I can't quite believe that I'm writing this post. sad

The lovely, funny, awesome mumsnetter who posted under the name of BerryLellow for the past 4 years, died very suddenly on Wednesday.

She leaves behind her her two gorgeous boys and many many shocked and saddened friends and family.

She was a big part of the September '09 ante/post natal group, which is how I met her on here, and why we have stayed in touch! Some of you will have met her at the London Christmas meet ups in 2010 and 2011 (she was the one who danced - and danced, and danced and danced, then danced some more!).

She will be so hugely missed. sad

Didn't know her as only joined mn in 2012 and mostly lurk but wanted to send thanks to anyone touched by this.

ExcuseTypos Fri 02-May-14 09:46:32

Oh I'm so sorry to hear this news. sad

What a terrible shock for all her family and friends.

OfficerVanHalen Fri 02-May-14 09:46:43

Oh no sad

I remember lovely Berry from the September '09 days.

This is really awful. I'm so sorry to hear this.

SecretNutellaFix Fri 02-May-14 09:50:16

Kveta, I am so sorry for your loss and her two boys as well.

This is awful.

Her poor family.


This is awful.

WaitMonkey Fri 02-May-14 09:52:51

Very sad, though I didn't know her. RIP. thanks

Oh no. I remember her from the September 09 group and met her at the Christmas parties. What a lovely woman. How sad sad

TrinityRhino Fri 02-May-14 09:54:11

RIP BerryLellow thanks

CorporateRockWhore Fri 02-May-14 09:58:56

I didn't know her at all, but two little, so awful. sad

I have been so shocked. I will miss her so much. She was kind and supportive and moved on from a friend 'from the internet' into a true friend. It is inconceivable that we won't be sharing mundane twaddle on facebook, won't be hearing about her boys, won't be supporting each other when things get a bit blah, won't be seeing her pins on Pinterest, or photos any more.

i didn't know her but this is terribly sad news. Her poor family sad thanks

RIP Berry.

Juaneeze Wed 07-May-14 17:20:04

Thank you all for the kind messages of love and support, these have all been passed on to the family and will be added to the book of condolence.

As Berry's mad cousin and dancing partner, I can tell you that we have been overwhelmed by the kindness demonstrated both on here and out there in the real world.

Her beautiful boys were the light of her life and continue to remind me of her daily but I know she would be so proud of them and how they've already begun to adapt to life without mummy. This really is a true testament to how much of a wonderful person she was and I only hope I can help raise the boys as she saw fit.

Thank you once again from Berry's family and friends xx

Kveta Wed 07-May-14 21:04:44

much love to you all Juaneeze, will be thinking of you on Monday xx

RatherBeOnThePiste Mon 12-May-14 06:53:27

Thinking of them today especially thanks

Another one here who was at that Christmas party, the one where we were downstairs, Berry was a hoot, dancing the night away, didn't she take all the incriminating photos? There was one of me looking totally trollied. Because I was! She was a proper hoot and absolutely lovely. I'm so sorry. Am thinking about her and her family, especially her boys.

Bless her heart. Huge love to all who love and miss her xx

Such very sad news.

Love to Berry's family and friends.


ShirleyKnotBeforeHeartbleed Tue 03-Jun-14 18:07:09

I can't believe this is true. I danced my head off with Berry (or Barry as I insisted on calling her) at one of the Christmas meet ups. She was beautiful, funny and just such a good laugh. What a dreadful loss.

My heart goes out to her family.

Thumbwitch Tue 03-Jun-14 18:12:02

Only just seen this, so very sad to read about Berry. DIdn't cross over with her much on here but she always seemed lovely. sad

Condolences to her family and friends, especally Juaneeze and Kveta.
