    So sorry Mo. Yesterday walking 7 pm through the schoolyard, I thought, “Julie’s gone.” Hope you are okay.

  4. Love and light to you Mo

  5. Nancy says:

    MC – sad to hear that Julie has died – it has been a hard and sad time for her and for you as a friend. As you say may she fly free; and may you hold the memories and fragments of hope and joy amidst the sadness. B

  8. I’m so sorry Mo. There is a particular pain with the loss of such a friend . . . I have so few left which is part of ageing I guess. My mother spoke of it saying “everyone else has gone” and despite reminders that her children were still here, it wasn’t the same. Her friends knew parts of her that no one else did, they shared other memories and experiences.

  9. Marti says:

    My dear Mo, deepest love and condolences to you and Rod over the passing of your special Julie. Like the many knots, stars, stitches, that you created in your memory bag for Julie, the color of indigo, that mighty blue that transcends all other colors, know that all of these wrap around you now in your time of sorrow, in your time of celebration of her life. All of these wrap around you in spirit, in love, in comfort for Julie is forever stitched into your hearts, your memories and she will always be with you and Rod. When that day comes that you both move to your Blue Mountains, with that first breeze, that first sunrise, that first rainbow, she will be with you…for those we love always walk alongside us, forever.

    Love, Mo…to you and Julie and the Old Man

  11. Eliene says:

    A sad time but she needs to be remembered with the laughter, the memories, the times you all shared. Each time you think or speak of her, her star will sparkle. May she glow brightly.

  12. Lana says:

    Dearest Mo I lost my best friend 3 years ago. We met at art school where we had so much fun being naughty, laughing at all the wrong times, hearts filled with dreams. I still miss her so much. My heart goes out to you because best friends are irreplaceable. But I’m sure she will be looking over your shoulder when you’re making a special piece of art or listening to a special piece of music or just walking down a lane looking at the flowers. Tears will flow, I know but you’ll see her in the most unexpected places and she will always live on in your heart. Sending love to you in this time of sorrow❤️

  13. Carol says:

    (((Mo))) May your memories of Julie wrap you in love at this sad time. Fly free, Julie.

  14. Susan Bowers says:

    My heart goes out to you Mo. I too lost my best friend to cancer a few years ago. She was younger than me with children just finished schools and into uni. Felt as though she, and they, were robbed. For me, it is just not possible to fill that spot. I still think of her so often and smile often when I do something which reminds me of her. It will be the same for you I am sure and I hope your heart will ease soon.

  15. Rods song made me weep.
    Love and friendship never end and still there is grief.

  16. Rene Walkin says:

    I am very sorry for your loss, Mo. R.I.P. Julie xx

  17. Mo Crow says:

    Beth from Still Life Pond sent this e-mail as WordPress wouldn’t allow her to post;
    So sorry Mo.
    What a beautiful song to send Julie on her way.
    Thinking of you and sending love.

      (((Beth & everyone))) thanks so much for all the kind words, a really beautiful thing happened on Friday, we found a well grown Camellia “Yuletide” at a local nursery & planted it out in one of our gardens just as Julie was dying. She was a great nurserywoman, they won an environmental award for their water recycling dam, drainage & irrigation system set up for their growing area where they produced perfectly grown hedging material. We will think of her whenever we visit.
      There are so many good memories since we became friends in 1976 & and for Old Man Crow even more so, he & Julie were such an inspiring duo for ten years from the 70’s into the early 80’s, she was the glue that held us all together…

    Oh Mo. I’m so sorry …. Love to you and Rod in Julie’s memory.

  19. Hazel says:

    Big wide love to you both, may the years of memories wrap themselves around you in comfort.

  20. Saskia van Herwaarden says:

    we don’t get to choose our families, but can choose our friends, life-long friends become like family….so very sorry for your loss ((Mo&OldManCrow))

  21. jude says:

    ah, so sorry Mo, friends are special…

  22. arlee says:

    So sorry for your loss, another bright star in the Cosmos.

  23. Acey says:

    a little bit overwhelmed to realize we were releasing the particular connection of ‘best friend’ on the earthly plane right around the same time.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Acey)))You know that painting The Scream of Nature by Edvard Munch?
      I had a dream on Thursday night where I did a silent scream just like that,
      have never felt that deeply before, Julie’s funeral is on the 24th, we can’t be there…
      I was shattered yesterday, today I have cleaned the house and am getting back to drawing, life goes on…
      Fly Free (((Julie))) Fearless Spirit
