Rest In Peace- MONA DUFFY- BLOGGER AND FRIEND

Many of you probably knew
Mona Duffy.
She had a wonderful blog that 
she kept up for several years.
She was a beautiful soul.
She had an interesting life and 
some life struggles
like all of us do.

I am sad to say that she passed away
due to pancreatic cancer
early this morning.

I have not been blogging 
the last few days so I missed
the post from her son, Danny.

You can read it here

God Speed, Mona.
You will be missed.
I have many long, lovely emails 
from you that I cherish.
You were a very special lady
and I shall miss you dearly.

If you are so inclined,
please say a little prayer for 
Mona's family---
or sent good, loving thoughts
their way.
Thanks!

I'm so sad to hear this. I did see her son's post and I was shocked to hear that she was battling this horrible disease. I'll pray for her family.

Mona, was a very special lady and I had the pleasure of meeting her. I drove to her home in Riverside, CA, met her and it was like seeing a old friend. We talked and talked. met Howard. She then took me to lunch at her son's restaurant. We sat outside on the patio and had a great salad and talked some more.

We had been talking about getting together and one thing or another came up and we never got back together again. I will miss Sweet Mona. She is now with the love of her life, Pat and her daughter that she lost to cancer a couple years again. She also lost a son last fall and I believe her had a heart attack. Rest in Peace my dear friend.

Blogging is a wonderful thing in that we meet so many lovely people along the way. So sorry to read of Mona's passing.

Adam said...

I don't think I knew her, but I think it's sweet she had friends/family to let everyone else on blog land know.

I've been blogging so much that if you don't see me blog on a regular basis for more than a year with no goodbye, I'm probably dead.

Linda said...

She was a lovely lady and loved by so very many people.....

Susie said...

Diana, I have wondered about her, as I missed her blog posts. I saw the post from Danny, it broke my heart for her children. I only knew her thru blogging and I always enjoyed her . I will pray for Mona's family. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

Carol Slater said...

I do not think that I had ever read her blog, but I am so sorry to hear of her passing. Cancer is such a struggle and such a devastating disease.

Cranberry Morning said...

Praying for Mona's family. Thank you for this, Diana. The world is full of heartache. In many cases we can do nothing but take these families before the Lord, who knows and loves them, and is their greatest source of comfort.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this. I first visited her blog just because it had such a sweet, pretty name, and found her to be the same.

God Bless Mona's family. I followed Mona's blog for many years, as did many of those of us that are veteran bloggers. She shared her love for family, thrifting and decorating and opened up her heart to all of us. We will miss our sweet Mona.
Thank you for letting us know Diana and also to Marydon.

hugs,
Sissie

How very sad. I did not know Mona but I do know that pancreatic cancer is possibly one of the worse kinds. My hubby's father died with it and just last week, we lost one of our former pastors with it. My heart goes out to her family and thank you for sharing, Diana.

My condolences on the loss of your friend.

Lisa said...

I hate reading post like this but it reminds us all that life is short and tomorrow is never promised. We are all human and will suffer such pain in our lifetime. Prayer is powerful healing. I pray the family finds peace and understanding during this sad time.

Oh, how sad. The other night I was lying in bed waiting to go to sleep. And I was thinking of all the bloggers I've known who are now dead.
