Louanne was the very first person on MMC to reach out to me when I joined! I will always remember the first time she said "furbaby" when describing her pets - and it has stuck with me every since. Even my husband calls our Mercedes "furbaby", and I've passed that wonderful word to others with pets...and all thanks to Louanne.

I sadly lost touch with Louanne over the last little while. I will always remember her when I hear and say "furbaby" and see pictures of polar bears.

Such a lovely woman with so much heart and passion for the things she loved and believed in!

I echo the sentiments of the members here - we're family - and it's not easy to say goodbye to someone who spread cheer around like it was Christmas confetti. The best way I can celebrate Louann's memory is to honour her with a song I wrote several years ago that I think Louann/CM3 liked the best because it had to do with animals.

North Pole Christmas by: Auntie Mistletoe (sung to the tune of The Unicorn Song as performed by the Irish Rovers)

A long time ago when the North Pole was born
There were several animals true, one with a horn.
Sorry Mister Rhino, you simply will not do
Santa needs a magic reindeer, but thank you.
There were bunnies, polar bears, penguins and reindeer too
Living in the snowy place known as the North Pole to me and you.

Caleb the Elf harnessed Santa’s reindeer team
Polished his magic sleigh so it would gleam
Mrs. Claus kissed her husband goodbye
He sprang to his sleigh and flew up into the sky
With a merry Ho Ho Ho and a festive wave
He met with an Air Command Pilot, but he was brave
NORAD tracking Santa all over the place
Making sure he was escorted with style and grace

A long time ago when the North Pole was born
There were several animals true, one with a horn.
Sorry Mister Rhino, you simply will not do
Santa needs a magic reindeer, but thank you.
There were bunnies, polar bears, penguins and reindeer too
Living in the snowy place known as the North Pole to me and you.

Now Mrs. Claus had come to live with Santa Claus
She made his suits, fed him, shared stories of applause
Remembering her first Christmas Eve at the North Pole
Santa set out for his annual festive goal
To deliver special presents for girls and boys
Nibbling on the festive treats while spreading Christmas joys

A long time ago when the North Pole was born
There were several animals true, one with a horn.
Sorry Mister Rhino, you simply will not do
Santa needs a magic reindeer, but thank you.
There were bunnies, polar bears, penguins and reindeer too
Living in the snowy place known as the North Pole to me and you.

Santa returned after his Christmas Eve flight
And the dwellers of the North Pole were in delight
They held a special party to celebrate their joys
Singing and dancing - young elf girls and boys
And Santa shared a reminder of a the special reason
Mrs. Claus nodded at the best joy of the season
A party - a Birthday in a stable long ago and far away
Provides us with Blessings on Christmas Day.

There were bunnies, polar bears, penguins and reindeer too
Living in the snowy place known as the North Pole to me and you.


A Special Gift

You’re giving me a gift each day,
Discovering similarities along the way,
In sharing cherished days gone by,
Waiting for the season to greet us again,
Your friend, in Christmas, I remain.
A. Mistletoe


Thanks for being here Louann - thanks for being you.

A dear friend has left us for her heavenly home above
Our sorrow at times seems to be more than mere words can express or say missing her heart so filled with love.
A gentler, kinder soul never walked upon this land
A truer friend we will not find in this life time again.
She honored us with her friendship, love, and loyalty.
Honor to her was not just a word you see
The tears and sorrow we feel now we understand for it is our time to grieve,
But a part of her lives on in each on us ,This I do believe
For those who touched her the most and you know who you are
She's never far from you just look at the night sky for her face is in every star
GOD called you home too soon my friend such a pity we can't changed what was meant to be
But I know I have been honored to know no sweeter soul, our friend Louanne Jeffries

Hi everyone...Louanne' s niece asked if we can say a few prayers.
Dane, Louanne ' s husband has said that Wishbone won' t eat.
The poor baby misses his momma. So I will pray for little Wishbone and of course
the entire family...because today is a hard, hard day...It is Louanne' s funeral...
We are all with You.....Louanne is, too...smiling how much she was loved

Sending prayers up for Louanns family.
And poor little Wishbone. This is just heartbreaking. Praying for him and the other furbabies xo

when I heard of Louanne´s passing...I thought a lot about Wishbone...I knew how concerned she was about him being so sick.....she posted a sweet but unfortunately blurry picture of her and Wishbone in her arm on facebook in March...saying how much she hopes that it will be long until she has to say goodbye to him..........it was not long...and he kind of had to say good bye...I have the feeling he will follow his mommy swiftly...

“Love is stronger than death even though it can't stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death.”

God love you Louann- I know you are not far from any of us.

Today and hereafter will be the hardest. When I heard of Louanne's passing, I immediately thought of this poem by Emily Dickinson. Having experienced death in my family many times, I know this feeling well. RIP, sweet Christmas angel.


"The Bustle in a House”
Emily Dickinson

The bustle in a house
The morning after death
Is solemnest of industries
Enacted upon Earth.

The sweeping up the heart
And putting Love away
We shall not want to use again
Until Eternity.
