unfortunate happening

This is Daisy's daughter Lydia writing.

It is with much sadness that I inform you all that unfortunately my Mum passed away this morning.

She has been ill throughout this week becoming increasing weak and confused by last night. Last night we had decided to get her into hospital this morning however this was too late as this morning I discovered her. My dad had been sleeping in a seperate room to enable her proper rest. We do not yet know the official cause of death. She has been taken away and most likely a post mortem will be carried out on Monday.

She spoke of her blog to me often and the friends she had made through this. I really wanted to find a way to let you all know.

If anybody would like to contact us please leave a comment and I'll give you my email address.

Lots of love

Lydia xxx

Aloha Lydia.
I just spoke with Lisa..I have no words left. I had only met your mum once, but felt we had a special bond.
Peace and sympathy to you all there.
Peace, Kai.

Lydia, Lisa has just phoned me from California and like Kai, can not find words.
I met up with your mum too and what a wonderful, caring person she was.
I am in North Yorkshire, just outside Whitby.
My e-mail number is..

Sending our deepest sympathy to you all.


Sue said...

Hi Lydia,
Mrs. Nesbitt (Denise) just rang me with this terrible news. I'm so, so sorry to hear it. You poor darling you must feel in shock. Words can't express how we feel. We met your mum at Thirsk when we had a Glitter Sisters meeting there, she was a wonderful lady who took everything in her stride. My husband died suddenly in 1999 and I can empathise on how you feel. At the moment probably numbness. If you every need to talk please feel free to email me for my number. I will light a candle for you and your dad tonight and ask that the Glitter Sisters do the same. Sending lots of hugs to you all.

Love and light Sue in North yorkshire

I cannot put my feelings in to words Lydia. I read your post this morning a few times, thinking I read it wrong. I had not met your mom in person but still I cared very deeply for her...for so many reasons. I send you my heartfelt sympathy, my deepest regrets for this loss. A loss that will be felt by so many.
Thank you Lydia for letting us know, I know that had to be so terribly difficult.Please extend this to your father and brother as well. You were all such a joy to her.

Autumn said...

I am so sorry to hear this news. I did not get the change to meet your mom or correspond with her privatly, but did read her blog. She seemed like a wonderful caring person and I will very much miss her blog. May you and your family find peace along the way in this sad time

My heart breaks for you, I was your mums Sharpie friend, i had just sent her the whole pack, it was a lovely meeting of the mind, for all things Sharpies. Please know you mum was loved in many many ways.

Tina Diva said...

Dear Lydia
I didn't know your mum, but my best friend Claire is one of her blogging friends and they met up earlier this year with some of the other Glitter Sisters in Thirsk. I know Claire adored your mum and will be devasted to hear this news. Claire is herself in hospital after suffering a stoke some weeks ago. I'm sending thoughts and empathy on her behalf.

Sheila said...

Lydia, I cannot find the words to say how shocked and saddened I am by your Mum's passing.
We had recently exchanged a flurry of emails, about our favourite books...
I can't believe this news.
My heartfelt sympathy is with you and your father and brother.
We have lost a dear and treasured member of this community..

judie said...

I'm so sorry Lydia. I am in total shock. I cannot believe this what I read. Daisy was very special. Hugs to you and your family.

craftyhala said...

Wow,i only knew your Mom through her blog and she'd visit mine...she always made me smile.
My Dad passed last July and I have been feeling sad for a time now and well...
My family is sending you our hugs and our deepest sympathy.
Be well,

Kate said...

What words can anyone say at a time like this. We all try but feel so inadequate. Just know that your mom was loved by so many who never even met her. I loved reading her blog and sharing a friendship through email and participating in all our wonderful swaps. She will be missed terribly by all of us.

Sending love and hugs to you and your family....

Gemma said...

Dearest Sweetpea...
Over the past year I have gotten to be friends with your Mum through blogs and eMails. She is someone that I felt very close to here.
I am shocked!!!!
My heart is very heavy.

PG said...

Daisy Lupin will be missed by so many people, she was a sweet and wonderful person and will not be forgotten. How like here to post on her blog when she was so desperately ill. Please accept my sympathy and thoughts.


Julie Marie said...

I am in total shock. There are tears running down my face for a friend I've never met. I was introduced to her through her blogs just a few months ago. Her blog was among the first I'd read every day. She sent such kind comments to me. I hope you do not close down her blog as I would still like to re-visit it.

Lydia I am so very deeply saddened by the loss of your mum...I cannot imagine the pain it must have caused you to lose the woman who was so immensely PROUD of YOU! Who spoke nothing but beautiful kind words of you, I think you must have been the light of her life. She adored you. She made sure we all knew it too, through her blogging.
I am so very sorry for yours and your family's loss, please accept my condolences.
Blog land won't be the same without your mum's poetry events and storytelling events...
Much love and light,
Blue The Spa Girl.

talj said...

Dear Lydia and all of Daisy's family and friends, I just want to extend my sympathy to you all at this sad time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you {{HUGS}} from Leeds xx

Tinker said...

Dear Lydia,
I think of you as SweetPea since that is how your sweet mum would always refer to you - I have been crying for the last 15 minutes since I read the news on Violettes message board and I am still in shock, I can only imagine how shocked and saddened you and your family must be. My heart goes out to you all. Even though we only knew each other through blogging and e-mails, her words conveyed so much wisdom, love and beauty and meant so much to me and so many others. It was always evident in her words about you and all of her family, how much love and pride she had in all of you. I hope it helps a little, to know how much she was loved by so many others in the world, who will be sorely missing her, too.

Sending loving, healing thoughts of peace and light to all of you.
Many, many (((HUGS))) to you all. XOXO

violette said...

I am so devastated to hear of your Mom's passing. Oh my gosh....she was such a dear sweet soul. I keep rubbing the quilt piece she made for my birthday thinking that feeling the art will maybe bring her back or at least make me feel her presence.

My heartfelt condolences go to you and your family.

Your mom will be so dearly missed.

I have just landed here, following links. I wandered around for awhile. It is so sad that such a special person left. Yet she must have been a darling to the gods for passing away like that.
Wishing her a beautiful trip. And to you, the sweet richness of her presence.

Golden Granny said...

I am so sorry about your mum. We made friends in our blogs and I have a quilt square that she made in a quilt swap. I will cherish that square and will remember her great art and writings. May God give you and your father the strenght to get through the loss of your mum. I know when you loose your mum you loose your best friend. You and your family will be in my prayers.
God Bless you

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. I'm in shock, actually.
I come by here occasionally, and haven't been for a long while, and hadn't seen her messages anywhere for some time, so thought I would drop by and say hello. Daisy's blog has been wonderful to read, and she will be missed by many. She seemed an inspiring and creative person.
Sending love to your family.
Peace, Salix
