I don't know if this is the right thing to do, and I'm so sorry if not.

catthiefkeith passed away today.

I know there are mumsnetters who know her know how amazing she is, and I just wanted to raise a glass to her memory on here, where she brought a smile to so many faces with her stories of her mad life.

Rest in peace lovely lady.

This is such a shock. I have read her posts many times, she is one of the few posters that I recognise on here. Are you able to say what happened to her?

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Fri 18-Aug-17 20:09:50

It was meningitis and very very quick according to what her DH posted on FB.

sad sad

TestTubeTeen Fri 18-Aug-17 20:09:51

Oh, no, this is dreadful.

She is the poster who was so excited to buy a little boat last year, I think.

Thank you, but please don't pass on condolences to me, there are so so so many people in her life who knew her better than me, but she was a lovely woman and she made the world a better place, including on here.

So wanted mumsnetters to be able to toast her, light a candle or whatever. Remember her and her amazing posts.
