So sad to hear about Zombie tonight & cant find a new thread now that the keep the home fires thread is full?
Is there one?
Such a wonderful woman who will be missed by so so many people.
No words seem enough, just wanted to raise a glass 🥃 to toast the legend that is Zombie & the legacy she's left behind.x

Thank you for the new thread.

It was such sad news, poor dear Zomb, she will always be an eternal MN icon, with those third-person posts.

I was wondering if we could do a mass candle-lighting ceremony at (for example) 8pm UK which seems to be reasonable for global locations such as Euope, US, Oz/NZ etc). Perhaps throw it out there to see how it lands ....?

Everyone lighting their candle at the same time and think about our lovely Zombie and her extended zFamily and zFriends, for a couple of mins.

Candles sound lovely,I saw someone mention doing a wake on the other thread ,I'm not sure if anything was decided though?
I'm sure Fid or one of the original Phalanx will let everyone know,there are so many people who think a lot of Zombie.

Such sad news to wake up to. Travel well Zomb flowers

I originally tried to go on to the other thread to say that BathsLad spent yesterday in a multicoloured wig. grin

I have hardly slept and can't get to my reading glasses without waking AwesomePuppy so apologies if this is a mess, I've just read that dear Zombie has passed away and I feel so inappropriate for crying. We spoke on here twice, that's all, but it's a measure of the woman that that was unforgettable contact and she has touched so many people she never even met or spoke to. Rip Zombie ginflowers.

Goodbye Zombie. We didn't know each other but you touched my heart. I'll raise a ginto you tonight while I get on with trying to knit my first woolly hug square.

Longtime lurker and infrequent poster here.

Sleep well dear Zombie. We shall surely never see your like again.

Another occasional poster, but longtime lurker. I'm in Aus so I'm getting ready to raise a wine to Zombie. She had a smile I don't think I'll ever forget.

Well, buggerations. Condolences to zombies family, friends and everyone who was touched by her presence - on-line or otherwise.

Fly high. Fly free.

I take it Zombie has left us? I've said my farewells to her already but haven't seen an update because I haven't put myself on every phalanx thread.

HiDBandSIL Tue 31-Jan-17 06:10:38

gin gin ZOMBIE gin gin

RIP lovely lady.

Fiderer Tue 31-Jan-17 06:18:01

Ah fuck. Only just seen, whiskey thread most fitting.

Candy said we were allowed to be sad for a bit but not long & then she wants us to be raucous & celebrate her life. Not there yet myself.

Goodbye dear friend. Am glad for you it was a peaceful going. Will miss you, you old lush.

VintagePerfumista Tue 31-Jan-17 06:26:40

Deepest condolences to Zombie's friends and family.

Fiderer and Zombie's MN friends- be gentle with yourselves. You have been good people flowers

Bibbity her niece posted the following on fb at 9.39 last night:

To all friends/family of Candy Orr who I have not already been in contact with: Candy has just passed away peacefully in her sleep. Sweet dreams and burn bright Candle xxx
