer you is sympathy, empathy, love, support and deep caring. She was extraordinary, your mom, and as you can tell touched many lives with her specialness. There are tributes to her on various blogs now, including my own. She would have liked that and perhaps been a wee bit shy about the attention. I know in my heart she and Pixie will roam the garden she loved together.
Sending warm hugs with love to your brother and father as well,

Dear Lydia, Am so deeply sorry to learn of the terrible loss of your mother. She will be sorely missed by all those whose lives she touched. She and I exchanged a few messages about politics and Paris and I admired her so much. It's impossible to believe she's gone. My thoughts and prayers goes out to you and your family. xo - Tara, (Paris Parfait)

I lost my mum 13 years ago and still miss her...yet the wisdom, laughter, love she shared is a constant source of comfort and hope.

I am sending my thoughts to you and your family. I was lucky enough to play in a "sock swap" with your mother. She sent me some lovely socks and a fairy card! :) I will think of her each time I wear my fun polka dot socks!

Naturegirl said...

Lydia no words can take away your pain but do know that your mother will forever be in the hearts of many within the blog community.She touched each of us in her own special way.Your mom and I shared and loved rading "Night Gardening" I have read this book several times and now I will reread it and think of dearest ~Daisy!~
"within the shadows of night in a grand old city, in a graceful neighborhood, there was a garden where lives would be changed and hopes renewed and two hearts forever restored" words that your mom and I loved reading.
Peace be to you and your family

Your mother's blog was the first one on my private list of "favorites"...and I usually went there first!
She had a rich life which she shared through her writing talents!

Sue said...

I'm so sorry for your loss and will be thinking of you.
The pain will finally go but the memories will linger forever. We're holding onto this thought hubby lost his dad on Wednesday night and we're devastated.

Carol said...

Oh my, dear Lydia and family, the sudden death of your dear Mum Hilary came to me as a shock this morning! I send you all my sympathies and hope you can somehow cope with it! Your mum and I did a swap in November 2006 we've exchanged selfmade Christmas cards and ornaments, I will always cherish the ones she's sent to me! I'm incredible sad! I'm not sure if you know that Robyn, here is a link to her blog: is/was her soul sisters and best online friend and she's grieving deeply now too, her heart is broken. I wish you and your family and especially your dad all the best and lot's of strength and to be there for eachother! You are in my thoughts! Hugs Carol from Germany xox

I've just discovered the sad news of Beautiful Daisy's passing. I'm so sorry for your loss. I hadn't had gotten to know your mom very well as yet but she shared her lovely soul with us all without holding back. She inspired many with her kindness and her humour and her talent. Too soon she went but so wonderful her time with us all. You're all in my prayers.

Take care, Heather

kim said...

I am so terribly sorry. I just found out, as I have been out of town. I was just getting to know your mum. She visited my blog and invited me to send her something for the poetry fest blog.

I am just so shocked at this. I am so, so sorry.

Beth said...

I am so sorry. I was out of town on vacation and didn't know. I am so sad right now. I just can't believe that your wonderful Mum is gone. Please know that you and your brother and Dad are in my thoughts and prayers. I will always remember my dear Daisy!!!

Jeanie said...

I am so deeply sorry to hear about your mom, Lydia. This is a terrible shock to all of us, but I know you and your family hurt most of all. Her beautiful writing inspired so many of us. My thoughts are with you. I only knew her from her blog, yet she was so very open and generous with her thoughts and her history, I felt as though I'd known her a very long time. She will be missed. Please do post again when you can. Meanwhile, take the time to heal yourself. That will take time.


AnnieElf said...

My heart is breaking for you and your family and just, well, all of us. I just returned from vacation last night and started catching up today with blogs. Your mum's was the first one I went to. I am so, so sorry. Every thought is a prayer.


Rosa said...

Dearest Lydia:

I am shocked to hear of your loss. Daisy was such a kind soul who, like you said, touched so many here in the blogging community. I did a swap with her and we corresponded on and off. Iit will always mean a lot to me knowing we connected in the littlest of ways. God bless you and father as you go through this difficult time. Hugs. Rosemary/Nashville TN USA

Lydia, I am very sorry to learn of your mother's passing. She and I had never corresponded personally, but I enjoyed her blog immensely.

In the spirit of blogging, I have posted something about her on my blog:

Your family is in my thoughts.

Lesley said...

I am so shocked to hear this, Lydia. I had only recently found your Mum's blog via her commenting on some poetry I had included on mine, and she very kindly asked if I would like to send some of my favourite childhood poetry to her poetry page. I had been meaning to contact her about it eventually, but (as is often the case with me), I had not got around to it. And now this! I assumed (from reading her blog), that she had picked up a virus of some sort, but obviously it was a lot more serious than that. I am so very sorry, my thoughts are with you and your family.

On mid December 2007 I found a link somewhere on the blogoshpere to Cats in the Kitchen, this is my second visit. Sad to find a blogger has died but what a memorial to leave behind. I'm just so grateful to Lydia for leaving this final post to let everyone know that this wasn't just another 'abandoned' blog.
I expect this holiday was sad for the family.But if they know that people are still happening onto Daisy Lupin then she'll live on for as long as her blog is still around.
With sympathy and a Cyber Hug.

I didn't know your Mother. But through those who did know and love her, I am coming to do so.

A year later, may I tell you that my heart goes out to you, and the rest of her family.

Thank you for allowing her blog to remain. See, a year later, and I am finding her... She is still being found.

Gentle hugs,

A year later and your mother is still in our thoughts and loved by so many that have found her blog through other blogs that were friends of your mom. My heart goes out to you and I want to thank you for keeping this blog. I know a lot of people still read it and a lot of new people have found it too.
Just know that I am thinking of your mom and all of you, she was a fantastic woman and I'm sad I didn't get to know her before she passed on.
I will plant a daisy in my garden in her honour this MidSummer.
Lots of love !!

June said...

Hi Lydia. Apologies for the intrusion. I am very behindhand. Today I came across your mum's blog because I had googled in "Beshlie Heron". Your mum's blog came up because in one post she had mentioned Beshlie's name. She, and I too, too had kept a Beshlie card for many years. I was going to post about that but saw that the blog had stopped in 2007.
I was so sorry to read on and see news from you about Daisy's death. I noted that the blog was full of lovely things by Daisy.June.
So sorry.

Dear Lydia,
I have discovered your mother's blog on the morning of a full moon this December of 2011. My little daughters, ages 3 and 8, attend a Waldorf school here in Seattle. They placed their shoes out on the porch last night in hopes that the moon fairies would come visiting, which of course they did. We found the lovely artwork on your mum's blog looking for a picture of moon fairy. They certainly were not disappointed. I am sure you must miss your mother every day. Please know her bright spirit is still blessing those around her with magic and love. I will be sharing her site with friends, who I know will also enjoy it. I was delighted to hear her speaking of Cornwall. I have never been there, but after reading Rosamunde Pilcher's "Coming Home" have always wanted to visit. It has always been my intention to bring my mother and my girls there. A very merry Christmas to your family.
With love,
Kristi Hartman
