I would like to start a thread to remember the lovely Magic8 who unexpectedly died this week, leaving behind a husband, a 4 year old daughter and 6 month old twin girls.

I would like to do more, like blankets, but I don"t know if it is my place.

Magic8, good friend, I am so saddened by your passing. I am crying for you, your spiderbabies and the rest of your family.
Rest in peace.

Oh my goodness that's terrible.
Poor Magic8.
Her poor family.
I don't know what to say.

That's utterly tragic. I'm so, so sorry for her family and friends.

Magic was a dear dear friend and I'm going to miss her warmth, humour, compassion and all-round fabulousness immensely. Truly one of life's loveliests.

Magic was the first person I met on MN. She'd just discovered she was pg again, but hadn't yet discovered she was having the spiderbabes. She was fab. As well as being a friend herself, she introduced me to some people who are now good friends, and was there for me when I lost my twins at 20 weeks.

It's so v v v sad that she's leaving her own little girls behind.

Magic - we love you. RIP and hope you are with Ruby. xxx

OMG that is utterly tragic. What happened?

magic8 showed so much compassion to people on these threads. She offerd advice, and ear and true kindness. For this to happen to such a lovely person is tragic. I hope that if her family ever get around to reading these threads, that they know how highly she was and is thought of. God bless x

Magic8s you were a true friend to me and saw me through some dark times, as hopefully I did you. We've also shared some magnificent highs, the birth of your beautiful spiderbabies and my own wee man. Hardly a day has gone past in the last 18 months where we haven't spoken on here or on FB. You were always so considerate of others and had an incredible positivity and ability to know just what to say to make us feel better. I am so sad that your beautiful girls have been robbed of their wonderful Mum and your DH has lost his lovely strong wife. I will always remember you, I am better for knowing you. God bless and thanks for everything pal xxx

what mou said

Plus, magic you always made me laugh, you were beautiful, strong, kind, compassionate and generous of spirit. I'm sure your gorgeous spiderbabies have inherited your warm loving nature.

You'll be very sadly missed, I can't belive we'll never speak to you again.

I hope your passing was peaceful and that you are with Ruby

Loads of love, RIP special lady.

How awful. I don't think I've ever come across her but I am so sorry to hear of this happening to any family.

TheMonster Wed 17-Aug-11 20:02:37

Sad news. COndolences to those close to her.

RosieMapleLeaf Wed 17-Aug-11 20:02:51

What terrible news. How heart-breaking for that family, my condolences to all who knew her. sad

Magic was a fantastic person. She found it funny when I had a mental blank and decided her gorgeous twin girls were boys. We were pregnant together and gave birth just weeks apart. She was full of wise advice as well as fun. I had the privilege of meeting her in real life and she was a great person. You could see how devoted she was to her girls.

I can't believe that she has gone. I want to share all the years ahead with her and watch our daughters grow up. Someone so full of love and life shouldn't be able to slip away like this.

Dearest magic16,

This is too hard to write. I remember you finding out it was spiderbabies so clearly. Since then you have been supportive, funny, kind and rude (in a nice way) to so many of us, I truly cannot believe this has happened.

Your girls got the best mummy, and I know you loved all four so very very much.

Thank you for all the laughs.

Rest in Peace with Ruby. Much love. xxx
