Tom and I remember Libby all the time. It is hard to believe that it is 4 years since her death. Her daughter Kate reminds us, once again, how much we miss her.

Dearest Mommy,

Today marks four years since you physically left us. It's been a hard year for many reasons. A mix of good, bad, and in between. So many times I've yearned to talk to you about life and hear your insights, receive your support, and feel your hug. So many times I wished I could just pick up the phone, or talk in person over a cafe and a croissant, or make a plan to go to a museum, a book reading, see a movie, or just hang out together as a family. When we came back from our three week trip to Africa I so wanted to tell you all about our adventures, and share the amazing photos we took. My love of travel and adventures certainly came from you and Dad.

We continue to sing the songs you sang to me as a child, read the books you gave E, and E's favorite stuffie is one of the Gund Bears you gave him. We are working to instill many of the values and interests you and Dad possessed to your grandson like appreciation of nature, travel, love of the arts and books, being a good friend, curiosity, Joie de vivre, and having a good sense of humor. I've wanted you to be here to see Eliot growing into such a big boy. Can you believe he's heading to Kindergarten next week, and will be 6 in November??

But the universe had other ideas, and life must continue on, a little less bright, and a little less sparkly without your presence. I know you are still here, close to my heart. I think of you daily, and try my hardest to share memories of you with Eliot so he will know you too.

Mom- know you are missed and remembered. Today I sit at Paul's French cafe and eat Salad Nicoise, an almond croissant, and sip an iced creme cafe. All tasty things I know you would have enjoyed. Tonight Jason, Eliot, and I will share a dessert (perhaps your favorite, a creme brûlée), and toast you. But know this is only one day, and I celebrate daily that you were, and will always be my Mamaseeta, and Eliot's Nana Libby. For that we are lucky.

Loving you Always,
Katherine Lee Victoria Plum

Mom we celebrated your 84th birthday by doing some of the things you enjoyed - exploring nature, sculpture and art, and flowers at Garden in the Woods, and eating Italian at Gran Gusto in Cambridge (one of the places where we celebrated your birthday with you four years ago). Mom we love you so much! We raised a toast to you. Happy, Happy birthday! Wish you were here. ❤❤❤❤

Dearest Mom/Libby - how is it that Monday marked three years since you died? It feels both long and short. Always in our hearts and minds, I miss you so. You were beautiful inside and out. I continue to work to thread you through our lives, and make sure Eliot knows about you, and hears memories about you. We celebrated you on Sunday and Monday, told a few stories, and remembered some of the things you loved - fine French food, and art. Sunday night we ate at Bistro Duet and toasted you with a Negroni, and Monday Eliot and I visited the MFA. We followed an art "passport" scavenger hunt, and even supported local artists by purchasing two tiny paintings. It would have all been right up your alley. Nothing will replace your physical presence, but know you are right here, close to my heart. So lucky to call you my Mommy. Loving you...always! ❤❤❤❤❤❤

Mom - August 28, 2015 marked a year since you "shuffled off this mortal coil." Life is not as rich without you, yet I think of you everyday, and carry you (and your spirit) with me even in little things, like singing lullabies to Eliot that you sang to me, telling stories about you, sipping Chai Lattes, eating creme brûlée, and enjoying good food, watching birds and soaking in nature, looking for Corgis and wildflowers, making connections with old and new friends, and in so many other ways. I will be eternally grateful to call you my Mamacita. Miss you so much. "I'll be loving you always..." ❤❤❤❤

I'm so sorry to hear about Libby. She took amazing care of our cats the few times we went away. She left the most wonderfully detailed notes about their exploits.

I only had the pleasure of meeting Libby once, and she made such an impression on me. Very caring and warm, calling Ivy "Miss Pink" - you could tell she loved being a grandmother and had a big heart. She will be missed!

Libby was a very good friend in high school, where we worked together on the newspaper and yearbook. She did excellent work for both, maybe most notably in her incisive profiles of members of the class. Though we haven't been in touch since then, the memories are still strong. My condolences to the family.
