Good morning BC, yes I miss it too. I hope the geraniums survive cuddled up in the fleece.

I think that aspidistra is beyond saving don't you. Here's a bowl with hyacinths growing and another one with daffodils. We can look forward to them flowering. <3 <3 <3 <3

Morning all. Daff sent me some fleece to keep my plants warm in winter, and I thought of her yesterday as I wrapped up the geraniums. Hope Mr D is taking care of himself.

I miss coming on here and seeing all the Troops in their raggedy uniforms so I thought I would drop in to water the drooping aspidestra and rake the fire.

Love to all :-) <3

Cats most certainly do. My late Mother in Laws cat passed 2 years to the day (Boxing Day) after her. I think the old darling wanted her cat to cuddle.

Daff loved her cats she showed us photos many times
how strange Poldara going to same day
but what is meant to be will be
its sort of comforting in a way that they are together x

Thank you Ann. I mostly give up after a few tries.

It is wonderful to read so many lovely posts about Daff., she must have been one really special lady.


AnninGlos Report 29 Nov 2011 17:39

Eileen, instead of clicking on the page numbers click on the triangle next to the word 'post' at the top, that will take you to the last page. It takes so long to load the thread because it is so long and then it times out.


AnninGlos Report 29 Nov 2011 10:38

Aaw Sue He/she went with her. As you say shivery but wonderful.


supercrutch Report 29 Nov 2011 00:46

A strange thing happened, later on the day Daff passed away so did Poldara (the eldest cat).

Gave me the shivers but in a good way.

I too will of course keep vigil at 11am. Bless you my lovely friend. So much missed.


supercrutch Report 27 Nov 2011 20:39

I don't know of any photos of Daff's birthday party Ann, what a shame.

When I was chatting with R I mentioned that we would get a photo album together over the coming months which we could add to the other tributes that will be kept for her granddaughters. So I'll be on the scrounge.

Tomorrow I am sure the service will bring many a tear but afterwards there will be laughter as we all recall Daff's antics.

Dear Jude, what a lovely posting.

I was thinking that, maybe the ones of us who cannot attend tomorrow, could at 11.00., take a quiet moment to reflect on this lovely,lovely lady. I will be out tomorrow, but will do this, as I will not be able to light a candle

Take Care

l met Daffers about 4 times...every meeting was filled with laughter.

She was so strong, genuine, caring, funny and honest. A beautiful person.
l am so sad that l can't be at the funeral tomorrow, have been thinking about her so much.
l will light a candle on the candle website and one of my special ones here at 11am.

R I P Daffers, you are so missed.

The Daffs family....stay strong, she will be watching over you!!

love jude vic and madoc xxxx

Wipe's away my tear's :-(

Reading all the lovely tribute's to Daff and all your lovely story's about her mad me cry and wish I'd been lucky like some of you to have met her. I can only speak of her as a friend on my laptop and say she made me laugh many a time and also pm'd me with word's of comfort and sometime's stern truth's of reallity in the nicest posssible way as our Daff knew how, I as other's will miss her dearly mostly for her strength of character and sense of humour. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Sue you have reminded me. Did anyone take photos at the birthday party? For some reason I didn't, I think we were all moving around too much, and I thought Daff would have but she didn't. Shame that.

reading all the reminiscenses I think we can say that not one of us will leave behind anywhere near the number of wonderful memories on GR that Daff has left.


JoyBoroAngel Report 23 Nov 2011 12:17

I was lucky enough to meet Daff many times
both at meets and a couple of social get togethers
she has been there for me many times
giving me hope when I lost mine bless her
I have some really happy memories of her
her humour and that welsh smile that could light up the darkest room
she was a brave woman who inspired us all
who even though she was suffering herself thought of others first
and how kind she was to baby satan she loved him
taking him books crayons and jigsaws to pusses wedding
what a fuss she made of him a really good day to remember
also at Peterbrough her famous sun stroke
trying to get her out the taxi at the hotel was so funny
and the next morning she was bright as a button at breakfast
I will always remember her belly dancing with Rach
she was the star of the night I never wanted that night to end
I will miss Daff so much with love
and i will take very good care of that hope she gave me xx <3 <3

We were both at Llanelli, Swansea, Peterborough and I was a very late arrival at Newport because of the devastating news about my daughter. I had kept it together all that day but once I saw Daff and she gave me a' Daff hug' I just broke down and sobbed. That's how comfortable she made me feel about expressing emotions.

I, like everyone else, cried laughing at Peterborough when Daff had her bout of 'sunstroke' and we suffered the Klingon :-P

Swansea was the first meet after she had lost her hair and it was just growing back and she looked absolutely gorgeous. Though she laughed when I said she looked liked a loo brush!

Visiting her in hospital she was so positive it put many of us to shame. When she was sedated in intensive care it was the only time I could talk to her and she couldn't answer back :-D

She had the photo of Simon Cowell framed and set up in her sitting I can remember the thread where we had her running down the M4 dragging her drip stand trying to get to him :-D

She was on really good form during her birthday party although she completely forgot to take any photos!

Talking to her on the phone when she had one of the granddaughters there was a nightmare cos she was constantly talking to them about pinching their bottoms :-D :-D she adored them and loved most little ones belonging to others.

We took our grandson to see her and he went for a cuddle straight away, she had a child magnet I think. ;-)

I shall miss her so much, easy to talk to, laugh and cry with and most importantly her complete unselfish generosity of spirit.
