Heather Bare, known to bloggers as MommaBear, has passed away. Kathy Kinsley has a memorial post
, with links to others.
From March to November in 2002. MommaBear joined Andrew Ian Dodge's original Dodgeblog
; see her first
posts. That month she joined On The Third Hand - first post here
. She entered her last post
on June 24 this year:
Many Thanks to those who wrote or linked. You will not know just how much it means to MB to have friends rally round. It was a long tough last 4 years for PB [PoppaBear], but now MB is continuing the battle for her own life, undergoing chemo right now, with other “stuff” to come afterwards. She’s clawing and scratching her way all along this road - how else to go !!
Again, T H A N K S ! !
MommaBear was also a fellow member of the Axis of Weevil, Terry Oglesby's roster of bloggers with ancestral and/or current roots in Alabama; see the top of Possumblog for the complete list.
We will miss her.
Update: MommaBear had also posted as "Jeannie Fiona Macaulay" via several Andrew Ian Dodge projects, including his current blog Dodgeblogium - click here for his remembrance. This post gives a little dose of her sense of humor.
