Hi Mom.
It's our 33rd anniversary today. And the same day you left this world.
I think about you all the time. Remembering all of the great times.
You were the best Mom.

Thinking about you today, enjoying looking back at photos and family memories. Trying to forget the struggle of the last couple years of your life. No one should ever have to watch a parent go through that. I will keep the good memories close to my heart. Grateful for your love and everything you did for us. Miss you terribly.

Love, Lynn

Can't believe it has been a year already. I miss mom a great deal. Even when she no longer knew who I was, I knew who she was and miss that comfort.

Like Dee and Walter, I met Luella online, and then a couple of times in real life. Online and off, I enjoyed her company, her wicked sense of humor, and our fights (usually friendly, never bitter) about politics. While we lost touch in recent years, I have always remembered her fondly and will miss her greatly. I'm sorry for Lynn's and her family's loss.

Though I didn't know Luella personally, I felt like I did because her daughter, Lynn, talked about her so much - what a fascinating woman and life! My thoughts and prayers are with Lynn and all the family during this time.

I was happy to have met her a couple times in person, and years online.

I will always remember you - rest in peace, Luella!

"Met" Luella, or BBB as we know her, on an online community.

After 16 years of contact my memories will always be of her wide ranging intelligence, her political commitment, her humour, her wisdom, her never failing wonder at the world and her kindness.

She is sadly missed.

I loved this woman, although I knew her only on line. She was a wonderful writer and she displayed an interest in everything. She was always my friend and I am missing her.

Love you so much, mom. Saying goodbye to you is very painful, but I know you had a very long ordeal and am glad you are no longer suffering. I miss you.

Never met you but always heard good things about you.I'm sure that we could have stayed up till the early hours of the morning chatting about music.

Rest well dear lady.
