Oh Alice, I am so sorry. You have my condolences. I will always remember and miss your mother.

Alice, I am so very sorry for your and your family's loss. We loved Marianna, and she will be missed but fondly remembered. Love and peace be with you. (and thanks for updating us.)


Oh, this news saddens my heart. Your mom was such a terrific writer. She conveyed her feelings so well with words. I know all of her readers thought she was so good at what she did. I'm sure you did, too.

My condolences on your loss, and condolences to the rest of the family and even to her dear little cat. She will be missed.

Thinking of you all with a sad heart tonight. Take care of yourselves.


Please accept my sincere condolences on losing your mother, and your dad losing his wife. I don't have a blog, but enjoyed popping in and reading her and a host of other blogs. She went so quickly, and I'm sure her pets will miss her presence, too.


I'm so sorry for your loss! She will be missed.


I'm so so sorry. Please know we are thinking of you and your family as well.


Dear Alice and family,
It's 4.43 as I read this. Please accept my deepest condolences.

Leslie Bary

Thank you for letting us know.

This is so shocking, somehow.

I miss her and will always.


So glad it was peaceful; so sorry for your loss and the loss so many of us who enjoyed her wisdom and company are feeling. Thank you for this notice.

Marianna's family, I am so very sorry for your loss. Marianna will be greatly missed and never forgotten. Her friendship meant so much to my sister and I felt honored to also call her my friend. Terry, you and your daughters have my sincere sympathy.

Thankyou for letting is know, Alice.
I'm glad it was short and peaceful for her.
Her blog, always good, will be sadly missed by us fellow bloggers.

May the pain for all be minimal, she bowed out gracefully.


I'm so sorry to hear that, Alice. I had only followed her blog for a short time but I really enjoyed her perceptive and amusing comments on a wide range of subjects. I shall miss her astuteness.


Oh my gosh! I've been away so long from visiting blogs, and just stopped by to say hello. I can't believe it! I thought your mom had so much more time and I'm heartbroken. She was such a loving, beautiful, brilliant woman. Please give Terry a hug for us and tell him Art and Kay send their condolences.


I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm a regular commentator on Nancy Nall's blog and Hattie occasionally commented there too. I wish you all Grace and Peace.


There are no words to express how sad it is to see such a special human being leave us. I will always be grateful that I had the chance to come across the wonderful writing Marianna produced. How proud you, her family, must be to have had her in your lives. I will miss her but never forget her.


I am so sorry to hear this news. I did not know your mom but I read her blog all the time. I linked over from my friends blog, she lives in Papaaloa. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family.


My sincere condolences to all your family. I will miss her.


Thank you for letting us readers know. My heart goes out to you and your family. Losing a mother is a difficult chapter in life. But something makes me think that Hattie has prepared you well for it.

I have been very fortunate to have found Hattie's blog, albeit late, and I was immediately struck by her sharp observations and clear analysis, always refreshing and never without compassion, kindness and certainly never hopeless. And soon enough, I started to look forward to her posts. I will miss her.

So sorry for her loss. She was a very special, caring woman and will be missed :(


Deepest sympathy. Oh how I'll miss her analyses and her deep kindness.
Her memory will linger forever.



Requiescat In Pace.


I am so very sorry. Namaste dear Hattie.


So sorry to learn of Marianna’s passing from this world. I knew her only through her words on this blog, but celebrate her life. Treasure your memories with love and laughter, knowing she brought pleasure to many others lives with her thoughtful words and humor.

Mage Bailey

So sorry for your loss...we will all miss her many talents and wonderful abilities. Thank you for letting us know.

You and Terry are in my thoughts. I am so sorry for you and your family. They broke the mold with Marianna.

Rain Trueax

So sorry to hear this and for your loss as well as that of her readers. So sad when someone is taken before what we consider to be their time. Glad she had family with her.
